Look for heavy objects – fishing weights could mean gold on the beach!
You know what it’s like when you’re our beach metal detecting and finding those old fishing weights time after time. It can be a drag and when I first started metal detecting on the beach I used to get frustrated and move on from areas where I kept picking out these fishing weights.
Learn form my mistake a see why finding those heavy fishing weights is a good thing!
You never really know what you are walking over when you’re on the beach in the summer. I often go metal detecting on the beach in the winter, at the same location I take the children during the summer, and I’m always stunned as to what comes out of the sand.
Beach metal detecting can be fun and very lucrative as I have certainly found out over the years. It’s amazing what you can find and you just never know what’s down there. Most of the time it’s trash and modern coins but sometimes you strike it lucky and find some great stuff. The two finds in the videos above where found a few years ago during major storms and really made my day, but I wasn’t prepared for some of the reactions to follow. . . .
It never seems to amaze me as to some of the metal detecting stories and articles you can come across. One of the most recent articles that caught my eye was the German artist that had apparently buried £10.000 worth of small gold bars on a beach in Folestone in Kent, England.
I could not write a blog on metal detecting without having the obligatory article on what is a metal detector. Even though this is basic information it’s useful for those who are new to the metal detecting hobby. The simplest explanation being that a metal detector is an electronic device for locating metal object buried in the ground. A very simple explanation, but correct, none the less correct.
The Ace 150 is not just lightweight and easy to read, it is also an inexpensive metal detector
The Garrett Ace 150 provides useful features for both metal and coin hunting activities. These features include a target ID cursor, a tone ID, a coin depth indicator, an LCD screen, and a headphone jack. The gadget also has shafts that are pushed together by spring clips and while these pieces may seem light, they are also very strong. A good section of buyers who have written a Garrett Ace 150 review especially love the detector for its robustness. It can withstand heavy falls, and will not easily get damaged when accidentally hit against tree stumps or rocks.

Beach metal detecting can be very frustrating but there are times when it can be very rewarding and lucrative. You might have seen my other lucrative finds from the beach but one of my latest finds is one of my best. . . OLD GOLD!
Youtube metal detecting videos can offer some great tips. . .
Beach metal detecting can be a great hobby and sometimes very frustrating to say the least and I am always on the look out to better my chances of finding more great items on the beach. I often find myself looking at the many metal detecting video on Youtube that offer some great entertainment, along with some really good tips and advice (as you can see below)
Do you make money with your beach metal detecting is something I often get asked?
The simple question to this is yes, but there are things you need to consider and take into account and don’t expect to be a millionaire.
Making money with beach metal detecting can be fairly straightforward (at times) if you put in the time, have a decent metal detector that can handle the wet salt sand, and learn to understand the beaches you are going to metal detect on.
