Fresno woman fined $88K after kids collect clams from Pismo Beach

Still Waters

At the end of last year, Charlotte Russ and her family took a trip to Pismo.

"My kids they thought they were collecting seashells, but they were actually collecting clams, 72 to be exact," said Fresno resident Charlotte Russ.

Her children collected rows of clams, but they learned an expensive lesson: clamming has regulations.

"Right before we went, that's when I opened it and that's when I saw the amount," said Russ.

She got a ticket on the spot and later received a notice she would have to pay just over $88,000.

What an enormous fine! The family was fortunate that officials were understanding and willing to reduce it.
