Default King tides & Nate = a little gold

It took the king tides and Nate to finally make a difference around here. I gave up after a half dozen post Irma hunts and went back to work since finds were far and few for the time put in. The Gulf had been like a lake along the beaches till Nate passed by, and besides that the tourist hardly filled the hotels even on weekends since Irma.
*The king tides along with Nate's waves moved some sand around, but mostly off the beach, I got the most coin ($5.98)... all the greenies and a 14k & Titanium ring off the slope yesterday morning during a low tide... It was still too rough to go in the water.
*This morning from the water scooped up a chain & 2 rings that are 925, $3.92 in coin and lots of lead and trash.
>>>The Gold ring is unmarked, but held its mark at 14k.

You guys getting blown away over there? Winds out of the east have kept the Gulf calm since Irma...This was my first Gold in a month.

Thanks Steve, It is a different animal. I was thinking custom and was hoping to see a signature.

Nice pile of targets. I love it when the clad is all green like that. That means mother nature has grouped many years of targets together.

You are doing wel DL. That's a nice looking collection of green coins. I like it like that. Now go back and pull some more gold. Nice showing Buddy.

Great haul DL that broken odd shaped yellow would have sounded crazy if you were using a VLF

King tides were as high, if not higher, as if it were a TS storm surge, and with Nate's rollers reaching all the way over here it really exposed some fresh area to hunt, but so far just one gold ring

Hunting in PP with the ExCal, Signal was good enough to dig even with out switching to disc. Thanks 18k

Got that right TK, Major high tides with a little wave wash beach action can sometimes be a good thing. Thanks
