My girlfriend and I fished Monticello during the 4th of July week. We spent 6 days camping near the boat ramp. During that time we caught many good cats ranging from 1 to 20 Lbs. One thing concearned me during that week of camping. Every morning of our camping stay a group of Asians pulled up in a van and unloaded a blow-up raft. There were 6 people. After blowing up the raft all 6 people go on and headed strait to the same point about 3/4 of a mile from the boat ramps across the lake to a point where they hung out until 6 or 7:00PM. At that time, every day, the raft would make 2 trips back to the van. On those 2 trips only 2 men came back with the raft, anchored at the small boat ramp in the cove and unloaded five 50 pound rice bags full of clams for each trip. That's TEN 50 Lb rice bags full of clams x 6 days = 60 bags of clams! On the 3rd trip back out to the point all the people got back on the raft and came back to the van. They were so close to our camp that we couldn't help chatting with them. They told us that they were selling the clams to people in New York. I'm worried that if this keeps up the clam population will suffer greatly. Are there any laws against this? I have no problems with harvesting some clams for your own personal consumption but sixety 50Lb. rice bags? Come on! :0a17: Thanks.
