I've not been down there for a few years but you could try stopping at Penryhn Bay on one of your crabbing trips. The beach was covered in big mussels

The block on Formby beach offers very easy pickings and a some very good sized ones too. I took a bucket home one year...the walk back with such a weight isn't so fun though!
