    A friend and I went clamming and had a good day. Lots and lots of shorts before we could fill our limits of 10 a piece. For all those willing to do the work these tasty treats can be had when we get these minus tides. Just make sure they stick in your measuring gauge not just touch. Game Wardens were in the parking lot waiting for clammers. Two of ours were just barely touching and were told that any shorter would have resulted in a $1,300.00 ticket!!
    A family that came up the hill after us got busted with 26 clams with only 4 of legal size and only 1 fishing license between them! I don't think they knew what they were doing, too bad...

    If you do your homework and digging, both figurative and literally you will find them. In general they are found on gentle sloping beaches with clean sand.

    Didn't realize it clamming was such a secretive society. Hahaha.
    Giving specific locations out is foolish.A spot i go to used to be great.Hardly anybody there and a limit was a 15 or 20 minute job.15 years or so later and a lot of people clamming this spot and now you cant even get a limit.

    Sandy beaches. Don't eat any taken near any river or bay as you'll glow the next day. I watched these guys digging up these clams in the channel and they were nasty looking in black mud. Yuck.
