PROVENDER FOR THE TABLE, SURF FISH, CLAMS, MUSSELS, SEAWEED
SALT WATER FISHING can be done by wading out into the surf in summer and casting into seaweed outside of surf line. Standing on rocks isn't always safe. I've done it but the 7th wave can nail you. I've heard of pro rock fishermen killed. Haven't seen it, but read about it in my local newspapers.
Rocks are also great at low tide for MUSSELS, which folks say are delicious if you observe the rule not to eat them in months with no R in them. May to August, you must clean the mussel or clam very well, no intestines, a lot of rinsing, maybe some vinegar soaks.
FIND SOME SEAWEED, Enjoy it in your salad. High minerals, secret of perpeutal youth.
HINTS ON COOKING WITH SEAWEED.
LAST, if you watch the low tide charts in daily newspaper, or online, checking beaches near you, and you see a -2 or -3 tide? Go clamming!
Send the kiddies into a very low tide beach sand area and they can use hands, making lazy circles or use a shovel or rake to extract clams. (Long tine not leaf rake.)
IF YOUR BEACH has shells, that's a clue there will be clams.
