    I have found just about everything everyone else mentioned, but at a very low full moon tide, I found a minnow trap FULL of CrawDads. That was my favorite find.

    Like most here I have found the normal items mentioned. Nets, Rods/Reels, tackle, and etc. Found several Hoop Nets, while cranking lures. Nothing of large value.

    I haven't found anything of great value, lures and bobbers and such, but I keep losing my red handled needle-nosed pliers. I really need to tape the handles up bright yellow or something, because being color-blind, I set them down on the ground after removing the hook from a fish and they may as well be camouflage, I can't see them. To everyone else they stick out like a sore thumb, but if I don't put them right straight back in my backpack after use, they are missing. My friends always wonder why those things are packed back up in the bag whenever they fish with me, they just leave them laying out. I'll scan the area before I leave to make sure I am not leaving anything behind and miss them.

    Typical trash. nothing of any high value. for some reason I seem to find a lot of tennis balls and golf balls along the banks and I'm not exactly in a city area. mostly corn/soy bean fields around the river

    Found a pair of boxer-briefs with crap stains, a diaper, lures, bobbers, beer bottles & cans, empty worm containers, and half of a rod.

    Seriously though, don't be a turd; keep our fishing places clean. (I hope I don't need to tell ya'll this)

    Not much I have not found. Most all of the above 'cept the pump and doll.

    Some of the more unusual,,, a go kart, beer, booze, and controlled substances, and about a mile of power and telephone line complete with poles.
