Digging for geoducks as an out-of-towner

tofuflower | Jul 20, 201404:06 PM     12

Hi there, we're flying in from San Francisco, so we won't be able to bring our own supplies and need some advice on logistics.

Is there a beach that has a fishing shop that we can buy the fishing licenses, buckets, and shovel? Or do we get it in advance from a hardware store?

We'll be in a hotel without a kitchenette. Is it hard to clean without a proper sink? Is it unrealistic to think we can buy a cheap knife and serve ourselves fresh mirugai right after digging?

Alternatively, are there tours that local fishermen or enthusiasts help you dig for geoduck and let you borrow their supplies? I tried searching but came up empty. Thanks in advance!
