  1. One topic I would like to look into more and get a better understanding of, is the surf clam. I wanted to come here first. I remember seeing something about how far out the clammers have to go now? They used to be in close and are now going further and further offshore for them? Excuse my ignorance as I know zero about this. Can anyone chime in and give some history about the surf clam and/or its relation to the fishing on the surf? If it's true that the surf clam or beds are no longer present, in general, wouldnt that be a huge reason as to why the fish, mainly bait(besides sand eels) dont need to come in close and hang around? Habitat is still number 1 only IMO but I remember after a NE if you put on clam it was one of the times you could get bigger fish on them versus it being considered a numbers bait. Heck, I used to walk the shoreline, look for whole and busted up clams then fish right there and get into them good. I havnt noticed this in a while, although I havnt fished as much in recent years. I saw it mentioned one time(not sure if it was here on SOL) but when these topics come up, I rarely see anyone talk about it. Can someone with more knowledge on the subject fill me(us) in?
