I think we have about 5 public beach's total, 4 do not allow detecting during the summer. Memorial day to Labor day. The one allows you to inter 6am and hunt till 9am, then the detector has to be turned off and it must be put away, Labor day it goes back to hunt anytime until the following years memorial day. They sure know how to kill metal detecting in this area. We do have Ocean city which is 2 plus hours away, they allow detecting anytime.
