Default Montego Bay RESULTS!!!!!! My best 8 hours ever!

Soooo, some may remember I was going to Jamaica to hunt. I hunted 4 hunts for a couple hours each hunt. Got 13 rings and 23 coins. A mix of us and foreign. What was amazing was there was next to no trash being a resort . I will leave out the how details cause if you couldn't read the beach properly, you would find nothing . What I really found strange was all white gold and only one yellow gold,,,,the smallest gold was 10k 6.7 GS,,,all others were 14k 8-10gs, with one 18k 8.5 GS
Take was
(1) 10k
(3) 14k
(1) 18k
(1) palladium
(3) tungsten
Couple silver
Couple junk
Sure, I have had better hunting by a really good find but this was epic in nature that I was scooping them saying, "there is another" and not a hunter in site
