Best place to look for shells-Caladesi or Shell Island?

We will be staying in Clearwater Beach and my daughter would LOVE to look for some shells. I am trying to decide between Caladesi Island or Shell Island (around St. Pete beach). Any suggestions for which would be better? We will be going in about 10 days. Thanks!

I haven't been to shell island, but have had some pretty good luck on Caladesi. Also, when on Clearwater Beach. If you want to look for shells when you are not driving to Shell or Caladesi, may want to walk as far north as you can on the beach. The crowd thins out up there as it turns from the touristy area, to mainly residential. May have better luck finding shells up there where it is usually not as picked over by others.
