    Hey everyone. It's been about 6 months since I got on here. Thought I'd try this again. Anyone in the Houston area that goes on weekend trips for panning or using a metal detector? I'm hoping to start a new job soon that will give more funds for weekend trips. I have been to a couple of beaches with my metal detector and found only trash. 

    My wife and I are just looking for somewhere to go with people and have a good time.

    Have you been to Corpus Christi/Port Aransas area for metal detecting?
    How about "The Slab" in Kingsland on the Llano river for prospecting?
    Check the Round Rock GPAA website for directions to the next meeting in December.

    We're game. What do you have in mind?

    I've wanted to do a Llano trip since I found out about them. Time was never on our side for that one.

    I've been to Freeport, Matagorda and Aransas Pass with the detector. Bunch of cans, bottle caps and a few nuts and bolts.

    If I remember correctly. South Padre Island the week after spring break is probably a good place to run a detector for lost treasures.

    Any beach after Spring Break is good! I find a lot of quarters in Port Aransas near the pier and the volley ball courts. Areas in front of condos and apartments are generally good too. You will need a good salt water machine to get at the gold and silver rings and jewelry in the surf. That's where the real finds are at on any beach. Keep in mind that while Spring Break is good the Mexicans from Northern Mexico in the Nuevo Laredo area vacation in Corpus and Port Aransas the week after Easter. I personally prefer South Padre but since I do not have a salt water machine I can find a lot in Corpus and Port Aransas without the long drive to South Padre.
