My reading any beach I fished in the UK came from first visualy looking and then snorkelling. Much of this had to be done at times of the year when the water was clear enough and then hitting those spots when not. It was mazing to find just how close many species were that most people cast 50m past!!!..The well known surf beaches I explored from Haverford West down through Newquay had bass in water of around 1ft deep that barely spooked as I would come from the water. The IOW had areas where large pollack were literally 20-30m out, at times closer depending the rocks (St Catherine's). Getting in the water you soon learn regular hangouts and behaviours in places you wouldn't normally fish, also bigger bass tend to be quite curious in approaching you unlike the smaller ones.
