Metal detecting in the winter
It’s been a while since I have updated my metal detecting blog. I have been busy with my Minelab Excalibur and I must tell you it has more than paid for itself this summer but now that summer is over, it’s time to start hunting the winter spots.
I only metal detect on or near the beach and the beaches lately have been sanded in. There is a ton of sand on the beaches and it has covered everything up.
In the fall and winter beach hunters wait patiently for cold fronts to move through and create some northeast winds and large waves. If they come in the right combination, it will remove quite a bit of sand and expose some silver, gold and other goodies.
There have been a few already and some amazing finds came from them. I found a nice area the other day that was loaded with older coins and a few pieces of silver jewelry. I will post some of those in the next day or so. In the meantime, the seas are calm and the tides are extremely low. This creates a good chance of getting a little further out there with your metal detector. Have fun hunting!
