    Cool Any tips or suggestions on flordia beach hunting?

    I'm headed to Bradenton Floridia in a couple weeks to meet some family. I was please to see a couple public beaches along the coast. I've never worked the Flordia coast. Any tips or suggestions from all you 'old timers' would be greatly appreciated!

    Lots of sunscreen!

    What detector you using, what kind of hunting are you doing, dry sand, wet sand, in the water?

    Get a MD that can handle wet sand. Need a beach scoop. Hit it 2 hours b4 low tide. Look for low points in the sand. Dig everything.

    Take a fishing pole, some great fishing, when you get sick of fishing, go MDing, and no worries, when MDing gets old, you can always go fishing.

That is only on treasure lease sites. On the East coast. I live in Bradenton. What detector will you be using? I can give you a list of places. Depending on the machine. Water the other day was 68 degrees. And fairly clear. But we are getting a mild cold front tonight.

    One more thing, be pretty cool if you took a few trash bags too. Just saying, nothing wrong with leaving places better off than they where.

    How can someone resist being that close to 10 sunk Spanish galleons and not want to give it a shot?

    Many have tried and gotten arrested - fined and equipment taken - there are eyes all over
    guys have gone out disguised as fishing boat - with lines in the water etc and had guys slip over the side and got caught
    others just walk in waist deep and locals and life guards will call the dogs on you

    Gold is where you find it right now. Winds have things moving..... water is cool enough you dont want to spend hours in it without a suit. Dry sand...... at least we have a lot more people than weve been having.
