Looking for clamming advice, but first:

Crabbed Shrews 11/11 with 12 chicken baited box nets for 4 hours in the morning and hit our bushel goal. All males, mostly in the low 5" range.

Now about that clamming.. I've never gone before. I'm looking for any and all resources/advice that anyone is kind enough to give, including permit information. I'll be clamming the Shrews from a 14ft jon boat with electric trolling motor. Bought a clam rake already.

Most of the Shrewsbury River is off limits for recreational clamming. It is in a restricted area which means the clams must go to a depuration plant before consumption. There is a small area where it is classified as seasonal where clamming is allowed from November to April. See attached, area in brown is restricted,yellow is seasonal and red is prohibited

Give me a shout if you want to go. I also clam Barnegat Bay as well. You don't have to have a boat to clam.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving

My Season ended 2 weeks ago until Spring.  2 Times out Limit each time of differently sized clams no need of any Boat or elaborate rakes. I clam the Flats with 4 claw garden rake since the clams are only 4-5 inches down no need to dig deeper.  The only advice is to use the Low tide and keep track or the Incoming. or you will have to Swim back. John boat bad Idea to Rake.  Yes this is The Shrewsbury. Good Luck Stay safe Stay Dry. Bill

Those are some real nice clams you got! I miss clamming CT this time of year but don't miss the cold at all!
Thanks for the clamming report and good job getting the clams!
There's not too many clams down here but a whole lotta Oysters and I like them too!

  So you love fried oysters, well then you should come to the ham & oyster dinner at the Gap Fire Hall " All that you can eat for 30.00.
The BRIDE and I go to this event twice a year, one in April and the other one in October. We have been going to them for over 30 years and they are the best oysters anywhere the ham is good but we go for the oysters. If these large oysters are selling for a buck apiece in the store's  you would have to eat 30 oysters to pay for your dinner, the most that I can eat is 17 or 18 and I think that is a lot. Last year I asked them how many oysters that the bought and the guy told me 97 gallons and a gallon of oysters is about 90 oysters of the large variety  that they use. We can't wait for the second Saturday of April to roll around.They put on a great dinner of Ham & Oysters and all of the other things like corn, green beans, potatoes, home made bread, pepper cabbage, apple butter. apple sauce, cake & ice cream, coffee, & iced tea. I know that I missed something but I don't eat any of that stuff only the Oysters is what I am interested in. If anybody wants to know where this place is and how to get there let me know ASAP .

P.S. You can get the Ham dinner only with all the fixin's for a reduced price.

My parents lived in Akron PA for many years, so I know exactly where Gap is.  Are the oysters fried or raw?

I've always LOVED clamming, but unfortunately I do not have a boat so it kind of limits where I can go. Any fellow clammers here willing to give me some advice on where I can go if I do not have a boat?? I would greatly appreciate it.
