I tried clams for the first time yesterday in bags on a trotline. IMO They are not worth the extra money, time or trouble. I'm sticking with  necks.

 That's exactly how i felt the first time i used clams. I was runnin softlay lines back then and as i laid those lines with the bags the got tangled going out because the top edge of the bags were catching on the soft nylon of the line,what a mess. I had to pull lines and go in they were tangled so bad and cut one in 6 places to get them straight. Now i run hard braid lines and have been using clams all summer for about 8-10 years with little to no problems.

If I were running pots I would use them. The Com. Crabbers I know running 300 pots or more a day are catching 8 bushels + a day with them right now and as high as 20 bushels a day this spring but  Pots are much easier to bait and dump old bait with. The same with traps or rings. They are too time consuming for me with a trot . I didn't see any difference in the catch to make the change. You have to stick with what you have confidence in and what works for you.
