Default Epic hunt .... low tide, tourist beach, honey hole ... Florida Treasure!

The beach cams showed a lot of action on the beach. Also, low tide was just after sunset, when everyone is packing up to leave. Conditions were perfect!!!



With my NOX optimally tuned, I set forth on the beach. I knew I was off to a good start when a mere 65-minutes into my hunt, I scored my 1st felix!



At the 3-hr mark, I took a break to tally up my loot. $0.12 !!!! O.M.G. This hunt was going to be EPIC!



By midnight, 5-hours later, I was exhausted from all the digging. I couldn’t believe the massive amount of finds in my pouch. 4 bottle caps, a pull tab and a whopping $0.38 !



I know some of you are wondering, how do I do it? How do I make such big scores? Well folks, if you send me $19.95, I will share my techniques and even include the location of this North Florida honey-hole. Don’t delay, act now!

I hear by order you to cease and desist ! Trademark infringement on THE KOB Tours , instructional videos and books.
Also must stop using terminology such as "epic , score , just sayin , etc " without the express written consent of THE KOB !

Ouch, rough. Thought you had some Reales based on the title The swell hasn't really done much for beach productivity, saw some exposed rock on WPLG during Dorian.

My bank says the FDIC issures my account up to $100k. I'm thinking I might be able to squeeze in 2 more, wait 3 more hunts.

Yes, Zinc'olns are highly desired and made by Felix Ltd, in Miami.
Paypal is a strong no unless you send it as Friends & Family.

I did find this a few hunts back. Heart stopper for sure. But timing is everything. Seems the storms have piled more sand instead of cause erosion; however, a couple of hunts i stumbled upon spots where i collected 20-30 greenies. Weird part is the areas werent low or eroded.

I can't believe you cleaned those coins. Pretty much worthless now.
