Just got back from clamming and I can say they are running small. We did our best going for shows bigger than others to no avail, many of the large shows we dug were two or three small clams together. about 5% of what we dug were typical 7-8" clams. I've seen many comments on closing the activity for a period of time but I was wondering why not just limit it to Alaskan residents, most of those I encountered on the beach were tourists and the few stories of gross neglect I've heard were committed by out of state/country visitors. My vote goes to make clamming like shrimping, state residents only.
