Default Post Michael low tide shoreline hunt...Nice gold cross!

Two days out with the Xcal after Michael made its pass along our west coast. I was able to get out a few hours yesterday evening around sunset, and then put in 5 more hours on this mornings low. I have not been out for weeks because of the red tide, too much time for so little to gain...Lack of tourist limits the finds for sure!!
I was waiting for a good storm to come around and stir things up, maybe move the red tide out of here... But, the red tide is still present, so the smell and being careful not to step on a dead fish are part of the hunt.
Last nights finds were some coins and junk jewelry at one beach and this morning scored the 14k cross and 925 ring at another.

Nice finds, and I sympathize with the thought of having to hunt during red tide. Iím not from a beach area when I have visited during such events it has taken my breath away at times.

I'd say come on down, but west coast waters here are a toxic mess, nobody wants to vacation here lately...let alone the threat of being smashed by hurricanes ,2 years in a row now...I'm staying here anyway, I hate cold weather!!

Thanks...RT sucks, and this one has been really bad. Makes me cough, but the sea life has taken the worse hit...hundreds of thousands of fish, turtles, manatees and dolphin killed
