Its like a big Oyster apparently...you get them on big tides at low water, only a couple of tides a year you can do it. Its 38ft tmo and have been invited out on a boat across, so going to give it a go.
Looked today, waters bloody freezing, none about where I went though it was fresh turn. Had 2 velvet peelers instead so not a total waste. They are now residing in my tank. Be aware there is a minimum size. 80mm in Guernsey, not sure about Jersey though.
I found 11 in the end. Just about getting some feeling back in the fingers, and waders are now like sieves. In my defence I did have a hefty hangover and did a lot of sitting on rocks. If I went again though I reckon I could double that amount, was getting the hang of it by the end. The Minquiers are stunning.
