    I got snuba, now where to hunt? Tips for reading the beach?

    I have a snuba rig now and I'm trying to learn how to read the beach and currents to best determine the best locations to hunt.
    Anyone have any tips?
    Cheers

    Find a beach that drops off rapidly. The Sarasota beaches are so shallow that you can wade out a LONG way.

    We have both drop-off and wade out beaches. have found stuff in both...

    drop-off stuff tends to be at the bottom of the drop, and wade out beaches attract plenty of people who stand, drink, chat, lose jewelry.....

    Happy Hunting!!
    It's OK to be disappointed AFTER you dug it - as long as you never forget; that BEFORE you dug it, it had the POTENTIAL to be life changing!

    Yes, but you don't need the diving gear for the shallow wading beaches.

    Walking the beach Can you spot where there were rip currents? If so stand there and look to see where there are sudden rising waves farthest from the beach. Go just beyond.

    Longshore drift, undertow and rips will deposit heavies in confined areas. When you get to the spot look for other debris such as shells.

    I havent found reading a beach to do me any good. KNOWING a beach seems a little better because there are areas that consistently produce. But unless i have very little time to hunt..... i hunt as much of the water as i can that day and most of the time find the gold where i least expect it. Dont get into a routine of just hunting deep water or shallow water or even just run a line.... change it up grid an area or hunt an area you normally wouldnt. Sarasota may have shallow water..... but there is a good bit of difference where you can an cant go during the summer vs winter months out there.... and there is a LOT of swimmers out deeper.
    Whatever you do in life, surround yourself with smart people who'll argue with you.... John Wooden.
