Nothing better than a fresh-cooked fish straight from the water and still flipping when tossed on the grill!
A couple of my favorite edible wild plants are Purslane and Sow Thistle. Both are delicious. Purslane has an interesting habit of tasting tart and tangy in the early morning, and then the flavor changes to a more spinach-y flavor. Sow thistle is great fresh in a salad! Just catch yourself a fish, gather some of these plants, and you've got a great REALLY healthy meal.
Since I do most of my fishing around the beach, there are usually BBQ pits for me to cook my fish on. usually there is a group of people nice enough to allow you to cook your fish.

I just moved to Savannah GA and live less than a mile from a fishing pier. I got myt fishing license a month ago and since then almost everyday I have gone fishing or crabbing with great success and the meals are to die for. So far we've(me and my gf) caught Whiting, Trout, Croakers, Spots and Bluefish. There are many other fish out there as well these are just the ones we've caught so far. She bakes them in foil with salt pepper and lemon(sometimes with a little soy sauce). The other day we made fish tacos and with tsmall pieces left over I made ceviche which is a Peruvian dish that is basically raw but marinated in lime juice and hot peppers which cures the meat(very tasty). Blue crab are also very easy to catch here we buy ring baskets from walmart for $2 and tie chicken necks on them and catch 2-4 everytime we go out. They are savory and sweet at the same time we boil them in old bay onions pepper garlic and salt. The other day we went out after tropical storm bethel and caught 14 crabs in 2 hours. We both love catching our own food. We also will collect periwinkles(small snails) which are very tasty and healthy. I like to cook mine in white wine with spicy Italian sausage and she likes them boiled and dips them in butter. All of this is readily available. We moved down from Raleigh NC for work and we are definitely sold on the salt life. If there are any hunters in my area I would love to meet up. I know wild boar are very prevalent here as well as deer and I will definitely be trying my hand in some hunting this coming season. Also if you are a fisherman or a local in Savannah hit me up we are new to the area and are looking for friends and contacts.
I wish I lived near you, that sounds like my absolute dream. May go fish this weekend if I can get my license, cant wait! Saw a beaver today, thought about throwing it on the propane stove if I had it on me
