I just got an awsome deal on a Frabill Mag from Cabin Fever in Victoria! $100.00 off regular price! They had a few more left. Clam was also marked down. It's worth a stop if your looking for a house.

Really makes a guy wonder what the retail store mark-up is on these things, doesn't it? They knock $100, sometimes more off, and still make money.

I know that Cabelas and scheels have big sales on fish houses right now. they will also match the others price too. last year i seen a few good deals so i said this year i will buy one and i think they will come down a bit more, like after walleye season ends!

I picked up a brand new Fish trap Guide for $299 in early January. I doubt that I'll find a better price then that even when the walleye season ends.

I know it's late in the season, but I would like a Clam 6800. My Voyager isn't big enough for me and my two kids anymore, and I think a 6800 would be. Are there any more of these in Minnesota? Thanks

Sloop -

Looking at selling your Voyager?

Sportsmans Warehouse in Coon Rapids had I believe a 6800 left over last week when I was there.

i'd keep checking into gander/cabelas/scheels for the remainder of the year. You will be SURPRISED when you start seeing some of the prices fall to the floor. I bought my guide from gander in march and don't think i could have found a better deal.

Gander in Lakeville had 2 Yukons left ($100 off I think), and a few Frabils that were about $200 off.

Fleet Farm in Lakeville had very small discounts on their portables.

I picked up a Yukon at Gander in Blaine last week. They had four left,now three with mine out the door. I got $100 off plus 10% more opening up a plastic card account with them. Not a bad price for a Yukon. I had to get it after the mice decimated my Fishtrap III over the last summer.

The bait shop in St. Francis has a few clams 5600,6800 !x2 2man and a x2 1man. He said he's willing to deal to get rid of them. I know I'd be getting one if momma didn't have other plans for the tax money frown.gif

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.
    • HugeHogChaser
      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?
