*SOLD* Original Clam 4 hole - Mint shape

Recommended Posts

walksonwater

For Sale an original Clam that I bought back in I believe 1992.

I put a new wood floor in last year and replaced the lock downs for the hole cut-outs.

This Clam has 4 fishing holes and only attracts the big fish! One pole I had to repair about 6 years ago otherwise

All the poles and canvas are in great shape. One small cut in the canvas (from my auger) that is about 1 ½” long.

This thing has held up very well over the years from pulling by hand and pulling it behind the snowmobile.

Hours used: 1000+ miles pulled: a lot

You can see the pictures here:

I am very interested. How does it hold up in wind? Do you know what size it packs down to and how much it weighs?

Thanks a lot for your input. I'm a high school student, so this fits the budget compared to all the other ice houses. Do you have any idea how many people could fish out of it?

bwcaw,

The Clam will fish two people very comfortably, although I usually fish in it by myself with all my equipment..i.e. camera and vex.

I must admit it's probably not mint shape but it is in exceptional shape for being 12 years old. The only other thing is on one of the windows the plastic cracked about 5 years ago (2 or 3 inches long) and I put clear tape on it, but it has worked just fine.

This sounds like it would be perfect for ya being in school.

5' x 6' opened up and 3' x 5' closed up.

The weight must be around 50 to 60 lbs I would guess.

You have 1st dibs on it...just let me know.

One more thing, does the clam stay warm with a heater, or does the heat escape easily?

Hey everyone,

I appreciate all of the responses, sounds like BWCAW may look at it on Thursday evening so if he doesn't take it at that time I'll let you all know. It's worth the $100.00

Thanks,

      Ahh yes, the Cool Cats!  I remember the first one!  Glad to hear this is still going on. I spend a lot of time on the Horseshoe Chain, but unfortunately I won't be able to make this event.  However, I would like to donate some items on behalf of Clam Outdoors.  Shoot me an email on where I can send them and I'll get some items sent out... mjohnson at iceteam.com. Thanks and have fun out there!!

      Tom Heinrich, who most recently was the large lake specialist covering Lake of the Woods for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, will now supervise Mille Lacs Lake fisheries management. “We’re pleased that Tom Heinrich has accepted this new role. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from other large walleye lakes in Minnesota and elsewhere, strong scientific skills and an open ability to communicate with and relate to various groups in the public,” said Brad Parsons, central region fisheries manager. Heinrich begins as Mille Lacs Lake fisheries supervisor on Wednesday, Jan. 24, at the office in Garrison. He will oversee the extensive field operations that happen throughout the course of the year to assess fish populations and harvests; work with fisheries research and other partners to study walleye productivity; study the potential impacts of big fish on young walleye survival; review goals for spawning stock biomass; and coordinate other work needed to answer complex questions about the lake. “This is an important position because Mille Lacs always has been a vital and popular fishery and there is still a lot to learn about the lake and the changes we are seeing. Adding Tom to the team to perform the detailed, complex work needed will benefit the resource, the DNR and groups with an interest in the lake,” Parsons said. Heinrich begins his new role as the DNR continues efforts to understand and improve a walleye population in Mille Lacs Lake that has undergone a decline over the past two decades that has coincided with significant aquatic system changes including increased water clarity and decreased walleye productivity; the introduction of zebra mussels, Eurasian watermilfoil and spiny water fleas; a changing zooplankton community that may be altering the aquatic food web; and declines in certain forage species, including tullibee. Heinrich began his natural resources career in New York as a fisheries technician on eastern Lake Erie and worked in that role from 1984 until 1990, when he accepted a position in Baudette for the Minnesota DNR. In 1991, he became the large lake specialist for Lake of the Woods and has been in that position since. More information about Mille Lacs Lake can be found on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/millelacslake. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I didn't get there either.  Planned on it, but found a good crappie bite in Wisconsin that I couldn't pass up.

      The opener was a zoo as usual.  There is 15" of ice in some spots, less as you get closer to the center.  It looked like there was quite a few folks out over the weekend when I drove past the south end. I fished mid afternoon on the opener and had one miss in 5-8' of water.  I had planned to go out last weekend as well but went west to fish with my son in law over by Melrose.  The reports I heard about opener was that it was slow all around but some fish were caught.

      If you're targeting pike you can do 2-3 holes overlapped with your 6".  You wouldn't have an issue with any beast then.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!
