What are bivalves?
The teeth of the sea bream are very powerful and its molars can crush any bait, no matter how hard it is, bivalves are one of them. I describe to you the most used for its fishing.
1-Mytilus galloprovincialis, mussel, clóchina, is an easy bait to obtain, it is sold in fishmongers, although I prefer to make it, that bait that they sell has passed at least two weeks in purifiers and that alters its properties. Of the four modalities that can be used, “plateret” in “baulet” in “ataud” and “criansó” (mussel breeding) requires a different hooking for each one of them and a specific tutorial that I will publish.
2- Abra tenuis, pechina, bonbon, it is a difficult bait to obtain, I order it from a professional tellinero on foot that is those that usually take them out, it does not have much commercial value and you can keep it, it is a very fragile and brittle beach clam, to hook it requires a special technique, in a bucket with seawater, when it opens a little the valves to breathe to insert the hook, she alone when noticing it closes them and presses holding the hook, the sea bream takes it with greediness, I have been able to verify as in an area in which there were many fishermen fishing to sliding buoy with criansó as another fisherman has arrived fished and baiting with that type of bait and all the sea bream of the area have been for him.
3- Ensis ensis, razorfish, is an easy bait to obtain, it is sold in fishmongers, but it has the same problem, it has spent a lot of time in purifiers and that alters its properties, I harvest them in summer in a beach of calm and clear waters I get into the water with water by the waist and a plastic bag with salt, you see the hole where it is lodged, you introduce your hand with a pinch of that salt and you throw it in that hole, they emerge immediately and you can catch them, to hook them open a little introduce in the slot the two-hook rig and then liquefy their whole body.
4- Anatifa anatifera, goat’s foot, false barnacle, you can get them when there is a storm and they come to the beach attached to all kinds of objects, the hooking is easy, insert the hook through the opening they have and then liquefy.

There are a number of different bivalves that can be fished for, but some of the most popular include oysters, clams, and mussels. Each type of bivalve has its own unique benefits and drawbacks when it comes to fishing.

For example, oysters are a popular choice because they are easy to catch and they have a high flesh-to-shell ratio. However, they also tend to spoil quickly once they are out of the water. Clams are another good option because they are abundant in many coastal areas and they keep well once they have been killed. Mussels, on the other hand, have a strong flavor that not everyone enjoys and they can be difficult to clean.

There are a few different types of bivalves that can be used for fishing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Here is a quick overview of some of the more popular options:

  • Clams – Clams are a good choice for fishing because they are very common and can be found in many different habitats. They are also relatively easy to clean and cook. However, they are not particularly large, so you may not get much fish if you only use clams as bait.
  • Mussels – Mussels are another good option for bait, as they are often plentiful and easy to find. They are also fairly easy to clean and prepare. The main downside to using mussels is that they tend to be quite small, so you may not get much fish if you only use them as bait.
  • Worms – Worms are a popular choice for fishing because they are easy to find and usually plentiful. They are also easy to clean and prepare. However, worms can be difficult to keep alive for long periods of time, so you may need to replace them frequently.
  • Maggots – Maggots are often used as bait by fishermen because they are easy to find and usually plentiful. They are also easy to clean and prepare. However, like worms, maggots can be difficult to keep alive for long periods of time, so you may need to replace them frequently.

The bivalves that are best for fishing are found in deeper waters. They usually have a harder shell and are not as easy to chew. These bivalves include mussels, clams, and oysters. These bivalves can be caught by a variety of methods including hand picking, dredging, and trawling.
