Clam prices

Assuming that you're talking about skimmer clams, AKA sea clams, AKA Atlantic Surf Clams, AKA Spisula solidissima, make that $0.00 shucked or in the shell, as I dig my own.  I've heard rumors that the price of these for bait has gone through the roof as of late.

 

Also dig my own hard shell clams, AKA quahogs, AKA Cherrystones, Little Necks, Top Necks, Chowders, AKA Mercenaria mercenaria.  

 

Don't dig my own steamers, AKA soft shell clams, AKA Mya arenaria.  Eat these fried and it's easier to buy than digging and then frying...

Good old SOL two answers that don't answer the question posted. Yay you guys catch your own clams two thumbs job well done. By me it's $23 a quart ridiculous.

Go to your supermarket  or fish store and purchase their dead clams that they are going to discard.. They will be cheap if not given to yo for free..

Clams are high. Clams I use in chowder have doubled price per gallon in 2 years. Boats and trucks run on diesel. I paid $6.39 gallon diesel yesterday for my truck.

If you find a good clam spot, you can easily get 50 in 30 min of digging/raking. Call RA Ribb for a rake and makes it so much easier. There's something about using bait from the area you're fishing.

Forget clams.  Worms are 25.00 a dozen.  More than 2 bucks a worm!

And taste like chit too!

 

Atleast with clams you can make something if ya get skunked!
