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

      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.

      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

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
