Default Gold Still Elusive but not the Silver Bracelet

Conditions were very rough this weekend. Too rough for any idea of getting into the water so I opted for a wet sand hunt with Noxy. I saw some glimmer of hope for some erosion at the beach that I went to, but it was not enough. I think I will now be getting the 15” coil just for wet sand hunts as I think the extra depth would’ve been beneficial yesterday on my 4-hour hunt. I thought the bracelet was going to be a “ME” penny due to the 18-19 VDI so I was surprised when the tarnished silver bracelet showed up. Almost 2 months gone by in 2021 and still no glint of yellow in the scoop.

I think the rest of the mods are trying to keep Felix pennies away from you since they hurt your eyes.

Nice bracelet- congrats!! Grey silver is always a welcome sight and I think that it will clean up nicely.

No... I'm busy keeping the spammers and riff raff off the forum and feeding the deer birds
