Salty 500 Contest, Sponsored by Costa Sunglasses.

Hittin Jackpot with my Costa Joses

I was very happy that early on Costa del Mar sunglasses saw something about this blog and hooked me up with the review pair of Costa Jose’s that I’m wearing in the picture.  I love these glasses, and wrote this review.

If you’ve been reading the blog and following my tweets, you know there have been sporadic reports of yellowtail and white seabass sprinkled into the steady diet of rockfish.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love rockfish.  But just like you can’t have bacon with everything (ok, maybe that’s a bad example), I’m ready for something new.

So what’s this contest you speak of Salty?

Here’s the deal.  I have this gut feeling that things are about to change for the better on the fishing front.  So you guys need to be prepared.  I will not be without my Costa’s on the water.  You won’t find a classier way to protect your eyes in the especially harsh conditions that being out on the water presents.  I want you to experience them and be ready for the awesome fishing here in So Cal (or wherever you may be).

Costa gave me a promo code to redeem any pair of their glasses online.  I’ll provide the winner of this contest the code and the secret website.  You get to pick out any pair of sweet Costa shades.  You don’t even have to pay for shipping!

All you need to do to enter is follow @socalsalty on Twitter and then tweet out a message to me and @costasunglasses with the hashtag #salty500 in the message.  Example, “@socalsalty I want some @costasunglasses! #salty500” (only 51 characters).

Once I hit 500 followers or the end of May (whichever comes first), the contest will end and a winner will be drawn from the entrants.  You must be a follower at the time of the drawing to be eligible.  Good luck!



  1. I am following you and have tweeted you using the hashtag, but because you are not following me back…it’s not showing up and my tweet isn’t counting. HELP! @ShannonStinson

    • That’s weird, I did a hashtag search and you’re not there, but I see it in your stream. Maybe something to do with your tweets being protected? Anyway, you’re in Shannon. Thank you!
