Clam 2000 (Poles Freezing)

3 posts in this topic

Is there anything I can do to stop my poles from freezing after I am done fishing? Often times I have to put my Mr. Buddy heater in the corners to thaw out the poles before I can get them to retract. Someone suggested graphite? Would this work? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Graphite is a dry lubricant and I'm not sure about it's ability to prevent ice buildup on it. I would think that skiwax or tent silicon might work better to avoid water condensation that turns to ice.

Thanks Slipperybob! I will give them both a try.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?
