Clamming / Crabbing

Postby Swamp Puppy » Thu May 19, 2005 4:29 pm

anyone else here take advantage of this opportunity?

my wife and i love to go clamming for Razor Clams down on the coast. it's lots of fun, not expensive to do, and Razors have got to be the best eating clam there is.

we also get Dungeness crabs occasionally. My duck hunting buddy and i will go out for them now and then.

I used to love to go in search of the wiley bearded clam! :laughing: But unfortunately there was always the risk that those clams also came with crabs. :laughing: I found a trophy crabless clam and that has ended the search. And that is a good thing. :salude:
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

we go crabbin all the time, collectivly we got enough pots for everybody or rings, when pots are closed, I've tried blue crab once and didn't realy like it, maybe it was the way it was cooked, I could eat dungenese all day though, favorite :thumbsup:

Crabs are ok; but there is nothing like a BIG bowl of steamed clams (little necks,cockels etc.) with hot melted garlic butter & some garlic bread !!!
