Looking to get serious with this hobby after farting around off and on for years. Purchased a Garrett AT Max and accessories , kinda looking to apprentice from someone who knows the ropes.

I’m a little South if you, down in Punta Gorda. I’m all about meeting others and getting together and seeing what we can unearth. Same goes for me, if you wanna get together and do some digging, PM me.

Beaches are REALLY bad right now with red tide. I am kinda trying to research the area a little and finding places to search. My main issue right now is my AT Max it is tuff getting familiar with its tones and settings, been watching youtube and burying things in my yard to learn. I am still a working man so weekends are my only time to hunt and some weekends the wife has plans for me, so my hunting opportunities will vary. I am definitely game for hooking up with someone who has a passion for the same hobby. There are a few clubs up in Tampa area but logistics pose a problem. My skill and confidence is pitiful with this machine at the moment so am really educating myself, I will try and get in touch with you guys soon, got a couple accessories I need to still get like a beach scoop etc.
