Default Just cleaning up the beaches...

Some typical recent 2-3 hour hunts. I do like finding lures, as I can put them to good use and they are pricey in the tackle shops. Ah yes, a tungsten ring... it does look nice... too bad the metal is worthless. And a little bit of silver, just enough to lure me back to the beaches again and again The search for gold continues!

That looks a lot like my lake hunts here! Got a jar full of lures to rejuvenate some day (put new trebles on them). Congrats on the silver!

I like finding lures too even though since I started detecting fishing took a huge nose dive.

Exclamation Cleaning up the Hazards

Good job, to bad the important people in charge of Federal , State land , beaches never see this , as we help clean public place's free of hazards just about every hunt, notice a lot of No metal detecting signs on park sign's, Federal beaches here ,No metal detecting , i will all way's remember this hunt howboutit , Earl IF they saw this , saving there kid's feet from puncture they would re- think the law's of Metal detecting and find it's not all about us trying to find treasure public service DONE, removing hazard's. Picture's are from a beach hunt on the Treasure Coast Of Florida May 2010- 2013 PS Foiled Again what do you do with your sinker's ? I have a ton ?

I still do a little fishing so any sinkers I find at the beach go into my lead container to be melted down and cast into the size sinkers that I need.

At one time I would melt them and cast them into muzzle loading projectiles.

I think you did well, plus just getting out is good intel on the conditions.

Thanks Mud. I've found pieces of fishing line with large nuts attached as sinkers -- I'm thinking that those heavy tungsten rings would work just as well.

I replace all the treble hooks with singles. I've seen too many folks impaled with one of the extra barbs when trying to remove the hook from a wild and crazy fish flopping around (think bluefish), and I've come close a couple times myself. Thanks GS.

Same problem here. Combo detecting and fishing days are a great solution, if you have the time!

Thanks Earl. Wow, good work on removing those nasty pointed irons from the beach. I find a lot of them too. Mother Nature does a good job of sharpening them in the salt water. I sell sinkers to a tackle shop where they get recycled at a discount price.

Good idea George. Many years ago my dad and I cast hollow points and reloaded for winter jackrabbit hunting. Gave up casting when it became difficult to find antimony to harden the lead.

Thanks OBN. I think it's good to have a reality check once in a while as to what most hunts are like!

Nice finds, looks like a fun hunt. Kind of like that fancy lure with the bling, just a touch of that shiny, and we're all hooked again, haha!

A nice variety of finds there! Went for an hour at the beach yesterday, got 2 bits of foil, 2 bottle caps, 2 coins ($2.05) and a massive sinker.

Silver and a tungsten ring is not bad. Besides you forgot to mention the twist tie.

Thanks KS. This hobby's an addiction for sure, but a good one!

Hey sandgroper, not bad for an hour! Two coins recovered here are more likely to be a dreaded Felix penny and a nickel. We're lucky to find a dollar coin much less 2 AUD.

Thanks Joe. Can you imagine the hundreds of new FF threads a day if we posted all our dud hunts?

Thanks DD. Oh yeah, those twist ties are pretty scarce and thus very special. My bad.

Nice batch of finds! It's mazing what kind of dangerous stuff people leave on the beaches......
