    (A ) give it a bit of time -- we got 4 days of 20 mph + NNE winds expected ---let the wind do its thing --- and (B )the high waves will be doing their part too. ---plus (C) you got to be at the right spot (research amigo) --- its as simple as A, B, C

    At Vilano, you'll need to work the cut between low tide and the sand bar. The entire "shelf" (about 4 ft. of sand was taken out. I was out surveying the turtle nests yesterday. Sadly, two of the recent nests were washed out. I plan on hitting Matanzas inlet (actually just north of the ramp access) tomorrow. Either way, be sure to work the cuts as the goodies will settle as the sand is swept out to sea. Good luck and happy hunting.

    yes I indeed can "see" in my minds eye exactly what this rare bit of weather conditions can do --- a steady 4 day long --20 mph or better NNE winds with both rain and high surf eating away at the beach sands --- old and rare items long unseen might see the light of day for the first time in many many years ---- if one is at the right place at this right time and your finds could be very impressive indeed , I think.

    You can hunt the dry beach part of the state park. The rest is off limits. Supposedly, you aren't allowed to be in the water detecting as it is assumed you are looking for old stuff. The dry sand is fair game as they assume you are only looking for lost clad and the like. Just be sure to fill your holes. Don't ruin it for others. Now, I say "supposedly" with regards to the water, but enforcement is so lax that I doubt you'll raise any suspicion. Just be sure to be out of the water before the swimmers and lifeguards show up. Note: Be prepared to dig. The state park's beaches are littered with shrapnel.

    Vilano was nice today. There was some other old-timer out there, but I wasn't worried about the competition. His search coil was at a 45 degree angle pointing upwards, and he was swinging fast. Also, he was stuck up on the "dry" sand. I was working a cut at low tide about two feet deep between the sand bar. Got a few crusty finds. There were a few exposed bricks that I was quick to remove. They are relics from the foundation of the Vilano casino that had it's heyday back in the roaring 20's.

    Warning for those that are going to hunt the First Coast: Portuguese Man O'War have been washed up on the beach. They will still sting if you aren't careful where you walk. For those that venture into the surf, be alert.

    man o wars are called that for a reason --- steer clear of em -- even dead they can "sting" and are very very bad --- if stung --vinager to counter act it and go to a hospital asap. ---man o wars and jelly fish are found in the area at times--- the storms high east / north east winds most likely swept em in from off shore.
