Re: How is Topsail looking now?

Yeah, Topsail can be hit and miss. I found a some clad and junk earrings, plus a little silver locket from a necklace about two weeks ago myself. There was some sand movement at the time. The finds came from in front of beach houses, too. This time of the year, though is when I have found all of my ...

Re: Night hunt on Sunday, April 9th

Loving that gold! Well found, Hawkeye. And thanks for the excellent write-up. I have been working non-stop and haven't had the chance yet to get back on the beaches, but I am hoping to this week. If so, I will send an update. Meanwhile, long may your luck continue! Thank you! Hopefully you can get ...

Night hunt on Sunday, April 9th

Last night, I decided to strike out at 10:00 PM to hunt my new spot/area. The low tide was at 1:54 AM, so I thought I would stay until midnight or so. So, as I am driving, I contemplate where to hunt. My usual spot was pretty pounded out by now, and the weather and winds and changed as I took note f...

Finds from another night hunt on 6 April

So, I went back to my new spot that has produced silver coins and old rings. We had some storms roll through the previous day, and Onslow County was under a high surf advisory. I was happy to see this, and went out. The sand had moved some, but not like I was hoping. I surmised that I had picked her...

How is Topsail looking now?

So, I live close by the island but have not been over in about a week and a half. The last time I went, I found NTB to be sanded in once again. Same with doggone Surf City. In fact, I have not found any gold on Topsail since fall 2015. I know it is there, on the hard pan and in the water. I just hav...

Re: Repulse Bay, Hong Kong

Nice effort. Hope you can score some high grade gold or platinum over there!
Never have been to China. When I was active duty, I lived in Okinawa, Japan for 5 years. I wish I had been into detecting back then, I could've found some nice jewelry. HH and take care!!

Re: My hunt from Monday night 4/4/17

Well found, Hawk. That CZ-21 seems to be a silver magnet. Keep the pics coming when you can. And congrats on your retirement. What are you going to study? Thank you, antiphonus. Yes, my CZ-21 does well with silver. I have been lucky to find three gold rings with it, but so far the beach conditions ...

Some finds from last October 2016

So I lost my password to the site for a while, thus my absence from here since I joined. Anyways, after Matthew hit last year and I found my first silver coin, I decided to try out a spot that I had only visited sparingly since I started hunting. Well, I am glad I went because the reward in coins wa...

My hunt from Monday night 4/4/17

Hello all, It has been a long time since I last posted on here. Life has changed for me and kept me busy. I just recently retired from 20 years of active duty Naval service and finished up some home improvement projects. Anyhow, I currently have more time to enjoy my hobby until I start school in Ma...

Re: Hello from Sneads Ferry

Thanks for the welcome. I usually hunt from NTB down to Surf City. I have tried Topsail Beach once, but was mad due to all the sand they have down there. :x Anyways, I am keeping an eye out on North Topsail Beach. Their town council is looking at doing a possible dune push some time this winter. So,...

First silver coin found on the beach

Just wanted to show off my first ever silver coin compliments of Matthew. Found it at night on October 9th. Someone had been out before me with what appeared to be a Minelab machine due to coil impressions left in the sand. This other person needs to learn to fill in their holes and grid better as w...

Hello from Sneads Ferry

Howdy all, I live in Sneads Ferry and have been detecting since 2013. I originally grew up in Randolph County, NC and joined the US Navy back in 1997. I will soon be retiring from that job and will be spending more time detecting until I go back to work. My first detector was an ACE 350 that I found...
