Lost wedding band recovered in Door County lake

  • from Green Bay (Wisconsin, United States)

June 27th,  I was called up to a Door County cottage to find a ring that was lost the previous weekend. It was next to the dock on the “fishing” end of the lake, which means muck and weeds! It took me 90 minutes of probing with a small coil on the Minelab Equinox 800 and a Vibraprobe, but after being misled by a few really old beer cans that were opened with a can opener and a few bottle caps and pop tabs, I finally teased it out of 18″ of muck. I also looked at the far end of the dock for a gold watch that was lost years ago, but the silt was shoulder deep, so all I got was a beauty treatment, if that is what muck in your hair does. The water felt good, though. It was nice to get Chris’s 14k gold wedding band back on his finger where it belongs.
