Another good day at the beach. Great weather and was surprised that not many folks out clamming today. Overall decent mix of clams for the day:)

Would love to try Razor clams one of these days.
Have eaten Rhode Island cold water, hard shell clams called ‘Quahogs’ all my life. Different sizes…..smallest to largest are called littleneck’s, topneck’s, cherrystone’s and chowder clams. Partial to topneck’s served raw on the half shell garnished with a dash of lemon juice and some cocktail sauce or steamed and dipped in butter with oyster crackers on the side. One of my top three, all time favorite foods.

I've tried a pretty decent variety of clams and would rate razors towards the top for taste. But don't think I'd turn away from about any with a cold beer wink

A party/head boat that I used to go on all the time in the '70s always had a Manhattan style chowder made with razors. Man, was that good! The broth was so strong, it made your hair stand up.

Got up way too early this morning for my last dig of this season. Had a great morning, easy limits and not many people on the section of beach I was on. Not as big as some of the earlier clams but a fine morning:)

15 clam limit there?

West side of the KP has been closed for quite a few years. Clams have never recovered from a minus tide freeze @ -30 or so.

Yup, 15 per day per person and you are supposed to dig your own. Its been probably the best year I've seen for razors this year both in numbers and the size of the clams. Makes for a fun day and a great dinner!!

If one considers scallop a clam, then yes.

Razors can dig.
