Looking for someone near the Annapolis area that sells clam chum. Called Angler's and they laughed at me.
I've purchased this stuff in Virginia before, but am looking to find someone local that has it as my weekend fishing plans have me leaving the docks before most tackle shops are open.
Anyone have any suggestions about shops I can try?
Yes, plan is to use it for Spadefish in Virginia. Although I used to have a friend that chummed locally after the rockfish moritorium and killed the rockfish with it.
Thick I'm gonna go the route of purchasing chowder clams from a seafood house and make my own.
Are you referring to Quahog\Cherrystone clams that are crushed, and then used as chum? They work great for Spadefish at the Cell.
Razor clams can also be crushed and used for chum. They (Razor clams) have been used to chum for Rockfish for quite some time.
That's what I'm looking for. I've purchased frozen clam chum at Chris's bait and tackle in the past, but will be headed past them too early in the morning on Saturday (hopefully if the wind forecast looks good). I like to use it to supplement the bait that we are using for the day. Typically tie off a mesh bag from the bow of the boat to allow some small bits of clam to continually flow to whatever structure we are fishing.
It will be easy enough to make my own, and certainly result is a fresher product than what I can buy at the tackle shops....it's just time is a precious commodity!
Clyde's used to sell razor clams. They are in Halethorpe.
This is how I know you guys don't fish...
Sometimes I think I would like to fish with Blue Lou... but something tells me he only fishes alone
I like to grow clams in my compost pill using pool water... I have found that they attract huge Marlin and Mahi Mahi in the chesapeake...but what do i know I have only been fishing the bay and its tributaries for 30 years...
GW- was that you hooked up to that marlin the other day? I was on anchor, live linning a small mouth bass, when this 80 lb white marlin came tail walking over to my boat. I did not know the marlin was hooked, I thought it was just out for a walk.
