It's actually spelled Geoduck, and yes I've eaten a lot of them. We dug for them in tidal marshes around Vancouver Island when I was a kid.
The siphon can be about 3-4 feet long depending on the age of the clam, so you may have to dig down that deep just to get to the shell.
They taste great chopped up and flash fried quickly in butter and some shallots, or can be added to a stir fry or seafood chowder.
The texture can be a bit rubbery or crunchy depending on how you cook them. If you batter and deep-fry use a lite batter with just a bit of sugar
mixed in to brown it faster. If cooked too long you may as well be biting into a car tire.
Now get a shovel and bucket, head down to the beach and get some.
Oh, and invite me for dinner......
