Default No Gold Again but the Money is in the Glasses!

I went yesterday on my “Plan B” hunt. “Plan A” was a water hunt on Miami Beach but the surf was transitioning to become rougher and when I woke up it was. Plan B was a wet sand hunt with terribly mistimed tides but it’s all I had to work with. I was on the beach hunting around 6:15am. When I started getting the deeper greenies and sinkers I was hopeful that some yellow might sneak into my hunt but it didn't. Hunted the wet sand for 2 hours and then I just couldn’t work it anymore and did about an hour of dry sand on my way back. It’s then when I eyeballed a set of sunglasses half buried in the sand. Picked them up and took a look and noticed that they were Ray-Ban’s! They are a set of polarized “Justin” models and they are in excellent shape. Then on my way home, I stopped at a beach that I had a cr^ppy short after work hunt on Friday. To top that hunt off, I somehow managed to lose one of my awesome gloves and it had really pissed me off. So I decided to stop in at that beach and right next to where I had parked…voila! - The gloves are now reunited and all is well in the world again!

$6+ and a set of Ray Bans is a good hunt.

Funny how finding one of your own drops can be one of the highlights of a hunt. A nice pair of RayBans makes a decent payday!

Ray Bans are always welcome. Good hunt Felix and you saved a friend even if it was a glove.

I'd say if their in excellent shape like these it should be about 50% of their cost new. Depending on the vendor, these sell for between $80-140.
