Sometimes when I'm in vacation near the cost I like to go fishing for shells like clams, cockles or mussels, it's always fun and this is so good to eat what you just take hours to collect. Sometimes, it takes a complete tide so approximatively 6 hours to only get enough seafood to make a decent first course. In this video you'll see that you can easily make the main course for all the holidays within 15 minutes ! This video was captured on June 26, 2012. It's on Topsail Island in North Carolina. The cameraman went down to the beach at 9:30AM when the tide was rising, it's always the best moment to catch clams or cockles. They all came up from the sand at the limit between the sand and the water.
