    Gold Coins found - Florida Panhandle

    Now that I have your undivided attention!
    I recently retired, my 26 year career as a Civil Engineer with the Fed is complete!
    My occupation is now a treasure hunter! The business card pic is me at detectin surf at naples pier with me excalibur II.

    My lady and I plan to ride my new 2012 superglide to the Florida pan handle for sand/surf detectin with me excalibur II. The plan is to detect surf & sand Thursday, Friday, Saturday (October 18, 19, 20). If you had a couple of days to detect, what beach(s) from Pensacola to Panama City would you recommend?

    If you'd be avail for a meet-up to detect with a guy from misery, I mean missouri, and know of a couple of good beaches, send me an e!

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    That's a good question. Larger areas like Jacksonville, Daytona and Miami have the larger concentration of beach goers. They probably have more hunters too. I'm on the east coast and don't like getting tossed around with the typical wave activity. The west coast, gulf coast doesn't churn up as much. If I was coming from MO, I think I'd go to the west coast, panhandle, or down around Tampa, south to Naples and maybe check out some of the resort areas. On the other hand if you want a chance at Spanish treasure, east coast from Sebastion Inlet south. It also gets worked over pretty good. But it's sort of like the lottery down there, if you don't buy a ticket, you definitely won't win. If you do head over to the treasure beaches on the east coast, be sure to check out the local, state and fed installation rules in that area. I've never been down there, but I have read that you have to be careful not to break a rule, shipwreck lease buffer zone, etc.

    If you do pick the west (gulf) coast, some areas in the big bend are salt marsh and creeks and very little beach for MDing. But there is plenty of beautiful white beach to choose from Pensacola to Naples. And usually alot less wave action to knock you around in the water. Good luck and hope you have a safe and treasure filled trip.

    I guess I didn't read your post close enough. Just the Panhandle only, sorry. My response sort of expanded your trip :-)

    Go onto Google Earth and zoom in at the beaches. Look for places with lots of houses/ hotels on the beaches and beach access areas for swimming areas and there's where you will have a pretty good chance. Places where there is a lot of beach go'ers and activity. It's loaded from Pensacola to Panama City. You'll have plenty to choose from. Google Earth is your friend if you are a metal detectorist.

    Lady,

    Good tip bout google earth and zoomin in, thanks! Another idea I had was to locate 5-star hotels or high end resorts located at waters edge, park adjacent to, and work from there,

    kinigit, yep, i worked my brain for 32 years since college! So you live and gainesville and have a beach hunter ID. Closest I've been to gainsville is Daytona Beach. Daytona Beach was cool to detect, the sands go out and out and out! Plus ya can drive on the sand! I owned a beach hunter ID and it was a good machine, you'll do good with it!

    Hey guys I have 20 acres north of the beach in Panama City area. Any treasure hunters are welcome to come search my land metal detectors anything needed. Ponce De Leon searched these lands for the fountain of youth we have vortex springs and Pitt springs closest to many and many other natural springs like it. My road was built in 1978 first people live on it officially in 1954 my land it's self was unsettled until I built home on it I have this gut feeling it holds something whether there's a streak of gold in the layers under or lost antiques there was a civil war battle near here I border the ECOFINA water management area on singer road if you want a birds eye google those places and history here. Anyone who is experienced can run over the land dig whatever. Even drill for scale or natural gas

Size:  11.6 KB I'm in the count down now...40 days..And I like the card. For Gold I would suggest the states around you, may have a better chance of gold there. Many swimming holes and local dunks can be productive, One treasure hunter near you kills the gold....GoldinWater....think he had like 80 this year...From waching him over the years and tracking him, I see his big secret is research.....Congrads again on the retirement, waking up feeling great is what it's all about..and you've earned it......

    That's a heck of a ride on a HD too, it would take me a day or two to recop from the ride.
