Whopper clam Tue, 04/15/08 1:51 PM (permalink)
There were some real good clam tides the past week along the PNW coast and I took advantage of them in spite of missing one day during the week due to jury duty. Morning low spring tides are great times to dig for clams and after several days of getting some nice limits I beat my old record of 2.25 pounds with a monster that weighed just over 3.5 pounds. This is about as big as these gapers get. The neck, cleaned and pounded out, mesured 51/2" x 13". The body was large also and will be fried or ground for sauce or chowder.
I pound out the necks, lay them on a pan and layer them with foil. When they are froze, I place them in a gallon zip lock bag so they are handy to use just like a bag of skinless chicken breasts.
More good tides comming in April, May, and June. I got some good photos and will save the shell.
