LET BASIN TACKLE MAKE YOU A CLAMMING EXPERT!
I came out here for thirteen years as a tourist and never really learned how to clam. When we moved up here and bought Basin Tackle I spent day after day on the tidal flats until we figured it out. Not only did we figure it out, we perfected the method using clam pumps instead of the the backbreaking shovel method. It’ll cut your time in half, you’ll stay cleaner, you’ll have less broken clams, and best of all is you’ll have MORE FUN!
At the end of the class you will bring up your catch so we can show you how to clean them. We will even share our secret recipes (once you pass a background check and swear an oath).
Show up fifteen to thirty minutes early to rent or buy your gear but the class itself is always FREE. A 48 hour clam pump and bucket rental is $15.00 and we also have rubber boots for just $5.00 a day.
Don’t forget to bring your shellfish license! Dates and times are subject to change and may be weather dependent.
