Default Tremendous Fun Minus Gold on a 9 Ring Hunt*

Last week, I hunted Miami Beach on Wednesday and Friday and conditions were very sanded in. Yesterday, I decided to head back to another beach south of me that I had scored a gold and 2 silvers two weeks ago. I thought the slight and subtle wind shifts that we’ve had recently may have changed conditions there. Well, I was right; except it wasn’t the wet sand that was giving up the targets this time, it was near shore. I hunted over 5 hours with Noxy and I didn’t realize it since the morning was mostly overcast and rainy which helped with the brutal heat and humidity we’ve been having. It was basically non-stop action for over 5 hours and the only thing missing to make this hunt great was a little yellow or if that Gucci watch wouldn’t have been toasted, (Oh well, at least I have a Rolex ). Students were out last Friday and after this week I’ll be out for the summer “to recover”.

If anyone can identify the Hebrew on the ring please let me know what it says.

*(As for "9 rings", one of the rings has technically 5 rings ).

Nice to hit it non stop like that. Sounds like similar conditions here, when it's sanded in it is terrible...

Man, 72 pennies! You definitely put in some work that day. It's hard to ID those crusty ones with Nox, they always seem to throw different numbers.

Nice hunt!

Great pix. Great play-by-play. But it makes you wonder why ANYONE ever went to stainless steel and tungsten for wedding rings ? I mean ... sheesk. When I started this hobby, ALL WEDDING RINGS were gold or plat. No one ever stooped so low as to use non-precious metals in wedding rings
