    Cool Quahogs - Clams

    Any of you guys/gals ever harvest Quahogs/Clams? When I moved to Charlestown, RI my beautiful girlfriend took me quahoging and I love it. It didn't take me long to catch on and develop a good technique. I use a potato rake not one of those rakes with a basket. Since I am a seasoned pro now I can say this, the folks with the basket rakes are beginners :)
    For me standing in the Charlestown Pond harvesting quahogs and eating some of the small ones right then is really hard to beat. I was informed that eating them while harvesting is illegal but I can't help myself :) The quahogs I eat are part of my daily harvest and DEM can't tell how many I harvested since they are marinating in beer in my stomach. I always am prepared with my clam knife and beer, no cocktail sauce needed for me. She will make stuffies or clams casino with the large quahogs and sometimes clam sauce.
    From the pond to the pot or stomach can't be beat and I consider myself a real lucky guy. If you get a chance to try it got for it unless your not really a clam lover. Even if you won't eat them its a lot of fun. The season is about over for me since its getting kind of cold and won't wear waders.
    We don't bother with steamers/piss clams since I buy them for $2.99 to $3.99/LB which are my personal favorite seafood.

    Stop! You're makin me hungry! Dangit! Besides, those poor little buggers can't be as happy as a clam now that they are swimming in beer!

    I like to toss them on the grill while cooking a steak or whatever and eat them as they open up as an appetizer!

    Quahog sounds like it would be the name of a town on Long Island.
