212 Target Day and GOLD

Went to a lake and hunted a beach with a friend that must have not been hunted in a long time. I was using my Excalibur II and he was using his Garrett At Pro. I was getting hits after hits digging it all. I started working the buoy line that separates the deeper water from the shallow side I got a low foil like tone. I figured it was just a wrapper from a cigar pack like I have gotten before. To my huge surprise I saw a Yellow Bracelet hanging half out of my scoop and after looking it was marked 14k but had CZ's in it! A little while later we decided to take a break and as I was just about out of the water I got a tone that was higher pull tab. when I was washing the clay out I saw a sweet sight of yellow again. This time it was a 10k men’s ring with some small real stones. WOW 2 gold but I was not done. LOL. We continued to hunt for a while after our break and just at the end my LAST target of the day at the water’s edge again was a blip on the Excal. I dug 2 scoops and in the bottom of the clay clog I saw a tiny yellow ring. It is 10k and missing whatever was in the center of it. BIG WOW 3 gold items! I ended the day with Gold some silver and $11.95 in Clad! My buddy found 1 silver stud earring and about $6 in clad. I love my Minelabs!
