Clams are great. So are the mussels and crabs. When I lived in Maine some spots were used heavily so the yield could be low. I could always find clams along the edge of rocks where the other clammers seemed to stay away from. There was a place we would frequent with a tidal rip that headed each way based on the tide. It was created by a narrow waterway feeding a large lagoon. Because of the strong current no one harvested the narrows, the bottom was totally covered with sea life. For about 20 minutes there was a slack tide on each tidal shift that would provide easy access to the bottom without fear of being swept away. (If you could stand the cold water)
