We are in November and thoughts are turning to our end of year holiday which involves caravanning, fishing, boating, family, friends, good food and good times. So the preparation starts now. One of the jobs on the list is to get bait for all the whiting (amongst other fish) we hope to catch, and they love cockles. So now with cockle season open, as of the 1st of November, we headed down to Goolwa Beach on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia.
The season is open for collecting cockles at Goolwa Beach and whether you cook with them or use them for bait, it’s a heap of fun collecting your own. Cockle season starts from the 1st of November and goes through until the 31st of May each year. You can dig them out of the sand anywhere along the beach, parking in the beach carpark or at any number of places along this stretch of coast, then head down to the waterline with a bucket and a measure and you’re on your way. But for an even better experience you can’t beat jumping in the 4wd for a trek along the beach, finding a patch of sand all to yourself.
