GMT Doesn't Disappoint at Ganes Creek

I just got back from a great trip to Ganes Creek, AK... There were all brands of metal detectors there, but none found more nuggets than the White’s GMT. I found just under 2oz. It was my first trip to Ganes and I wasn't disappointed.

We had a great group, and a great support group, to help keep us all happy. Ganes has been a great hunting area for over 10 years. Maybe there are not as many nuggets as there once was, but it is still a great vacation for nugget hunters. As you can see in the picture, the GMT not only finds the large nuggets (1 and 1/3 oz.), but it will find really small ones too. I plan on going again next year, and my GMT will be at my side.
