Lake Michigan is welcoming and stunningly beautiful, and she will kill you. Really fast. What looks like fun summer waves can be covering an undertow that can pull a grown man off his feet and pull him out into the lake under the waves. Rip currents are even worse.

Check out these freighters, they are 700 to 1000 feet long. There is a storm out on the lake and they are not even considering fucking with it.
They are at anchor waiting it out.

I would reply to this thread more often but I've been involved in some serious negotiations with some nefarious South American fellows involving the importation and delivery of several schools of Bull Sharks.. By the way a few ounces of gold go a long way in Venezuela, Bull Sharks are like a dime a dozen.

I'm sure brother Irons has covered this somewhere already, but I gotta believe he is using a wet suit. Last year in early July I took my family on an RV trip. Coming through the Upper Peninsula we stopped near Pictured Rocks and I took a dip in Lake Superior with my son. Damn that was some cold water!

BTW, nice ring, Irons.:D

Mostly he uses this technique when He steals these diamonds, er, goes "sand fishing"...................


Note how he deftly slips from the wetsut, already wearing a classic tuxedo, detonates the explosives escapes with the girl?

Hopefully this was a tourist. From ill-annoy.
There are the same warnings going on right now for the entire West coast of Michigan,
and I guarantee you there are idiots on the piers as we speak.

Man Dies After Being Swept off Lake Michigan Pier
Police say a man has died after being swept off a Lake Michigan pier in Frankfort.
Aug. 25, 2018, at 4:39 p.m.



FRANKFORT, Mich. (AP) — Police say a man has died after being swept off a Lake Michigan pier in Frankfort.
TV station WPBN-WGTU reports that the man went into the water before 10 a.m. Saturday. He was pulled from the lake, but efforts to revive him failed. An autopsy is planned.

There have been weekend warnings about waves and dangerous swimming conditions up and down the Lake Michigan coast. In the Upper Peninsula, the National Weather Service issued a beach hazard statement for Schoolcraft County.

Gold #23 2018

No big story just a nice 14k pendant on a sunny day at the tourist deserted beach!

Finally I have my beaches back!
My math skillz are weak but you're averaging something like a chunk of GOLD every week and a half.

The panning in these here creeks ain't bad! I was off all last week and it rained a lot so we went and scouted a new to me but old, old lake that had several resorts and camps on it back in the day. There are many original old cottages on it too.
Aaaaand I found 2 well hidden public access spots that will put me in the middle of a lot of good hunting. I am giving the summer people the rest of September to clear out and I'm in there. .

Just being the first fool in a lake with a metal detector is the best ever! I have had that pleasure a few times now.
Old coins, tokens, shotgun shells, brass lipstick tubes, combs, barrettes and hair pins. Old metal tubes of Prell shampoo.

And old old Gold!

Didn't know Prell was that old, nor ever pondered metal poo tubes. Shoot, you can even learn history in Iron's gluttony for gold thread!

I'm a sucker for old shtuff. Happy hunting bro! :)

Thank you Sir! An old lake allows me to morph into a zen like trance, listening to the symphony of 100+ years worth of lost stuff.

Alright I've typed 3 responses then swiftly recognized them as way too grumpy and insulting. So... I'll just leave you with this. If that thing actually contains gold content melt it as fast as you can.. cause in its current state.... well. Gumball machine.

Looks like something worn by trailer trash. Prolly out of an Interstate gas station vending machine in Indiana.

I don't worry about finding old murder weapons, one of these days I'm going to find a murder victim.
Strolling around in lakes at first light, especially Lake Michigan the early birds are usually the ones who bump into a floater. As unpleasant as that will be it will also bring up a major dilemma.

Do I call the police right away or check it for jewelry/wallet/Gold teeth first? Damn!

I'll just continue to hope some other fool is the first one at the beach that morning.
