Clam Ice Chair

7 posts in this topic

I was looking at purchasing a Clam Ice Chair does anyone have one or has anyone used one? Our they worth it or is just a 5-gal bucket better?

I asked this about a month ago in the main ice fishing forum and the consensus was that it is way over priced for the performance of the product. There are other ice chairs out there that hold more stuff in the $40-50 range that are more comfortable. I like the thought of the fold up chair, but for $80 I decided against it.

I looked at them also I didn't think it was very comfortable and not real sturdy the storage was nice but kinda spendy.

Better then a bucket for sure and I would have took one for a gift but not sure I'd buy one.

My cousin and uncle both got one and like them. They are taller guys (over 6'6") and they like the high backs on them.

I got one for Christmas and got it out twice since. I love it! Way better than the old bucket. One thing I like is that it holds pretty much everything you need to bring with you, put it on like a backpack, pick up the auger in one hand, the minnow bucket in the other, and you're good to go.

After sitting for about 6 hours both days, I found that it's a lot more comfortable than it looks, too. Now all it needs is a foot rest... shocked.gif

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
