  Dear White's,

I am an avid outdoors guy and I will never pass up a chance to go Salmon fishing when they are running here on the Smith River. However, this year was different than the other years. The fish where running and we caught a few but while fishing I could not help but notice the large amount of lures being lost to the rocks at the location including a few of our own.

The lures are solid metal and weigh in around ½ to 1 ounce that most guys use. The next trip to the fishing hole I returned not with my fishing pole but my White's Surfmaster PI detector and sand scoop. The tide was at its lowest for the day and I began "fishing" for treasures on the beach. Within minutes I had my first target and it lasted that way until the sun went down.

Fishing lure after lure I dug up, some sitting on the surface and some at 2 feet down and everywhere in the middle. I scored big that evening! I filled my tackle box back up and then some digging over 20 lures in an hour's time. Now that was fun! When is the next low tide? I had recently had my Surfmaster tuned by White's service department and it is great! The results are the proof!

Thanks for the great service!

Jason M.
