    Default Razor Clams.......can't beat em!

    Wow......6 day clam dig this week in the Pacific Northwest. Razor clams......um good! Went clamming yesterday and today......had our 15 limit within 10 minutes. Clams were showing everywhere......lots of people out on the beach. Fried clams tonight for dinner. Clam fritters later this week. Lots of chowder this winter. Between elk meat, clams and a little salmon......eating just don't get much better!

    Sounds great. What beach did you go to? Guessing Long Beach. We have a lot of butter clams and other shell fish up the Hood Canal. Good way to live.

    Never acquired the taste for 'em but truly enjoyed the 'hunt'. Family still has a bare camping lot at Ocean Shores.

    After the dig, we use to always set up a cleaning assembly line and clean everybody's limit at one time. Good memories.

    You dig up on the dry or a surf pounder ?

    Jerry, thought about doing it, but still a 100 mile round trip, and no one else to dig with me.

    Never did any clam digging and never seen clam fritters, but I do like fried clams and New England style clam chowder. In fact, I keep a can of Campbell's clam chowder on hand. It's a long ways from being the best, but it's better than nothing.

    Now your Razor Clams may be different to ours - in which case this wont work.

    However, in UK I was watching a guy on TV who went round at low tide looking for the breathing holes. He then pours salt down the hole and they errupt out of the sand - and can be pulled out with no digging. Seemed very easy - more so than digging.

    There's a lunar eclipse tonight, so there should be a good minus tide.

    Hum...not sure they (clams) really do that but I'll take your word for it.
