Got the hip waders out Beav.  We are at super low and high tides.  It seemed like the ocean floor
was my playground it was out that far.
Yes a fisherman, he carried a coffee can with holes in the bottom like a punchplate, and a small gold pan,
and a garden trowel, took in nice gold from further out.  So I concentrated on traps, had a great first pan.

Thanks Mcbain and Joe.

In that specific area you are at, TRAPS are where the gold is. (I know exactly where you are...But my lips are sealed).

Yes Mcbain, I put my weight count in most of my posts, hidden at the bottom, white on white.

This year I did not go out as much, did under a gram.
Year to Date 0.76 grams
Total Lifetime14.27 grams
Almost enough for a couple of rings.
