I had too laugh at that one... However, I would rather pick them than snip 'um'.

Welcome to Sequim! I'm about 50 miles and a ferry ride from you.

Pacific Oysters are big, delicious and the best imo. They're still in a few spots in the Sound but the beds are jealously guarded.

An "old guy" showed me the one remaining Pacific Oyster bed here on Whidbey, swearing me to secrecy. It's a little tough to get to on foot and not many clammers dig there, and we take care of it.

Oyster etiquette is not to take more than you will eat, don't disturb the oysters unless you do take them, and shuck them on the beach throwing the empty shells back in so seedlings have a good anchor to grow on. Or if you cook them in the shell like me, take the empties back to the bed.

For clams, the Butters and Razors are decent sized and good.

Geoducks are the biggest, taste good, but take patience and a lot of digging to get to.

If an old guy takes you to the best oyster beds you're in for a treat. My fav is to grill them on the BBQ.

Best are Willapa Bay. Fish and game has a big section of tide flats where you can get wild ones out of the bay on the south end of Oysterville just past Ocean Park on the Long Beach peninsula. Bring your tools and license but you have to shuck em there and leave the shells.

Thanks for the info Eric. I was beginning to wonder if this thread was even working, but you and RexB have got it moving.

Mountain oysters are okay. If you want to have a great time, they have a pretty good mountain oyster festival in Virginia City, NV each year. I highly recommend Tabasco on the things, and plenty of beer.

Talking Oops

I didn't realize that my wife was logged into FTE, and started responding.

She likes oysters, but not the mountain variety! However she did have fun and even tried one when we were in Virginia City. She did say that the Tabasco was necessary, but she also wanted a 'Shot' after thinking about what she just ate.

Best time to get Oysters

I know that summer is the worst time to get anything, but what are the best months to collect the edibles in the shells?

Summer is only bad because warm weather helps the Red Tide organism growth in mollusks, but beach closures usually don't last too long. Warning notices are posted on beaches and carried in newspapers, because it will kill us.

Low tides are the right time, the lower the better. Here's the upcoming Razor Clam opening March 16-18 at select beaches and if the biology tests are clean.

Perhaps I am just getting 'Oldheimerzers' or had a few to many, but I missed it some how....Ah...Life goes on

I am going to start a thread to get ideas from members about where and when would be a good time to have a G2G. Look for it, so you can give your input.
