    Actually you can use a flashlight....it has to use red bulbs.....and a regular light can’t be used on the beach, which the wet sand is not a part of. It’s battening down the hatches for me and hopefully electric stays on and no damage. I’ll settle for left overs after the storm.

    If you get down to the beach soon after the storm passes make sure to take extra caution. It won't be like your normal beach conditions. The last time I hunted after a hurricane huge waves would come out of nowhere and can absolutely take you back out with them and the current was ripping. While hunting about 10 feet from the water line I looked up to see the surf climbing and I retreated immediately and still was knee deep before I got away. It was a lot scarier than it sounds and also there were huge timbers (I think from docks or piers maybe)and tree parts it the surf that you can not see. Just use caution and common sense and do not enter or even get too close to the water then you will be fine. Most of the good finds were coming from where the dunes eroded away but like everyone else said don't get too close because that's what can get you in trouble with the law. Good luck....

    Thanks for the sound advice. Didn’t even think of debris in the surf.

    Beach erosion

    Anyone have an idea when there would be enough erosion to make it worthwhile to hit the treasure beaches

    After the storm passes if you can find a way to get on the island then it would be the best time but most the time only locals can get on there I only live an hour south and itís hard for me to get on there usually up to two weeks afterwards but if this storm stays off the coast enough without much damage to the islands it would be easier to get on there

    I don't know about this going very far around here. That's when the go pro gets turned on and let them talk themselves into a hole. I have deepest respects for law enforcement but will take no s%&T from one when he's wrong..and that is wrong if it's a public beach.

    I got to say the report I I read on the home page about this storm being a bust for metal detecting was a bit disappointing. I have surfed that coast for the last 35 years and have talked to my friends over there right now and seen lots of pictures. There is some major sand erosion along the entire coast. It may be starting to calm down now but now to the time to be on the beach hunting. It kind of seems like it was very down played in the report. At least with surfers when the surf is good you can rely on reports to be accurate telling you the conditions but it seems like your saying no need to wast your time and money coming here to look for anything , the beach was in no way eroded.
    I always thought I could come to this site and find out what the current conditions for metal detecting the 1715's was, Kind of like checking the surf report.
    Your telling me the beaches were not effected at all by the storm? No beach erosion worth mentioning? No different than it was 2 weeks ago? The King tide alone much less Dorian would make this a better chance to find a cob then there has been in months.
    Why?? aren't we all in this together?

    Ya, any outer island will be blocked but beaches on the mainland will be open. They said on the news tonight Vero beach was getting hammered.
