    Myrtle Beach in June what am I getting in to ? Usually stay at less crowded beaches

    Planning a trip to Myrtle Beach in June , staying near 19th Ave. South .
    I detected Emerald Isle last year and had a ball . Found 2 gold rings , 1 silver and one S.S ring . Would have liked to have went back to Emerald but it looks like its Myrtle.
    I am going to plan what week I am going with whatever works out best with low tide .
    Myrtle is going to be a completely different animal than what I'm used to (crowds).

    When do the crowds thin out so it's not to bad to detect in the evenings ? I don't particularly like having to dodge large crowds .
    Is it fairly safe to be detecting late at night or do I need to put a new sharp "edge " on my sand scoop ? Any suggestions / hints are appreciated .
    I ordered the book Gold Beneath the Waves and am anxious to read it .

    Thanks

    I went last july near that area. I don't think I would feel safe out at midnight.
    but crowds weren't really a problem either.
    I stay in the water though

    Did you have any trouble with anyone while you were out at night ? My son will want to go with me , just trying to get a feeling how it is after dark . Drunks , homeless etc ? The beaches I have been to in the past were pretty safe to be out with your kids late at night .

    I've hunted Myrtle for last 8 years or so on vacation there 1 to 2 weeks a year. I go out at each low tide. If its in the daytime prime beach hours 9-5 I stay out in the surf in a spot without so many people. I also hunt the late night/ early morning low tides. I will admit, the last couple of years I have felt less "safe" out at 3 am there than I used too. A little rougher crowd out than there used to be BUT there usually is enough other folks out so its not a problem. Now if I'm going down the beach at the wee hours of the morning and I see a group of 3-7+ teen-20 something boys I will turn around and go the other way. Am I "scared"? Not really but I don't want any "trouble" and I am toting around $1000 or more of machine and "potential" valuables. I would hate to have to defend myself and have all that legal trouble that would come with it. I have a carry permit now and SC is a reciprocating state to my permit so I will have a little more "security" with me for those wee hours hunts. Hate that its come to that but people are much more likely to just try to take your stuff and your life is no barrier to most of them. I still will turn around as I don't want the trouble that comes with defending myself but I will do it if necessary, expect the snide remarks and things that come Crome the punks out late at night, but I ignore that and go on my way. Good luck to you and as I say, you should be ok but just be aware of your surroundings and don't let yourself get isolated with a group like that.

    Down by the skywheel I saw a sign that said no firearms on the beach.
    might want to check if your going to carry on the beach....
