A Great Week Lake And River Digg'n!:thumbup:

Headed out early this morning. The ice melted on this lake a little over a week ago. It was cold........but the sun was out in full force. I lasted about 3 hours with my chest waders, then headed back home.

I did get a good variety of finds. And.....a little $$$ is always a welcome find. Got to save up for my annual gold coin.

Here's ring#4, and a vintage PONDS compact.

Some more vintage finds! A spinner similar to the one shown just sold for $50.00 on a bid, in worse shape then mine. Some poor fellow lost his ignition key to his Chrysler boat many years ago. Poor guy!

Yesterday I headed down to the river, and spent most of the digging concentrating on getting grass growing on floodplain. Flour gold apparently gets caught in the roots when the river is high. I put it to the test and the rumor is correct. I also sprayed a little diluted dish soap on the areas I was digging, as soap acts as a surfactant, breaking the surface tension of the water, preventing some of that lite gold from floating away.

I always watch my tailings and large rocks. I lucked out and dug up a nice size piece of petrified dinosaur bone. A nice addition to my rock collection!
