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.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
