Fishing on foot during the high tides

Hotel & Restaurant des Bains
For many, fishing on foot is a real passion to share with the whole family.

It is a time of escape, when you have to keep your eyes wide open, lift stones, or dig in the sand to find the well iodized shells to enjoy.

First, take note of the next dates of the high tides.

You will find on this link the dates of high tides.
This way you will be able to take full advantage of the sea territories:
Oysters, mussels, clams, knife feet, periwinkles...
There are techniques and tips to know in order to fill your shopping cart.
For example, when there are storms, clams rise to the surface.

How to get equipped for fishing on foot?

- Make sure you have good boots
- A bucket or basket
- A small ruler to measure shellfish
- A hand knife
- From a clam knife
- Of a trident
- Of an unracked rake

Some rules to follow
