10/26/15 Report - Treasure Coast Beach Conditions. Meg Teeth Being Found On N. C. Beaches. Advantages of Team Detecting.

Photo Taken Monday Afternoon.

Here is one beach that I showed a couple of times last week.  The cuts have almost disappeared at this beach.  In some spots there are no cuts, and where the cuts remain, they are only about one third as big as they were early last week.  The front beach is now mushy.

All the beaches that I've seen in the past week have had a pile of sand in front of the beach.  It is at least ten or twenty yards wide and has been protecting the beaches.

The surf is decreasing and will continue to decrease this week.

Another Beach As Seen Monday Afternoon.
The two beaches shown are Douglas and Brooks.  They aren't far apart, but you can see that one still has nice three-foot-plus cuts, and the other looks like it has mostly filled in.

I wanted to show how different these two beaches are, yet they are the same in some ways.  Although the cuts have not filled in on this beach, it has filled a little, and it also has that pile of sand in front of the beach.

The water hasn't hit the cliffs here much since early last week when they were formed.  Although this beach looks better, there are very few good targets.  Many of the good targets were removed days ago, and there is nothing going on to replenish old targets or bring in new ones.

I'm not saying there will be no more cobs found on the Treasure Coast beaches, but they will be much harder to find now than they were a few days ago.  What I saw today made me very confident that my reduced rating of "1" on my beach conditions rating scale is correct.

The surf is down to around 3 - 5 feet today and will slowly be decreasing through the week.

In a day or so the wind will be coming from the south again.  I hope that doesn't last long.  I don't want all of the beaches to get filled completely back in.

It seemed that the low tide was pretty far out today, but that didn't do much good because it only exposed the pile of sand in front of the beach.


Team detecting can be very effective.  By detecting with others you can scan more ground.  As I've shown with some of my polls, the probability of finding a cob once one has already been found.

If you can scan more ground, you have a better chance of finding those good productive spots.  When detecting with others you will also have fun sharing information and talking about your experiences and finds.


Lots of Meg teeth are being found on North Carolina beaches lately.


Happy hunting,
