Default ** Don't Walk Away! **

Three of us hit the beach this afternoon, boy was it hot 95℉ today.
Things were very quiet & signals were scarce.
After digging a great signal, I chased it around the hole scoop after scoop until I gave up with exhaustion from the heat.
Later after still no decent finds, I returned to the water-filled hole for another try.
Four scoops later and I had it in my hand .. another 9ct band,3.8 grams.
Same old story .. don't walk away.

#9 keeping on track!

Another beauty!!

I normally don't walk away from a signal unless I realize I'm in danger. Sometimes targets hunting out deep can get to where you can't dig any deeper with out going under. Cold water I have to walk away and try not think of what it could have been.
