First off, I'd like to start off with asking what types of razor clams that the crabs go crazy for.  I've seen two types.  the really long, flat sharper looking kind
aka

or the rounder, shorter type of clams here's a pic.

I have only been able to find the first type of razor clam, but not the second type.  Does it matter which type it is?  And if it does, who sells razors in nj for crab bait.  Or just sells them period.

I'm looking to try different methods of crabbing using different traps/pots/lines and different baits.  Any help would be appreciated.

Mr. Breeze, have you ever tried using the top clams?  Or has anyone else tried using them?  Did a bunch of research on these, and couldn't find a single thread regarding the top clams.  Closest thing i found differentiating clams was a thread that stated to use Hudson River clams only, and not clams from the Barnegat.  But it didn't explain why.

If anyone has tried the top clams, please let me know, as they are the only razor clams I can obtain.  IF anyone knows any tackle shops/marinas that carry these also, that'd be much appreciated.  thank u.



edit:  Is there a supplier who can ship for cheap?  And when using razor clams in the mesh bags, do u crack them open, or just leave them whole in the shell.
