I think your asking if anyone does any clamming in the MD/DE area? I have not so can't offer any advice, but have done quite a lot in the northeast, CT, RI, MA, ME. I'm guessing what you call a hard clam is the same as us, a littleneck or quahog. My favorites are the soft shell clams, generally referred to as steamers.

I'm in VA this week. I was looking at hundreds of them that were.raked up by some of the people.I travel with. I prefer to buy 50 little necks. The big chowder clams are great striper bait in the fall but that is about all I value them for. Love the little necks.though.

 35 yrs. ago we used to get them down in Delaware - Indian River Area.  Couldn't tell you where in the bay anymore. I do remember that some areas were comtaminated and off limits.
The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

LMAO. I know how that goes. I saw that loads of areas are closed because of water quality. So my main reason for asking was being so many areas are closed is it worth the effort in the area that are open.  There's tons of them in the New England states but the license is outrageous and the limits are minimal.

While on vacation recently to Cape Cod, I was reminded by some local folks I needed to get a permit/licence for clamming? Huh, my family and i had been doing it all along for 20 years or more there. Stuart, any truth to this?

You really do need a permit most places in New England, if you get caught by the clam cops it's a substantial fine. The Cape towns are notorious for busting summer scum for everything from illegal clamming, to speeding to j-walking. Many clamming areas are policed by the town and they watch them like hawks, I'm surprised you got away with it as long as you did. I have to say there are few things as tasty as a fresh oyster, pulled off a rock and eaten on the half shell while duck hunting. No permit. Yummy!  :)

oh geez. I remember when I was a teen punk back in the 70's hanging out on the beach. One of the guys I hung out with grew up on his dads fishing boat. He would swim out to the end of the old pillons and bust of a chunk of oysters and swim back. He would crack 'em open and sit there with a warm beer and slurp down one raw oyster after another. Ever since then I couldn't eat anything in a half shell. :P
