I had great luck with frozen clams last season.  Had some call me
Crazy.  Wanted to see what everyone else would choose if you had to
Choose only one for bait for a trip

You can buy other frozen bait but no one sells frozen clams? Where did you buy the frozen clams?

Captain Bruce Crabbing Supplies has them, according to their web site. But for me, I just walk down the street to an Asian supermarket just before I drive out so they're fresh (not frozen).

I personally like fowl necks.  Smaller so they go further, tougher and seem bloodier.  Problem is finding them.  They are usually $2 - 3 more then chicken necks when you can find them.

I'm going to try fowl necks next time. The CN I'm getting are pieces. Most are small and thin . Many at 1-1.5 in. a little too small for me. I went out his morning but couldn't find a place to lay the line in a 2 ft. short chop trough run. Other protected places were either too shallow 2-4 ft. or too deep 15-18 ft. I saw a com. friend who had out 2800 ft. clams and said the bite stopped shortly after sunrise this morning? I never put the line in. Very high tide, I think it's because of the all the water coming down the Susky.

if you don't like the necks you got then you wont like the fowl necks.  Because fowl necks are from laying hens, they are smaller and skinny compared to breeder hens with fatter and bigger necks.

I'll ask to see the different necks next time I buy a case. The chicken necks are $22 a 40# box. The fowl necks at $30 -40# box. turkey necks $45 -40# box . I guess that's why everyone buys chicken necks .I think the skinny CN pieces get eaten too fast. No meat on the bone. I think clams would be too much time consuming work for a trotline for the few crabs I need. I'll let my share do their filtering for now.

Not where I'm crabbing. I can get fresh RZ C.  I would like to buy a used refrigerator big enough to keep a bushel of clams in + a bushel of trotline in .  Then freeze some and give the frozen a try . The commercial gang that I know that crab 6 days get them in fresh  M-W-F.

When I lived up that way, they were the only people I dealt with and that was many years ago before they got big and fancy.....  LOL

Agreed and it used to be the same 2 older women that took care of everything.  Now a bunch of kids that could care less if they helped you.
