My wife and I have never been crabbing or clamming but want to give it a try this year. We live in the Salem area and would be willing to travel from Newport north to the Tillamook area. We would most likely rent equipment as we give it a test drive, and if we decide we like it would buy our own. Would any of you good folks experienced in this sport be willing to offer up advise on locations, tactics, and equipment and bait suggestions? All info will be appreciated!
