    Some deposits are starting to show up

    Hit a bump in the road. Health issue but got surgery in late April and Doc said mid June I should be 100%. So I'm just starting to get back out.. Looks like this Sunday, not expecting much . Start out slow, and do some reconn... seems it takes me month to find the right spot for the year.

    Some deposits are starting to show up

    WTG TVR!! Good to see some yellow with using the AQ.. Heck of a machine. I think once the water gets warmer things will pick up for you. And as time goes by and once you learn the place better you will be kicking out the gold!! Good Luck and Be Safe!!

    What are your thoughts... some yrs ago I thought about replacing the original headfones ( bilson) on my cz20...

    Can you solder? I can track down the fittings you need If you want to go that route with inline connectors. Also you could do a good splice and seal which would work also. One thing for sure, I would not recommend opening the CZ up and doing it that way. I do have pictures on how to but best not...

    Metal detecting the beach next weekend.

    Have several friends who hunt OC year round. All I know of being found were 2 gold rings this year.. and was not on the ocean side. When I did hunt the OC ,,for me the best was once the ocean water got warm, mid July to mid Sept.. and after that only if we had a good storm. Only once did I find...

    How many are using the Excallibur II ?

    Use the Excalibur, Green and Blue about 80% of the time, the rest is the Fisher AQ. Once I know the beach using the Excalibur I will then determined if the AQ is the next step. All of my hunting with the Excalibur is in Allmetal, using the push button or toggle to check the target in...

    Fisher Impulse AQ

    Used one some but I really never liked it, it did hit deep but not like the stock big coil. So far I have 35 gold with the AQ, None with the "8" all with the other two coils I have, one is a stock coil "12.8" and the other is one a friend had made for me, which I really love.

    Thanks you! I could not hunt with a stock excalibur after using mine for years now. When I worked on stock machines I would have to go out and test them, pure torcher. Mom is in a much better place now. And Thank the Lord for his open arms! Yes, saltwater havoc, not sure if I posted this...

    Hope your well and finding treasures......Bob I would doubt it could beat yours. I still talk about you getting that ring at 18 inches!! I think I got it at 14... I have made a few improvements to the excalibur not to where it could hit 18 inches. I think one of the biggest improvement is...

    Has a lot to do with where I'm hunting. One spot I will skip all shallows. Two others I will dig a few shallows just to see. Today was different.... ..very first target Gold ring and it was only one scoop. It was my first time out in a few weeks, and remember that crazy flood tide we had a few...

    I guess my most found coin, the nickel, almost all ways. Not sure how much this relates since the bay is so different then the ocean. If I'm finding silver quarters the odds are the highest for me to find gold. Then silver dimes and nickels the chance is less, pennies.. are at the bottom of...
