They are all fun to me.
A couple of things mentioned in this thread.
People confuse butter clams with steamer clams.  Also Squid do not need to be skinned.  Been there and done that.

Spent last weekend going up and down hood canal and mapped out all the public beaches I can access. It was a plus six tide and by the time I was coming back south from stopping at quilcene it was about a plus 2. I was still able to get 9 oysters off eagle creek beach, sat in the sun shine and slurped them down. Seemed a little sweeter tasting then the south sound oysters I'm used to. Thank you to everyone that commented and reached out with Information and Intel I really appreciate it!

 :yeah: X2 people were talking about getting butters with a rake, they are like a foot deep and a lot of work, not sure what clam they are really getting. But in my opinion the best clam by far there is. Horse clams are great also, just got to pound out the necks.

Man there are places on the Hood Canal you just use a regular garden rake and you could get your 40 steamer clams in 5 minutes everyday.  Then walk closer to the water and get your oysters.
