Default Best Beach in Florida?

I am curious what the best beach in Florida is for consistant jewelery finds? I have heard it is the Miami Hollywood area? I have worked Daytona, New Symrna, Cocoa and the Treasure Coast and Cocoa seems to have done the best for me. Looking forward to seeing your opinions

We detected a little at St. Pete beach, and at Juno beach, but by the time we got to Fernandino Beach Alberto was in full force.

I guess you need an answer from someone that lives down there. Right?

Not enough experience to offer my opinion here but I bet ChuckinMiami could shed some light.

I hunt Fort Myers and Bonita Beaches and have had very few finds. There are too many retirees with detectors. I have talked to one of them who lives on the Beach and every Monday morning he spends several hours combing it. By Monday afternoon, everything is picked clean. Everything I have found has been in waist-deep water with a PI, but have found nothing to brag about. Your best bet is to hunt in the water in front of hotels.

I really need to try Miami....

I've only got to New S. Beach, have not found much, but not enought time on the beach to really say. I know a guy here on the fourms that goes about every weekend that could say more for New S. Beach.

I didn't get results like that (photo) in Miami.
Hit around South Beach and got about 20 coins, no jewelry.

Hit the beach near Lake Worth near Lantana and got zilch.
First time I ever came up with zilch.
