Ryan Cole's Bio
I am a very skilled detectorist and have reunited many people with their lost rings or items. Lake Michigan is my mainstay, but I also frequent many inland lakes around my area, often out detecting daily. Don’t delay calling when dealing with Lake Mi, items can quickly be covered in several feet of sand or sink to Davy Jones’ locker during wind/wave action (varies by location). Accurate GPS coordinates can obviously help greatly. Consider abandoning an anchor with long rope at the loss location if thats possible, or another metallic object/etc that will stay put. Lining up the loss-location with multiple landmarks can help the search effort. Sometimes even just a long line, or or better yet, two separate lines drawn in the sand from different spots (that won’t be walked on), pointing to the loss location can help, along with noting the water depth on your body. Cell phone photos taken at the loss location can sometimes be helpful, if landmarks are in the photo or if geo-location data was enabled. I can’t work miracles, but I will try to the best of my abilities to find your lost item for you!
