Well, the wife says she's gonna try to keep me open on June 1 so that I can make my once-annual trek across the bay someplace to grab a bucket of fresh steamers and perhaps a handful of butters. Reports from a friend from an area we normally dig have been poor. If anyone would be willing to share some info where I might head-off to that might still be digging well, I'd really appreciate it. PM's perhaps best for specific spots ... I promise I won't bring a boat load of people over, nor spread the info, and this will likely be my only chance this summer. Thanks ... and as a repayment ... things are looking up in my neck of the woods
