Move it, or lose it

A good tip for people who hunt the same beaches on a regular basis is to move large ferrous objects around.  
I hunt a few beaches that have large ferrous objects on the lower beach and in the shallows, I have found more than a few pieces of gold and silver jewelry by moving large ferrous objects to one side. 
Enterprising beach and shallow water hunters who search on tourist beaches should keep a metal note of where large ferrous objects are located on the lower beach and in the shallows. 
You can use these underwater or lower beach obstructions as jewelry traps. 
Move iron pipes or rebar out of the way,  metal detect the area and reposition the ferrous obstructions back in the same place. 
Most beach and shallow water hunters will move along quickly when they receive an overload signal or an extended null in their threshold. 
Imagine how much gold and silver jewelry is lost close to large ferrous obstructions on the lower beach waiting for a treasure hunter that knows how to think outside the box. 
If you have several movable ferrous obstructions on your regular beach rotation, you have a group of jewelry traps to search. 
Iron masking is a jewelry hunters worst enemy, but you can use iron masking to your advantage on certain beaches. 
This expensive chunk of 18K gold, platinum and diamonds was found using the same technique described in todays blog. 

I recovering several nice pieces of gold and old silver coins in the same area, it was tough work moving the old ferrous railing to one side, but well worth the extra effort as you can see by the large ladies bling ring recovered.
