Boca Grand FL
Got curious and paid the $5 to cross the bridge today to check out the beaches since id never been there. Lot of Public accesses and the state beach... but not huge. $3 to park at the State Park and am i correct you can only hunt the beach NOT the water in Fl state parks? Anyone ever hit these areas? Anyone interested in taking a day and hitting these accesses?

Dew if I was you stay away from Boca Grand,bad place to go. Know one hunts there for a reason,it has been known to be haunted,and this is not a joke.

You can't legally hunt in the water in Fl. state parks. You used to be able to, until they revised the Isolated Finds Policy some years back. Now it's low tide line to the dune line only.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink it.

I got a response from Can Slaw saying the Rangers had put it off limits to detecting. That might make sense at the State Park.... but im not sure of their authority to deny it for the whole island. Ill have to do some checking i guess. Seems like a lot of people are trying to discourage me here.

Ft Desoto is a county park not a state park.
