Silver Hake Fishing
Although this rarely occurs nowadays because of their seriously depleted stocks, the normally deep-dwelling silver hake often chased bait-fish in to shore at dusk or at night.
When hungry, it is not unusual for the hungry fish to run right up onto the sand. This happens because the fish is unaccustomed to skinny water.
This most frequently occurs during winter, often enough in the old days that it was given the name “frost fishing“.
As it happens, the frost fish is already frozen solid when found. At this point it is ready for long-term storage.
