3/24/17 Report - Treasure Coast Beach Metal Detecting Conditions Update

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of

Wabasso Beach This Morning.
Not cuts here.

Looking North From Seagrape Trail Access This Morning

No cuts here either.

Looking South From Turtle Trail Access

No cuts here either.  The bags were deeply buried and the dip that was down by the second flag pole a few days ago was now gone.

As you can see, there was seaweed at all of these beaches.

Rough Surf Breaking In Front of John Brooks Beach This Morning.

One to Two Foot Cut at  John Brooks Beach This Morning.

The slope was fairly steep and also mushy.

The beach here has been cutting every time a front comes through and then filling again as soon as the wind shifts.  Any opportunities have been short-lived.

John Brooks Beach This Morning.

You can see from the above photo that the high tide came up over the cut and washed back on the beach a little ways.

Conditions might have been a touch better before that happened.

Although John Brooks beach was cut, detecting conditions weren't very good.  I'm keeping my beach conditions rating as a 1 (poor).

At this point, I'm not expecting much.  The waves are hitting straight on.

Overall the bigger surf didn't do much for us because of the direction of the wind.  Back when I saw this coming in the predictions, I said that the best chance might actually be during the smaller surf.  It appears that my guess wasn't far off.

You can probably find some better hunting at places where there are obstacles such as rocks or sea walls.

You'll have to hunt them out.

That's all for now.

Happy hunting,
