Clam 6800 SOLD SOLD SOLD, thanks Curt

10 posts in this topic

I have a practically new Clam 6800 for sale. I bought it last winter (2004), used it two times (that would be 2 days)on one trip up north, and I am now looking to sell it. Too hard to haul that around in the back of my mountaineer. The house is in absolute mint condition. It has no holes or tears in it, the poles are absolutely perfect, in fact the paint on the hole covers looks like it did when it came from the factory. The bottom was pulled on the snow, by hand, at the most 200 yards total the two times it was used. I have pictures, but they didn't turn out that great, not that much room in the garage to manuver around it. I bought it last January at GM for $519 and I am asking $425 for it. It has been stored inside the whole time. A new one will run you at least $100 more than what I am asking. I have pictures if you want to see them, or call me at (952) 226-2122. Tom

my email is: tpickett@priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us

Tom, I would like to see those pictures of the clam. I have an old style clam 5x6 right now, and am looking to upgrade. How easy is it to set up? Does the plastic bottom seem flimsy or is it heavy duty? Sounds like you got a nice fish house for sale. Thanks.

I'll send them from school tomorrow....ski trip tomorrow with the kids so it might not be until after 3....I wouldn't call the floor flimsy, but I wouldn't call it heavy duty either...the one and only weekend it saw the ice was the weekend last feb. when the temperature was 26 below here at the cities when we left for duluth at 5 am and it was 28 below when we started fishing at 10 am. It stayed flexible the whole time, never got firm or unmanagable. I can set it up on about 2 minutes, but I don't have a problem lifting the poles up and stuff either since I am taller than the ice house is. (6'6" ceiling heighth) I marked the poles with markers so I know where to stop the spreader poles and where to put the arch poles. hopes this helps.

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
