Because the river levels were very low and there is some rain looming in the near future we decided that we would not go trout fishing. Jan had some guest at his house, and would not be able to go early, so a new plan was hatched. I would splash the boat at 530 and run to the clam grounds and load up. Then i would run back to the ramp and pick Jan up. our reasoning was simple. I could go score some clams before the rain and then catch bass. Not that we are anti trout fishing but we can go next week with the hopes of the water levels being up a little.
I over slept. There you go, I over slept. I went into turbo mode to grab the boat and get going. I figured i had time left. For those of you who don't know, clamming is done at low tide, and the tide waits for no one. I got down to the ramp at 6am to find everything blanketed in fog. Thick fog is not a problem it just means i can not run hard through it. After all this i did make the 4 mile run to the clam grounds with enough time to get what I needed. The beds have recently been seeded and i got the score of a life time. I worked the rake in one spot to fill my basket. It was as if I was digging a hole filled with clams. Mission accomplished.
On another note, i apologize for the lack of good pics. I was running my video camera to do a you tube video for everyone with the clamming in the fog. I am unable to do anything since i can not convert my kodak playsport files to window movie maker, sorry.
