Minnesota lake clams

Recommended Posts

make sure you know what you're looking for. a lot of the "clams" are mussels and there are a number that are endangered

from the DNR HSOforum

"No live mussels may be collected in Minnesota. If you pick up a live mussel, return it to the water immediately, being careful to place its foot end in the stream or lake bottom so about two-thirds of the shell is buried. Currently, with a fishing license, a person may posses up to 24 whole or 48 half shells of dead mussels. However, it is illegal to collect state listed species. Since many common species look like listed species, and even experts can confuse them, it is best to leave mussels where you find them."
