Wink Drysuits Another Level Clamming

I went clamming in parts unknown the other day and limited out. 5Mil gloves and my drysuit raking in water chest deep 2 1/2 hours and was sweating in 46 degree water!! Enough said with correct layers and a VHF this WILL save your life!! The only negative to this is I feel like i almost could last many hours longer not even being chilled yet. I even threw my wool hat in my clam float after first 20 min. I cannot stress a drysuit enough for safety.

Your worried about being safe and your eating clams from NJ waters? Screw the drysuit you might as well wear a speedo and lead boots.
Lets sell homeless people for cheap fuel and farm kittens as a source of hats.

I assume Dennis was raking clams for fishing. And I assume Dennis was raking in the RB area. It's not legal to take clams from Monmouth County waters and north, even for fishing purposes....unless the regs changed again. There is a small section of the mouth of the Navasink that's legal this time of the year, Nov-april, but access is limited at best...go figure.
Not breaking balls, just lookin out...the MAN doesn't care if it's for fishing or consumption, they'll ticket you if you're violating the law regardless.

Here's the map, click on the area and see what's legal/safe...illegal/unsafe.
http://www.nj.gov/dep/bmw/waterclass.htm Toms River on south is where the open season starts on clams...and there are still prohibited areas there too. Gotta love NJ.
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still within them.

Yes already ate all 150 Clams. From NJ in a legal area but sure as hell would not eat shi* out of the raritan area legal or not!! Where I was clamming the clams are perfectly safe to eat. The water temps and lack of boats in the water right now is a perfect time to harvest legal clams. Matter of a fact ate 5doz raw in a single sitting.
