anybody can tell us where a good spot to dig a few clams
up around Myrtle Beach area. I see one person dug up 3 dozen
but not sure where he was and do not want to wander 60 miles
of beach digging lol....Thank you. also any special technique ??
to get real cherryneck clams for eating, not the tiny ones u find in whiting and pompano guts, u need to go into the salt marsh
theres only one place where boatless people can legally get clams= the oyster recycling station near Huntington Beach State Park.
It is located about a couple of hundred yards north of the park entrance along US17. It is a small dirt road leading to it. It is also a landing/oyster recycling place, and place for clams and oysters.
you need to find a day where low tide gets very low.
It is most productive for clams to go all the way out onto the sand flat and look for keyhole shape holes on the sand/mud flat. Dig down with any gardening tool and get ur clams.
Also, wear rainboots/waders and long pants with weatshirts- it hurts to fall on oyster beds.
And don't leave anything valuable in your car at the oyster recycling place.
Thank you for the info might try and get me some of them
