Sure, Clam works fine.

Just use the standard fish finder rig with at least an 8/0 Circle hook.

Put the hook through three times. First time through muscle, second through the middle, then third through muscle.

Do as Steve has said and I also use magic thread. You can find it at any bait shop, just wrap it around the clam and around the shank of the hook a few times. Then you will be ready to whip that baby out.

Surf Clams. They tend to not like chowder clams.
