Default Got one...



Awhile back was just clearing out some trash from the water and BANG!!! BIG!!! yellow!!!

Got onto a deep target, sounding off like a piece of propeller blade. If I had had a lot of beach still to cover would have left it but today was trash day nothing much else to dig going from the recent past hunts so started digging down to it and I think on my 3rd or 4th scoop I got this monster mid tone "everywhere" from the bottom of the crater swung around a bit and guessed where the centre of the target was and took a good long deep sweep with the scoop, damn still there so took another scoop full.
Rechecked the hole and only got the prop blade sounding off in the bottom back of the hole, looked in the scoop and yellow "everywhere" Sweet!!! 60g of 18K

Thanks for viewing

18



The bracelet was twisted and jammed up with sand when I picked it out of the scoop. Took me ages to get it straightened out.

Thanks Alan for putting me onto "postimages.org" much appreciated brother











After a light polish.




The piece of boat prop.

DANGGGGGGG... I'm feeling all proud of myself for my little 14K ring with diamonds, and you go and pull out a bar of 18K. LOL

That's AWESOME! So jealous. That must have been quite a rush!

Great Merciful Me! Three cheers and a Bengal Tiger to you for the find and especially for going after that big 'Junk' signal and not giving up on it!
