Toe digging for mussel shells. Sometimes it is not about putting on diving gear and braving the cold waters of the Tennessee River to search for mussel shells. Sometimes the work can be done from the waste down by toe digging. Toe digging is just what it sounds like… digging your toes in the soft, muddy bottom to find mussel shells. Bruce, the pearl diver on the Tennessee River is a man on the water but his wife Debbie. Well, she prefers toe digging! India thinks she could be a toe digger too!
