Default * Sinkers and Gold *

Did a 4 hour session today and a lot of walking too!
Nice low tide and was able to get out to an area that has thick mud about 3 or 4 inches under the sand.

Lots of targets mainly sinkers ,or as Max would say " Grey Matter City"
I was digging in the thick blue/green mud for most of them.

Plenty of targets in the 12 to 16 range on the Nox and I dug them all .. all pull-tabs except for this one came in at 15 in the mud! 9ct band,weight 3 grams

Congrats on the gold! I was looking at some video of air tests with different gold ring sizes and types and I was a bit surprised at the VDI range on them.
