Looking good for some beach fishing next week! Higher humidity, and heading towards a Spring tide, perfect.

What do you catch, and more importantly how do you cook it?
My father used to take me beach fishing, and sometimes we lit a small fire and ate there and then.
We're planning on doing some lake fishing when hubby gets here - we are total beginners (a "re-beginner" in my case), but we have all the basic gear and I know how to put it together and use it. I have also researched carp recipes, because that's what we'll be catching!
It depends where I decide to go to, as there's so many types of beaches near me. I like go go spinning, which means putting waders on and getting to dodgy places before low tide. I fish mainly for bass or mullet when I spin. If i'm beach casting, it's usually sandy bottomed water, or shingle - need to stay away from rocks, as it's a sure way to lose tackle. I'll fish for anything if that's what i'm doing, species caught and ate last year were bass, plaice, pollock and flounder. I like to cook it simple, either wrapped up in tin foil with butter, and put it in the oven, or cook them in a frying pan. I did have dogfish a few years ago, it was caught, priested, skinned and put straight on a BBQ - amazing taste! If you go to a restaurant, they'll call it rock salmon and charge you a fortune for it.
