    Florida vacation

    I'm planning on a week vacation in Florida and wondering where I should go for the best beach detecting.
    I was thinking somewhere around the Daytona beach area, but I'm open to suggestions.
    im planning on booking a hotel on the beach so I can just walk out and detect.
    where do you recommend?

    Any Florida beach is good this time of year. The more popular spots such as Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach on the East coast and Clearwater Beach and the Tampa Bay area on the West coast are always good producers, but you will be in competition with the "regulars" who work the beach every day.

    As we say down here, "its a new beach every day", especially if you are working the low tide / shell line.

    Pick the area you and your family want to see and let that be your guide !!

    Good luck, and have a great vacation !!

    P.S. - Florida is the "shark bite capitol of the world". Just wanted you to know that before you waded in too deep !!
