I drag my longhandled scoop behind me also...I can always tell where I've already searched and it saves time that you'd spend accidently going over sand you've already searched. Great Wise Pray

THE BEST TIP YOU'LL EVER GET...........DON'T PLAY WITH YOUR FINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ok,confession time and you'll get it.last year i'm in the water a nd get a big ping,scoop it up and there she is,a beautiful gold ring with diamonds(and i mean alot of diamonds,WOOPEE FREAKING DOO!!!!!!!my best by far,so what do i do?normally i put rings on a belt clip(the spring loaded kind) and never touch it,for some reason i decide to put it in my plastic credit card holder(the kind you wear around your neck)well every once and awhile i just had to look and touch my precious.when i got back to my truck my precious was gone!searched all over,went back a few times and never found her but did manage a $700 titanium ring from the same lake. even if i went out and found the lost ships from the 1715,i'll still think about the one that got away............................IT HAUNTS ME.for your sake wait till you get home before playing with your finds

Here's  another  great  tip,  if  you  find  something  real  good   put  it  in  your  pouch  and  don't  tell  anybody,  i  Had  a  friend   from  up  north,  found  a  real  nice  ring  and   showed  it  to  one  of  the  people  on  the  beach,  well  what  happened  is  that  person   went  up  and  told  another  person   just  what  the  ring  looked  like  and  that  person    went  down  and  said  it  was  his  wife's  ring   and  describe   the  ring  perfect,  so  he  had  to  give  the  ring  to  him,  if  he  didn't   he  was  going  to  get  a  cop   and  have  him   arrested,  so  here   is  a  good  tip  also.  Harold

Definitely a good tip, that us honest people wouldn't necessarily think of (which is why your friend had to give up the ring).
