I was out diving in the Barnegat Bay last week and took a break by the sedges. It was low tide and I took out my dive knife and raked up around 2 dozen.
Now that it's cool out, anyone still clamming? I'll probably get out this weekend.

Why do you NJ guys always clam in the winter? It mostly a summer thing down this way. Nice catch.

Less crowds, bugs, and sea lice. I like being out on the bay all year, but the fall and early winter is really nice.

I'd like to get out fairly soon. I have a couple of spots that are NJDEP approved for year-round, but are pretty close to seasonally restricted areas. I feel safer waiting for cooler weather/water to take clams there. I'm sure the water quality fluctuates over time, and I'm not too sanguine that NJDEP has the resources to stay right on top of any changes as they occur. Fortunately I have a closet full of old surfing wetsuits. My old bones are becoming less fond of sub-50-degree water every year...

Winter clams are more plump and better tasting! Less pathogens in the water also.
