Clam Digging Instructions
- Go treading for clams. This very old school method requires no equipment. The fisherman simply feels the ocean floor with his feet and searches for clams. As he digs with his feet a few inches below the ocean floor and feels clams or shellfish, he simply bends down and picks them up.
- Scour the ocean floor with a shinicock rake. This rake is short and meant to be used at low tide when the ocean floor has receded. Simply walk out on the wet sand and rake away. Once you uncover some shellfish, toss them in the bucket.
