    Tips for beach hunting?

    I think I just got permission to hunt a really early shipwreck site... it's a bit of a drive but I'll tell ya it's still here in the Great Lakes. Old silver, cannonballs, and other things like that have been found in the general area in the past. At the beaches near where I live (Lake Erie) there's a dry sandy area farther from the water, a pebbly area, and finally as you get into the water, instead of sand or fine pebbles there are cobble-sized stones. Where should I search first? This might be a stupid question but I've never done much beach hunting and I don't know any of the tricks. Is it a wild goose chase? Will big old heavy items just wash out or sink down in the sands? I think jewelry hunting would be simple enough but I'm looking for things that will have been tossed and turned in the sand for a long time. ANY advice for hunting at the beach would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you all in advance! I never cease to be amazed by the knowledge and experience of some of the folks on here.

    I noticed that no one responded. I would try again on the Beach and shallow water board. There is also a board, I think, for shipwrecks.
