X2 sled and hyfax change

2 posts in this topic

I had to pick up a replacement hyfax set for my X2. THE SPACING IS NOT THE SAME LENGTH AND HAS DIFFERENT HOLE SPACING COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL SET I INSTALLED WHEN I FIRST GOT THE TRAP!!!! I still have the packaging from the original set, same part number and everything.

The hyfax clam sells is also only 3/8" thick, and I believe made out of softer material than other companies pre-made hyfax. I'm in the process of making a set up to use the holes that are already in my tub.

I got a bit more info from Clam about the x2 and the hyfax change problem I encountered. This years sleds for the x2 and x4 are a bit different than the first years. The newer sleds do not have recessed slots in the front of the sled bottom for the hyfax to be installed into. Then new hyfax is longer so more can be bent up the front to keep the lip of the hyfax from catching on the terrain.

Anyhow, I'm hoping that CLAM makes right on this and either makes two different hyfax sets in the future, or atleast hyfax without predrilled holes so first gen owners can have the choice as to whether to put additional holes in the sled or not.

I was lucky and found a holdover set of the first generation hyfax. The first generation x2 hyfax has a red "new" icon on the label, this years hyfax does not have this icon. Clam doesn't have any available, I ordered the last set from Thorne Brothers.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
