Default Went to the lake to look for some trash today.

I spent about 5 1/2 hours digging in the dry beach area of the lake. My goal was to dig as much trash as possible and it worked out great I was able to nab a few keepers among the junk, silver toe ring, 2 silver earrings and a silver chain with the pendant. Also dug the usual clad and junk jewelry as well.

Ran the Nox 600, my settings were:
Park 1
F2-0
Sens-
Recovery-3
Man GB-4
1-Tone

I dug everything from-2 up

That's an awesome silver chain and pendant- congrats on the other finds as well! I really like the picture of the exposed treasure in the rocks as well- hunting a drained lake is a thrill every lake hunter should experience.

Good finds! And you are half way to a good fishing trip, as well!

Thanks everyone, it's a lot of work, but, it feels great to find a crumb every now and then.

Lots of gooodies there and that pendant is nice! I am surprised at how many sinkers you got.

Thanks Felix.

I guess this particular point is a good fishing spot, plus, there are a lot of rocks for the hooks and sinkers to get caught on.

You certainly did do a lot of digging! But that"s a must to find the good stuff!
