Default Couple of odd ones....

Ive found my fair share of 22K.........but today i got a 23K (5 grams) and another odd one..... 950 silver (11.9 grams). Spent about 7 hours in the water..... saw 4 or 5 snowbirds kicking sand..... they watched, but didnt want any of the cold water. Also grabbed a nice pair of Ray Bans setting on the bottom and a fair amount of targets. One of the snow birds said hes going to have to get an Xcal because there arent any pull tabs or bottle caps in the water.

You should've told him "It's all gold and silver in the water buddy!"

Craig........... i had a moment.

Tim.... buddy...... 7 hours and i came out walking like John Wayne. The water is a bit cold. If im going to find odd things out there... let it be gold. Got some nasty Red Tide hanging around right now.

Joe...... them on the other side of the island should be out there looking for some treasure pushed in by IRMA now.

Thanks all.
