Default Golden Sunrise Hunt

This is my 2nd hunt of the year and it was a dry sand hunt as conditions were just not favorable to go in the water. My unposted 1st hunt of 2018 was a few days ago and there was nothing special to it other than a toasted silver bracelet. Today was just about getting out, enjoying the sunrise and having some fun killing the clad. Which I did! I was out on South Beach with the Deleon and the clean sweep coil for 4 hours. This was my 1st hunt with a new wireless headphone setup that I had gotten together last month and I like it quite well though I still prefer the sound of my old Koss. Itíll take getting used to I think. I saw zero pirates in the water and another 2 doing the dry sand like me. One of the other pirates came up to me. He was from France and didnít speak any English. Whatís sad is I think I knew more French than he knew English did and we parted ways when I said ďbon chanceĒ. When I got home I was astounded to see how much clad I had pulled. I thought I had done well but was surprised at the amount of quarters and the $1 coin which I hadnít noticed since that was one of the 1st and came before sunrise. It was also neat to get the 1Ä coin since thatíll get used when I go over for my next summer hike in Spain. Over 170 coins and $13 in clad is a good hunt for me! No yellow other than the beautiful sunrise that I witnessed but thatís OK. Holiday break is over and itís back to work tomorrow!

Lots of clad there Felix. A nice hunt even though gold evaded your scoop.

Glad someone could get out. My beach is covered with snow. Roads are still hazardous from Wednesdays snow. South Carolina is not supposed to be snowbound.

Dang you still in the Felix pennies? I average 3 a hunt right now. During season there are more zincs that the stars behind the sun. Don't try counting

I bought it used just like the detector. They're difficult to come by.

Sorry to take a bit to get back. I wanted to get items that were inexpensive but had good reviews. I spent a good bit of time going over stuff on Amazon. I finally ended up getting the setup sooner rather than later because the headphones I was looking at became a "Lightening Deal" on Amazon and had $10 off from the regular $33 price. (Dirt and dry sand aren't my preferred hunts so I didn't want to spend too much money). Headphones are SMARTOMI HOOP Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones ($23.99) and the transmitter/receiver is ALTMAN ($15.99). They are both "APTX Low Latency" which from what I researched on here was important.

That earring looks just like a pair I got for my wife while in Aspen CO last summer on business. Supposed to be an actual Aspen leaf dipped in 14K gold.

95% of your coins werent in gold range.......need to work on that. Youd have a really boring day if you disc out a penny and above.

32 quarters and 31 dimes in the dry sand in the "off season" is pretty impressive, especially, with so many other pirates around. Fertile hunting grounds I'd say- congrats!

We have no "off season". Off season for locals is just in season for the Northerners, Canadians, Europeans, and Asians that come here.

Nice batch of finds! Even though they are not worth much, I like finding the foreign coins......
