Chasing a clam for 60 miles then shooting it from an airplane or helicopter is cruel.

I think that only applies if you use a clam gun bigger than 100 MM. They let the smaller calibers slide.

You have to remember that some of those clams are commies, they are part of the Red Tide Brigrade.

And they are taking more than their share of plankton. In order to maintain the plankton population...we have to keep clams in check.

The clams are 4-8 inches long. We like to clam in Ninilchik or Clam Gulch. It is a blast....very addictive. The negative tides are several times throughout the year, for a couple days each time. Hope this helps...

In the summer land just before midnight. By the time you get your gear out it will be the next day.

Ever go across the inlet to dig? Does anyone dig in the winter with low tides?

We have not gone across the inlet, but the clams are supposed to be way bigger on the other side,(good trip)...winter, not sure if you could get at them, but we have family that stays on beach in Ninilchik until last dog is hung after fishing, and can no longer get in and out around the cliff...I don't think too many clammers in the winter, they have not said anything about that one and we don't go down there then, but now the stories for the summer...another nightmare....they are now blocking buildings from the beach to the hillside or cliff...to keep the clammers out...they don't care where they go...

I use to fly out and land on the beach by Katmai and get some monster clams, but in the winter there is a lot of ice to contend with.
