Dirt Fishing Ohio - Metal Detecting Videos
Dirt fishing is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get. I guess that's what I love the most about this hobby, the excitement of what I might find next. You don't have to look too hard to find buried treasure, no matter what town you live in.
There are many tools you can use to find historic properties in your area. Driving around asking permission is usually the best method, you'd be surprised how many people are willing to let you dig up their yard if you just ask politely. Real estate websites are a great resource, on Zillow, you can filter properties by the date they were built and then search the curb strips in front of the house. Historic Aerials is a website you can use to print out old aerial photos from different points in time. When using the free version of the site the maps are watermarked but if you sign up for an account you can avoid this. A visit to your local historical society will yield much information and the people who work or volunteer there will be eager to help.
On a good permission, you can find a handful of coins in just a few hours. Doing your research before you head out is what makes the difference. Hunting beaches and playgrounds are great for learning your machine and there is always a chance you find coins and jewelry but if you're ready to do some serious coin shooting you've got to hunt old dirt. A buddy of mine once told me there is more currency in the ground than in circulation. Whether this is true or not I don't know, but it sure does make you think. Just imagine how much change has been dropped by millions of people over hundreds of years and it's just waiting for you, the cool guy with the metal detector, to come and find it. Gets you stoked to go out and do some dirt fishing, doesn't it?
