Product Overview
The Fisher Gold Bug 2 is a legendary gold nugget hunter from the oldest name in metal detection. This model is based on the classic gold bug design that has been perfected over many years.

Like the original Fisher Gold Bug metal detector, the Fisher Gold Bug-2 is designed for finding gold nuggets. It offers extraordinary sensitivity, ultra-high frequency (the highest operating frequency on the market), iron-discrimination, dust and moisture resistance, audio-boost and the ability to operate in extremely mineralized soil with a 3-position mineralization switch. Backed by Fisher's 5 Year Warranty.

  • Powerful 71kHz Operation for extreme sensitivity to small gold nuggets.
  • “IRON DISC” mode rejects iron (trash) targets and hot rocks.
  • Resistant to dust and moisture.
  • Boosts audio signal of small and deep targets.
  • Convertible to hipmount or chest mount.
  • Weighs only 2.9 lbs.
  • Quartz-crystal locked electronics.
  • 10" Search Coil
  • Takes only two, drop-in, 9-V batteries. (Included)
  • Dual-knob ground control for coarse and fine adjustment.
  • *5 Year Warranty*

Fisher Gold Bug-2 Includes these Standard Factory Items:

  • 10" Elliptical Search Coil
  • Two 9 volt alkaline batteries
  • 5-Year Warranty
  • Detailed Instruction Manual
  • Introductory Subscription to Lost Treasure Magazine
