If you live on the coast and you're loking for a fun family outing, consider clamming or oystering. Took my family out to the Hood Canal area in Western Washington and clammed out limit of 200 native littlenecks, manilas, and butter clams. We even dug up a few oysters but put them back as I've never schucked an oyster before. Great time and on a good low tide, you're sure to go home with lots of clams in a productive or well-seeded beach area. We put 100 clams on the BBQ and in five minutes had clams for everyone. Had a side of red potatos, onions, and corn. Schucked the rest for the clam meat for fried clams, stir fried clams, clam dip, clams alredo. Yum!
