Sure :

1) Don't by Rolex watches from strange men standing on street corners wearing trench coats.

2) Don't bet on race horses.

3) Don't stick your fingers in light sockets.

Any other questions ?

Good location - bad time - go in the late afternoon/early evening when the beach is starting to clear out. Getting up early means you'll compete with everyone else that brought their machine hoping something is still there....

Don't worry about being "embarrassed" since no one knows you - you'll be shocked by the number of people that ask if you had any luck.....

If you go out early in the morning, you'll be competing with the other tourists and locals that hunt.

If you go out in the evening when they put away the chairs, you'll be competing with the other tourists and locals that hunt.

If you go in the water, you'll be competing with the other tourists and locals that hunt.

If you go when its day or night out, you'll be competing with the other tourists and locals that hunt.

Do you see any trends? LOL. It's a nice beach, it's in Florida, and there is competition 24/7, 365.
