I received a late night email from Meghann that her husband Lynden had lost his wedding band in Lake Michigan at Christmas Cove beach earlier in the day. They spent from 4:30 pm till 9:00 pm looking for the ring but the waves and undertow was to bad to see anything. Meghann was researching underwater metal detectors and my information came up. I was actually down state 3 hours visiting my parents. I told her I could go search for the ring as soon as I got home. Due to the location I was not really worried about anybody else finding the ring.

I got home at 3:30 and loaded up to head to Christmas Cove. Lynden met me at the location to show me the exact the spot they were set up at. That always helps a lot and saves a lot of time. Gave me the indecent report. He was on his hand and knees with his younger children playing in the surf. He felt a rock bump the ring off his finger. He told me due to the large waves and undertow he wrote the ring off, I knew better though. The water was chocolate colored and the waves were crashing on shore pretty hard. The rain was starting back up so Lynden headed back home and was going to wait on my results. I made 3 passes back and forth with my Excalibur II then got a deep choppy signal. I dug down about 10 inches got the signal in the scoop and headed to shore with it before the waves got me. Dumped out the scoop and found the ring. Gave Lynden a text asking it he wanted this back. He immediately called and could not believe I found so fast it in all the waves and turmoil. He was about 15 minutes down the road so we met at a local grocery store.

 

Keys found after falling in Lake Leelanau, Mi

I saw a post on a local Facebook forum asking if anybody had a waterproof metal detector. I answered and got a response from Marcy that her husband lost his keys in 3 feet of water. They had tried to use a rake to get the keys but had no luck. They keys were lost over the side of a dock with muck about 12 inches deep. I drove up to the location and got in the water and immediately got stuck in the thick muck. It was very difficult to move and turn around. I ended up getting a faint signal I told Marcy was not the keys but dug it anyways. It was a piece of aluminum about 10 inches long. Searched a couple more minutes and got a stronger signal. I told Marcy this signal should be the keys. I was trying to dig the signal out with my T-Rex scoop and having issues because the muck was so thick and deep. Just then a neighbor walked past and offered the use of her large magnet on a rope. I ended up trying to drop the magnet hard into the muck to get it deeper. After about 5 tries the keys came out. I will be adding a large magnet on a rope to my equipment I take on jobs from now on. Now Marcy and her husband can get there vacation started.
