Clam Digging on the Long Beach Peninsula, Washington [VIDEO]

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.
