Clam 5600 and spearing

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried spearing out of a Clam 5600? I know the rectangular cutout is not very big but is it possible to spear through as is?

We have one in our fleet of spearing houses, It’s nice and easy to set up. You can spear just fine out of it in clear water lakes, but your will run into a problem in dirty lakes. The reason for that is because the canvas isn’t heavy enough and lets to much light in. If you do get one make sure to add carpet so its doesn’t make so much noise also. cool.gif

Thanks for the advice. I bought the clam new last year. I'll have to see if I can find some scrap carpet to throw in there. My first try at spearing so we'll let you know how it goes later on.

my brother is right. They are vvery nice houses, but the problem is, the canvas isnt dark enough. So if its sunny out, your going to have a hard time to see.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
