Default * Sinkers and Gold *

I had a big day on the sinkers yesterday,so I went back to the same spot again today.
It's true that where heavy targets are like sinkers there are probably gold items.
Today proved that theory right.Scored a nice heavy 18ct band - 6.8 grams and a 9ct ring with ice - 4.3 grams.Also a few more sinkers,some coins including a 1953 Florin.
I also had a chance to quickly hit up a couple of beach parks and scored myself $21 .. paid for a nice lunch!

Sputnix sinkers....... i get a few of them as well. Maggie or it could mean you are hunting in a high traffic fishing area. I know you are right...... but ive dug some of those sinkers over a ft deep........ ugh to gold being down that far with its sensitivity.

Excellent finds there........
