I was using the equinox with 15 inch coil. Not gonna lie, it was tiring when targets were slim. I was happy to find a bottle cap just give my swinging arm a break.

You must have quite a tan after that much hunting and digging at the beach.

Lol she was still asleep every morning when I got back. Did bring her breakfast though. Gotta score those points when I can. The last time I found something she liked was way back on the first day I ever detected. We went to a park and I found a silver claddagh ring. That was 2004. Itíll probably be another 15 years before I find something else confiscation worthy.

At first I hunted from 20th to the inlet, then I just drove down to about 5th and found street parking and hunted around there. The day we left, parked in the inlet parking lot. Man that place was packed. Iíve never seen so many people packed out in that beach.

Thanks. I donít even really mind the junk, just happy to be out digging, especially at the beach.

Fantastic! I have hunted OC a couple times. Once for 3 nights at low tide and couldn't scrounge up a thing. This was in October so late. You are a beast. Congrats.

I guess timing is everything. I spoke to one hunter who said he finds more in the fall/ winter months when there are storms/beach erosion. But the latest in the year Iíve hunted has been September, finding mostly a little clad.
