Honey Hole on Agawam Beach

Submitted by Liz Novak on Sun, 12/08/2013 - 23:06

On Black Friday, I woke up and took a stroll to the local Harbor Master to check the current shellfishing map. This is basically a shack on a pier with a colored-pencil drawing of the surrounding waters with details on what kind of fishing is legal in different areas. The only open clamming bed close-by was on Agawam Beach, a beach I've never visited. Although I didn't know where the good clamming spots were at that location, my friends visiting from Chicago and I were determined to get some quahogs. And by gad, we got em. We putzed around looking pretty legit without getting anything for a long hour or more:

We were just about to give up. And then Spencer found the honey hole. We were filling up in no time.

We were pretty pleased.

Check out Agawam before I scoop up all the clams.
