    West Coast Beaches of Florida

    Hey everyone, we always hear about Florida's east coast/treasure coast beaches. But, does anyone know of treasure being found on any of the gulf beaches from nearby wrecks? I am looking for somewhere to detect and live on the gulf coast.

    From Clearwater to Venice take your pick. Right now St. Pete has jellyfish and bad weather the rest of the week!

    There is plenty of information on the computer if you keep doing your research. There are plenty of wrecks all along the gulf area. There have been lots of hurricanes in the gulf, or even just bad storms that have come ashore and many shipwrecks, just start researching port towns, storms, hurricanes, lost ships etc and one story will lead to other stories. A map of towns on the gulf helps, then look up the history of the town, even old maps are better, and then you will start to find that doors open all over the place. Good Luck. Also be familiar with any laws and claims or you could run into big trouble.

    Well put..
    I am willing to bet ..given some time you would be successful anywhere doing exactly that.
    I know it works for me.
    The biggest issue with the wrecks on the gulf side is they are under tons of sand.
