10/17/11 Report - Some Erosion This Morning

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of

Couple Detectorists Trying To Remove a Big Deep Target Near Water's Edge Saturday.

I think they came away from that hole without the object. It has been there for at least a couple of years and no one else removed it either. They gave it a good shot though.

Here is a great video showing the recovery of a cache of silver US and Spanish coins in a river.

Really fun to watch. Thanks to Bill P. for sending me the link.

A “ship’s knee” found in the mud of the Connecticut River may have come from the wreck of an American ship that was run aground by the British Navy some 200 years ago, marine historians say.

Here is the link to that story. I think you will find it interesting.

James F. sent in the following link to an article which talks about Oregon's laws against metal detecting.

There is a facebook site that people are joining to fight regulations like this and remind agencies that detectorists are voters, tax-payers, and part of the public that they claim to serve. You might want to look it up.

If you read this article and don't want to take the next step to help rectify the situation, I'll be surprised.

Caution: Don't read this if you can't afford to get your blood pressure up.

Treasure Coast Beach Detecting Forecast and Conditions.

You probably noticed the wind yesterday. It actually caused some erosion and scalloping on some of the Treasure Coast beaches.

One Treasure Coast Beach Monday Morning Showing Cut.

Here you can see what happened yesterday or last night. There was some erosion even though the wind was coming mostly out of the east.

It looks like we'll have three of four foot seas for the next couple of days and then maybe a reduction.

The disturbance down in the Gulf seems to be moving north and has a good chance of getting stronger.

We have a cold front that is coming Wednesday, I think.

Another disturbance is still out in the Atlantic. Too early to tell what it might do.

Happy hunting,
