My search includes any land with owners permission or water up to 30ft. In depth. I dive with hookah. I am scuba certified.

Paul Miederhoff's Bio

I am a retired electro-mechanical technician who spent 5 years in the U.S. Navy. I started metal detecting in 1984 and started under water detecting in 1999.

I have done several types of successful searches: tornado victim's valuables, lost rings in and out of water, survey markers and all types of lost metal items. I use a Fisher 1280x water machine and a Teknetics T2 SE land machine.

I am always looking for places to metal detect. I love to show kids and adults how to metal detect using my 2 spare detectors. I am passionate about my hobby. One of my greatest pleasures is seeing the happy look on people's faces who are reunited with their lost valuables
