Finding gold and silver jewelry on a regular basis is easier when you have a local beach hunting plan, and you stick with it.
Many people follow the pack to well known beaches, hoping to just get lucky and stumble across a piece of gold or silver jewelry.
Relying on luck over beach reading and metal detecting skills is a poor treasure hunting plan.
Here is a good four word treasure hunting plan that works well for me, think small and local.
Forget about traveling long distances to sexy over hunted beaches, you will find more gold on less hunted beaches.
You can also search several smaller local sites and often be one of the only people searching those small local sites.
Well known beaches are heavily hunted because they are just that, well known.
There are only so many fresh drops to go around, hurting your chances even more if you are relying on luck at heavily hunted beaches.
I would rather search smaller sites, find more gold, and see less people with metal detectors.
If you follow my blog you will occasionally see me posting a handful of silver and junk jewelry finds, along with gold jewelry.
Here are some of my gold, silver and junk jewelry finds from this weekend, a 3 hour wet sand and water hunt using my Minelab Excalibur II at a small local beach.
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that I am not going to find a handful of jewelry going to beaches that are heavily hunted on a daily basis.
Try to resist the temptation to follow the detecting crowd to the same beaches, you may be surprised how much gold you can find when ugly beach hunting.
