Take a large pair of pliers or something you can use to smash the clams open.

Pick the shells off and toss them aside where you won’t be walking!

Once you get the clam out of the shell, cut it into small pieces starting with the ‘foot’ of the clam.

This is what the clam uses to dig down into the sand.

You will be able to get 3-4 pieces of bait from each clam.

The last bit of clam is not as firm so you will need to thread it around the hook several times to keep it on there.

When you have your baits cut up, take the foot piece and slide that onto your hook.

Roll it over and hook it again through the top of the bait.

With the last piece you cut, slide that onto the hook and continue to wrap it on the hook until you’ve created a ‘clam-meatball’ on the hook.

Then, tip the hook with a piece of FishGum to secure the bait on the hook.
