Welcome to TQ! I agree with what Buster said - as far as I've seen, you're OK on open beaches...but again, as Buster said - Pris and John are resident experts - and I'm sure they'll jump in here shortly...happy hunting!
Hi,your ok at the ca. beaches ,,long beach,, will rogers st beach,,dockwiler,,
ect ect,,,i belong to the Antelope Valley Treasure Hunters Club, (shamless plug), and we have club outings at alot of the so. cal beaches,,and members are allways there,,but watch the rakes:yikes:
Was camping in an area north of San Francisco.. Asked the Ranger about detecting on the beach.
Her answer was "no problem as long as your not trying to make a living out of it."
Once I was able to get my breath back and wipe the tears from my eyes from laughing so hard, God I love humor like that, I said "No problem, if I had to live off what I found I'd be making tomato soup from hot water and ketchup on a good day.."
Anyway, less Orange County has it's own rules, remember your talking California here, beaches seem good to go.
Good luck in SoCal. I'm not too sure about places to rent equipment. All the beaches are public and no problem to hunt. Even the ones with homes are good, you just might have to walk to them instead of parking real close.
I sure wish you luck and hope you enjoy your stay down here. Sorta cloudy all this week, so I home you come when it's nice and sunny. HH!!
