On my last outing I was wandering along the bank throwing a bucktail and noticed a few razor clams at the tide line. Does anyone ever use these instead of 'normal' clams? Are these clams endangered/regulated/etc. so we can't use them?

I know, I know, you need the license (I bought it) and have to check if the waters are approved, not at night or on Sunday, can only dig when there are no more than three members of the NJ legislature on trial, etc.

What would be fresher bait than digging it up right then and there?

I was thinking that after I posted the question. Us them for bait or take them home and toss them in a pan. Decisions, decisions.
