    Have you found anything and what locations have you tried? Im taking mine to roataan in Few. Hope to find something there. Not sure where to look though. Big ocean :wink:
    Was thinking of looking around the reefs, stuff gets pushed toward them i think depending on current. Or around the wrecks but im sure anything worth finding has been found already. Oh well, its the possibilities that are exciting :)

    Hi ted
    I disagree with anything worth finding is already gone , as far as places to look you mentioned the most obvious ,one more to check is if you are on sandy bottom and every so often you see all the small pebles grouped togeather check there the sea grades things by weight , so light sand with light sand and eventualy rings with small stones ,

    Thanks Zerovis. never thought of that, very good advice. I will definately look for stuff like that when I do some shore dives. Any other advice you can offer would be great.
