Swimming holes are good too and especially ones with a rope from a tree where they swing over the water.One time the water on Lake Wylie was way down and there is a sand bar everyone hangs out at during the summer that was exposed. A friend of mine told me that they knew someone that went out and found almost $10,000.00 worth of jewelry in 3 days.
I'm on it next time the water drops!!!!!
Another one of the posted areas here now but years ago a guy did the same on one on the Etowah river and found thousands worth of jewelry and coins where people had lost it swinging into the river.
