I have read where people make their own fish food. Buy scallops, frozen shrimp and a bunch o stiff then throw it all in a food processor.
Don't see why you couldn't use live stuff from your beach.
CAUTION THO. Any contaminates from the shore including effluent, red tide and fertilizer from the shore would end up in those and could harm the fish. But if you live in a clean area with less population.
