As your gathering clams throw all the small little neck clams on ice in the cooler immediately. As they chill down it makes it easier to shuck them later. The best thing after your done clamming in the sedge islands is to pop open a Foster's oil can and eat some fresh clams with lemon and cocktail sauce. That is about as fresh as your going to get it.
