    Looks like boating then?

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    I was at the Treasure Coast yesterday. All along A1A many, if not most of the small access points were locked and some actually had police cars blocking entry. Surfers were parking along the road side and making their way to the beach through heavy thicket!

    We were able to get to Bonsteel and it was a bust. Mushy sand throughout. The expected erosion was just not there. Numerous detectors were there however. Comparing results, only one that I met found anything of note. A small silver Reale about thumbnail size and paper thin.

    Obviously, I couldn’t see the entire Treasure Coast but Dorian did us no great favors where we were and we covered a pretty extensive distance. Other areas may have been better suited for hunting but again, the areas we saw were covered with soft mushy sand and no notable targets other than a few modern coins.

    The most important favor Dorian did for us Florida coast dwellers however was staying so far off our coast and sparing us the damage it could have done. Having gone through my share of hurricanes, I am eternally grateful for such favors! Thank God!

    I wouldn't be too sure about that. Years ago I was detecting up there around Turtle Beach. Was wading in knee deep water. There was a boat over 150 yards out. Next thing I know i got this dingy coming up on me with a couple guys in it. They were pleasant and asked if I had an luck (which I didn't). They then informed me I could not detect in the water.

    That's very unusual. I've hunted Fl beaches since 1983 and lived on Vero beach for a year. The only time anyone said anything was once when I was next to the dune a county guy came over and said to stay off the dunes. I already knew that but he was nice about it.
    Looking for a hunting buddy in or around Deltona Fl.

    does that mean if it is high tide, I can detect in the water to the low tide line
