By Bob Simpson MOREHEAD CITY - The whelking season is on. There aren't too many true-hearted whelkers left nowadays -easy living, poor whiskey and other signs of dwindling national morality have whittled down the numbers of us stalwarts. But, as inevitably as the migratory flight of the wild goose, the season has again rolled around for this unique pursuit. Beginning preparations for a safari into the wilderness where our quarry is known to hide out. I recalled that Franc the cook had always wanted to go on such an expedition. A back-up man w o u l d be good, I thought, so I called him. "Bring your Browning over-and-under. a good supply of No. 4 shot, and maybe that Irish setter of yours could point 'em. He's got a good n o s e . . . . a n d b r i n g your tenny runners. If you can move fast enough, we may be able to get you a few to film for your show." Franc the cook has this little TV spot for which he dresses up in a bush jacket and proceeds to cook various things, when he doesn't have anything else to do. Well, he was on his way right now. Selecting the only motor I have that still runs, I put it on the stern of the tin boat. Franc followed in my canoe, at the end of a tow line. We headed down the channel i n t o the t e e t h of a n o r ' - easter. With spray flying and wind howling, we bucked and rolled in heavy seas, and plugged on. I could see that Franc was having trouble as another sea dolloped me in the face and Mary set to bailing. Across the foam Franc yelled, "Cast me off!" In Carteret County this means, "Tie me loose!" I c o m p l i e d ' m i d s t the spray, and Franc paddled on past me. I had the motor wide open, too. I hate showoffs who pass me in canoes. Someday I guess I'll have to clean off the barnacles from the bottom of that skiff and put in new spark plugs. For those who have never gone a-whelking, a whelk is not like a nauga, which has only a hide. It's more like a big snail, and is referred to as a conch. But my literal- minded wife says that they are not conchs, that conchs live in the tropics and up here they're whelks. They must be fast, too, for they're named lightning whelks. They still look like snails, but that's not right, 'cause Frenchmen eat snails, and no self-respecting web-footed Carolinian would touch a s n a i l . I n s t e a d , t h e y e a t whelks and call 'em conchs. a n d t h e c o m p e t i t i o n f o r them is tough, as are the conchs, described as having all the tenderness of a truck tire. Now these critters prefer a mud-to-sand habitat, their favorite food is clam, and they can sometimes be found in abundance throughout the Carolina sounds. They're hard to spot when only a knob protrudes, but we found a half-dozen, which, considering that they weigh in at a pound or so of meat each, makes enough for an appetizer. · There are several versions of how to cook a w h e l k . There's this fellow who likes things that taste just like wild hickory nuts, and he calls whelks large, edible gastropods and says they open c l a m s and such by grabbing them with their f e e t . T h e w h e l k t h e n "strikes (the clam) repeated blows with the heavy knobs on its body whorl until the bivalve's shell is broken." Now I didn't know that, and it's a much .better story. T h i s c h a p c l a i m s t h a t whelks are good pickled. He recommends beating them out of the shell. I disagree there. The easy way is to throw them into a freezer, and when they're solid, thaw them and pull out the meat slowly and easily. Saves the shell for flower pots or the Bahamian use, as mittens, to keep from s k i n n i n g the knuckles in a fight. But back to the cooking: they're excellent boiled, stewed or in soup. I prefer them fried, like an abalone, only cheaper. Clean off the dark skin; scraping it will do. The "foot" is tough, and meat tenderizer will work, or it can be peeled, but I have another procedure. I slice the foot about a quarter-inch thick. And now, my secret weapon: for w h e l k s I h a v e a whelk whomper; for conchs I use a conch zonker, namely a wooden mallet with teeth. Show them no mercy, then dip the morsels first in beaten egg, next in crushed, seasoned crackers (not cracker meal) and fry in the oil of your choice. Serve hot. Yes, the t r i p was a success. However, one conclusion. Irish setters may point well on dove, quail, dimwits and towhees, but they aren't worth a d a r n for whelks. Still, I couldn't hit them on the rise anyway. KOOMS, Ef FIC.
