Post Gold coins
Found these coins to day in the park after our local fishing comp which lasted 3 days (Called the "Boyne Tannum Hookup" supposed to be the biggest comp in Australia) Took about 6 hours, so on 11 bucks an hour so not to bad
Total find $66.95

That's a nice effort, so what did you spend them $s on?

I bought a 3030 about 6 weeks ago or so , been out a few times with it, 1st two outings with it were up the sh!t as I was still getting used to it and and since then knowing what target numbers to look for and running an open screen has made live so much nicer LOL

I took it to a park that yielded $270 for a 20x20m section , I gridded it and thought I got everything of it , took the 3030 over it last week and without even trying found another $12 from only a 5x5m section, more fun to be had at that spot only problem the rest of the park that got me $2367 with my old 705 is huge and I dont realy feel like gridding it all over again as it took 8 months to do so

I had today off and went to a park nearby that had a lot of traffic 2 weeks ago , 2 hour swing time $49.65 , fills the time and builds upper body strength

Off to an inner Sydney city private beach in the morning ,full of snobs , just my luck I'll only find credit cards :D

The CTX3030 count to date is $300 + $100 silver/diamond ring
