Default First gold!

Hi folks. Spend alot of time reading on this forum but now I finally have something to report! Scooped it right away this morning, I could feel all the guys surf fishing looking at me so I couldn't even do a little dance for my first gold. 14k 5 grams. Hunted for another hour or so and barely even came up with a couple bottle caps.

Just need to find a few more so I can upgrade from my old 6000 pro xl. She's on her last leg, I think.

Thx for reading

Ahhh, nothing like seeing yellow in the sand or in the scoop. Its a feeling that you cant describe, one that you can't buy, one you can't replace. Congrats
