  • Polly Creek Clamming and Homer Winter King Derby Twofer

    Curious--has anyone tried running over to Polly Creek during the week surrounding the Winter King Derby? Looks like some decent tides around the end of March--if the marine weather is decent, is that a good time to give it a shot (historically, weather-wise)?
    Note to self: Don't argue with idiots, it just beings you down to their level where they overwhelm you with their more extensive experience in being an idiot.... and, you can't fix stupid!

    I have dug there in April, but not in March. Yet.

      Thanks! I guess we'll see if the last week in March works.

          Looks like you're right. Bummer, that interferes with the shrimp opener!

            John Swiss, who's family set net fishes at Polly Creek used to follow the tides out all winter and dig clams through the skim ice. The key is digging the tides as they get lower from day to day so the sand isn't frozen. If you try to dig building tides, the sand will be frozen.
