    I'll Be Taking a Trip to Miami and The Keys In May.. Advice Anyone?

    It's been a long time since I've gone to Florida and even longer to the Keys. The family and I will be there mid May. Probably won't have too much time to detect but my Nox IS a memeber of the family.. lol. I'm not a beach hunter. Only detected the beach 2 times. Any advice from the pros out there is appreciated. I'm not expecting to find gold or pirate treasure. If anyone in the area(s) is willing to meet up send me a message. Glad to finally be swinging again up here. Good luck and happy hunting everyone.

    ooh Fat I never received a class ring. I only wear my wedding ring and first ring I found with a detector. But hey if I find a class ring I'll try to return it.

    I detected Miami beach 2 summers ago, the sand is very clean; but I'm used to detecting RI. and Ma. beaches which are much more of a challenge. Between The Clevelander Hotel and the end of the strip is where massive amounts of people layout on the sand. You may have some luck but this area gets hit hard in the morning, so get out early if you can. If you don't have that much time stay on the soft sand and maybe you'll grab a ring or 2.

    Good luck

    Bring a sand scoop.
    Pinpointer also helps me quickly find targets at the beach, I see some guys spend minutes at a time redigging, kicking around sand ect and I find mine in seconds.

    I reckon you can expect alot of competition and alot of trash, so be prepared for both [of course, good form to take trash with you and dispose of properly] Can add up quick so be prepared with a pouch or something, if you only have Speedos on you'll be at a disadvantage.

    If you need to earn some brownie points with the family while down there, stop at "Robbie's" and feed the tarpon. Y'all will have a fun time. It's at 77522 Overseas Hwy on Islamorada.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    5 or 6 years ago took that same drive - had to pick-up my newly modded Excal from Kellyco (I'm a 40 year fan of them, got my first detector from them). Met a few friends there, and then went over to the West Coast to meet another friend, then drove back home to Virginia.

    That was a great adventure I will never forget! Sure was a long drive though

    I did hit the water on both coasts

    Florida has beaches and they are the spots to go to to find rings and jewelry you will like it
