Metal detecting has picked up in popularity along with Kayak fishing and pier fishing on the Coast of Mississippi. Many days I watch at least two or three individuals searching for lost treasure on the beaches along the Beach Rd.
Metal Detecting in Mississippi has become high tech.
I spent a few hours with Dewayne M. from Hancock County while he was searching for lost treasures. His metal detector was an average model but could tell the difference between gold, silver, jewelry, a quarter, a nickel, an aluminum can and even a dime. This allowed him to focus his search. Although he only found some items destroyed in Katrina during his dig with me. A later conversation with Dewayne confirmed that he had found two pieces of jewelry on the beach. Although none of it was very valuable, he finds great excitement searching for buried treasure along the Coast of Mississippi with his metal detector.
A few pointers for using a metal detector along the beach areas. You will need a few items to make your day enjoyable. Here is a list of items that can help you have a great day metal detecting along the beaches.
Small Garden Shovel
Pair of Pliers
Bottle of Water
Ziploc Bag for Treasure

After every storm lots of debris is washed up on the beach. Hurricane Isaac was no exception.
Don’t worry because it won’t be long until they have all this mess is cleaned up. Then it is back to normal along coastal Mississippi. The beach and road cleanup crews have been through this before and are experts at the task. The beaches in Waveland are now cloased till the mess is cleaned up. National Guard and Waveland Police Departments will be patrolling the entraces to Beach Blvd.
