    Brevard County Florida ...Best spots???

    My name is Dustin, I am fairly new to detecting. I have recently got more serious about it. I have been reading many books and scouring the net when I thankfully found this sight. I have read of many places to hunt, but I was looking for some REAL life expierience. I was also looking to make some new friends and to improve my knowledge of hunting. I live in Palm Bay. Thanks

    Welcome! A tip for you would be to check the Archives in your area for some spots to check out. HH

    Thank You to all that have replied. I checked out the Mel Fisher museum and picked up a book entitled shipwrecks near Wabasso beach. It is a great book. I was wondering what any of you other locals have found in the past. I have MD'd south Melbourne beach a couple of times with no results at all, allthough I must say I did not dedicate the time required. I guess it was because I had not heard of any hard evidence of finds in that area.

    Duston, scroll down to the "Shipwrecks", "Beach and Shallow water" and "Wreckdiver under personal forums", and look around, I think you are about to experience a treasure trove of information that will cause the fever to take you. You are closer than you think to big time treasure, some people save money all year just to hunt near your location for a couple of days each year. Remember that the largest beach find in history (350,000 Spanish Pieces of Eight), were recovered just a few miles down the beach from you.

    Dustin:
    A number of years ago, I wrote a book titled: Where to metal detect in Central Florida. Its still available from Kellyco Metal Detectors in Winter Springs, FL for $10.00. Brevard county has other sites other than Spanish Gold. Thought you'd want to know. Also check out www.treasuresites.com.

    Harry Rainey Jr.
    9 books authored: Forts, Camps & Batteries of Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania next to be released, Ohio rereleased April and Virginia, New, released in April. Next book series will be North & South Carolina.

    Where to Metal Detect in Central Florida and South Florida. All books formerly available at Kellyco are out of print. They will be available as they are redone and made available on Victoria Rhine Facebook page. Watch that for the releases. Currently working on researching Kentucky. Thank you.

    Dustin, I moved from Palm Bay 20 years ago here to North Carolina, My mother still lives there. One area that is off limits is Palm Bay City Parks, sadly been that way since 1986. The upside is that Brevard County otherwise has lots of beach area, as well as other places. There is a very active club I believe in the Sebastian- Vero area, that used to have a big annual hunt in grant. Welcome to a great forum and If I can help you shoot me an IM

    The secret is to hit the beach at low tide or just after a storm.
    Tide charts are available on the web.
    Good luck.
    To protect our hobby, always fill the holes you dig.
