Butter, Steamer & Other Hard Shell Clams
- License: Call Fish & Game
- Equipment: A rake
- Limit: Call Fish & Game for size & bag limits
- Location: South side of Kachemak Bay and the East side of the Homer Spit
- Method: They are raked out of the gravel during minus tides near the water line. Rake carefully deeper into the beach until you uncover the white shells among the stones and pebbles. After harvesting, leave them in a bucket of sea water for several hours to allow them to clean themselves. A handful of cornmeal helps.
