I guess I never really knew what clam digging was.
In my head, I pictured people on the beach, sunburned, possibly inebriated, with pails and shovels, digging away.
As Capt. Milt Gudgell shows in the following video, that’s not the case.
There’s a lot more effort and strategy involved as Gudgell show us how to dig for clams along the Long Beach Peninsula.
I never expected to see what looks like a post-hole digger in use. Then there’s the stomping and other techniques.
If you like razor clams, this is the video for you.
