    So we went for our last razor clam dig of the season today. Probably another four pounds of cleaned meat. This will hold us until November when the fall digging starts.

    I'll be taking some clams down to my parents when we visit. Introduced Dad to them and he loves them. Lightly floured and fried. We hit more digs this year and are better at it so I have more to share. They make great chowder as well.

    I got to taste razor clams once... Delicious! Wish I lived closer to the coast so I could go clamming; don't even care what kind!

    BAY! LOL - shame that it's mostly true!

    No clamming here, but we can go crabbing...grab a chicken neck, some string and a net and you're in biddness! I haven't done that in decades.... Easier to go to Kemah and buy em by the dozen, lol!

    We're talking about getting some crab pots and dropping them off at the dock on our way clamming, then picking them up after. We'd get shrimp but need a boat for that. Sometimes we go after the steamer clams or oysters. Razor clams are just bigger and nicer. We're looking at going geoduck digging.

    Shellfish and salmon are our big thing here. There is elk and mule deer, too. Need to eat more of those. They eat my fruit trees.

    Been wanting to go crabbing for awhile. It's a shame. We live so close to the Delaware Bay, and never take advantage of it.

    I'm wondering if there's crawdads in the river. How do I tell, other than dumb luck dumping a trap in there? I've never done it.

    Just google crawfish traps, some of them look like minnow traps.

    We have one, DH said he tried it by putting an open can of cat food in the trap and throwing it in the river, but he said nothing came of it. I was wondering if they prefer a specific environment, and what to look for?
