How do you dig for clams? Walk out at low tide until you are waist deep. Drag a clam rake which is the size of a regular shovel (provided) along the sandy bottom. The rake faces towards you with the handle over your shoulder. The rake is sized to trap legal sized clams but let small ones slip through. Place clams into floating basket (provided). When you have enough, walk back to your own private beach and open clams (clam knife provided) - raw on the half shell or steamed lightly to serve with melted butter or pasta. Best clamming is in sandy/muddy water off Narrow River beach or Dam Pond.
