Spent a long weekend at my camper near Myrtle Beach and beach hunting has been a cruel mistress to me until now. This was at the end of the first bike rally so lots of folks in the water. I went out on low tide and a bowl shape area was exposed. It is full of crushed shells and large shells were all along the top of the ridge. This same spot was there last year and gave me a lot of different costume jewelry. The ladies watch and Matchbox trailer have been in the water long enough to grow barnacles. Will be back in 10 days for a week long vacation and have already laid out what time I do things all around low tides. 2- 14g rings and 3 costume rings. So far the coil performed well on the beach. I can tell my target count and depth went way up from last time I was there and used the 11" Pro. Set on Auto. and stable going from wet to dry sand.
