Being cheap, I built a homemade beach fishing cart, I looked for ideas for beach carts with big wheels for sand, did not find anything really inexpensive, and settled on converting a kid's big wheel in my surf fishing cart. Works great! "As Built" parts below:
10 ft of 1-1/4 PVC pipe
2 elbows - 45 degree
2 T connectors
3 Cross Ts (use 1 cross T and 2 T connectors to save $)
1 elbow - 90 degree
1 end cap
2 stainless steel bolts and nuts (6 inch for this size big wheel)
Small scrap wood/plywood
4 self-tapping screws to attach the plywood to the seat
1 long screw to connect the front to the back if you want to break it down for storage
2 small bolts/nuts to reconnect the cut off seat
Existing tackle box (I use a cheap Harbor Freight toolbox)
I used my Hobie KC welder to do the plastic welding - http://amzn.to/2gH9Mam

It goes without saying that fishing is dangerous as a result of the fast water, slick rocks and other hazards that occur in random, unexpected places. You need to exercise caution, particularly in the spring when the water is high or during rapid changes in tide before you fish anywhere. You should always wear a life vest when fishing. Also, a wading staff will help you keep your balance as you walk on the shoreline or wade.
