Magnet fishing attempt two, a brace of coins.

Well after my first attempt at magnet fishing produced little more than a flatfish ( oh the irony!) I had pretty much decided to give up on magnet fishing. However this morning I had a couple of hours to spare and a strange craving to give it another try!

So off I went to the local river foreshore. The weather was less than perfect with a cold eerie deep for sweeping in from the river which brought visibility down to around 15ft.

Sorry to any fish fanatics, there was non to be had. However I did manage to winkle out a brace of coins to compensate for it.

I hope you enjoy the video and give it a thumbs up to make me happy lol.

Happy hunting y'all!

Metal detecting, is that a gold coin ?!!

Well after a break from detecting for around four weeks I finally managed to squeeze a few hour in today, finally a chance to put the new XP Adx250 through its paces.

I had originally wanted to go over to my ploughed field permissions but unfortunately the farmer has already stuck the crops down so that was that idea out of the window! To the pasture permission we shall go then!

The settings I used were ones that I was recommended by forum members who know this machine inside out, the settings used were D2 with discrimination set just before foil and sensitivity as high as I could get without any falsing, this was pretty much maximum.

Please check out the video below to see how I got on and find out if I finally found my first gold coin !

Magnet fishing, my first attempt!

So after seeing and hearing about the art of magnet fishing a few times I thought I would have a crack at it.

I bought two 64kg pull magnets off eBay and attached them to a piece of slotted channel/unistrut that was in the work scrap bin using some 8mm threaded rod, washers and nuts. Too this I attached 30m of strong rope and also a bottle pointed up horizontally to keep the magnets facing the bottom when in the water.

For my first attempt at magnet fishing I headed to an old shipping channel which is now a drain, only half a mile from my house.

Oh the flippin irony, I go magnet fishing to try and find some treasures. Maybe an old musket or sword, even a tesco shopping trolley was a possibility. However this was not the case. Please check the video on YouTube by clicking Here to seesee what I found.

I will be back out magnet fishing this weekend with any luck so please check back to find out what I get this time around. Hope you enjoy the video :)
