Wink It May Be a Child’s…But it Fits!

I was out almost 2 hours before the low tide and didn’t know if I would be able to get in a hunt since it was supposedly windy and rough. I just wanted to get out and de-stress for a bit. I was glad when I got to this particular beach to notice that it’s starting to get some crowds again. I hunted for just over 3 hours splitting near shore and off shore. Almost all the targets were near shore and the nice little gold came in the last hour. It’s not much, but it’s a nice little .8 grs 14K Claddagh ring that helped me avoid the skunk so that was good!
