Help!! 6800 or 1060


Crappie Killer

Question

I've narrowed it down to these two. 6800 is priced 50 bucks more than 1060. I'm wondering if anyone else has compared these two houses. What did you buy and why?

Not interested in the flip-style. Doesn't work for the family. Won't be pulling with an ATV or snowmoblile.

6800 and/or 1060 owners, please reply .
Thanks, Seriously.

I love my 1060. Lots of fishable Room in the house. The 10ft floor space is nice. Nice to Have room without the extra weight and does not take long to set up.
I have even used my 1060 for camping for Hunting Season. Works Great.

I guess I would do the 1060. Tons of room and the holes are spread out more.

When I was doing my comparisons (2 months ago), I spoke to several folks. The 1060 was the obvious choice among those I surveyed.

I decided on the flip over, but if I was going with the other type, the 1060 would be my choice as well.

Good Luck,

If I was trying to use it for camping as well as fishing, I certainly would have gone with the 6800. Openings on either side would create a buggy situation, no?

Doesn't the lack of a lip on the floor allow ice and slush into the house on a 1060?

I fished in a 6800 tonight. I like the house. Its seemed very easy to set up.

Things I was not that cazy about:

1) holes are pretty flat with the ice. Allows LOTS of water in to the house.

2) hole location. Great if 2 people are in it, awkward with 3. If fishing with kids, this might be a nice feature if you spread the kids out and the each have one hole, but for 3 guys, two of them have trouble watching both holes, while one gets to fish side by side.

3) Seemed hard to heat. Its a big house, so you can not really get buy with a Buddy heater when the wind gets up at all or when the sun goes down. Dont like that the fabric is not attached to the frame. We were able to pile snow up tonight, but if you cant do that, I think it would be hard to keep the breeze out.

4) Hard to pull. Should have fold out skis like my Shappel, but maybe I am spoiled.

I don't know anything about the 1060, but out of ten stars, I give the 6800 only 4 stars, and most of that is due to hole location.

Hope that helps.

I purchased a 1060 last year. I would not go to a 6800, main reason it would not it in mt truck. THe best thing about the 1060 is the fact that you can drill two holes right next to each other. One to fish out of and one for the Vexilar. Never ahve to worry about catching the ducer when pulling up all those LOW walleyes.

      I would not call a casino an active income, everything is very situational there, it does not depend on you, but on the casino itself, so you need to be very careful about this

      I agree with you. But you will definitely need better components to set up an Rl craft hosting service. First of all, you will need the latest version of Forge. For hosting rlcraft requires these details  .  Furthermore, hosting a server also requires 3 to 4GB of RAM.

      Hei, jeg vil gjerne anbefale deg det beste nettcasinoet: top casino norge. De første tegnene på de beste virtuelle klubbene vises i begynnelsen av spillet eller når du oppretter en konto. Institusjonen skal ha et tiltalende design og brukervennlig grensesnitt. det er mulig at mange nye brukere ikke forstår hvordan de skal trykke på knappene riktig og raskt forlater ressursen. De fremtredende knappene og det intuitive grensesnittet er spesielt viktig.

      On the south end...  Walleyes are starting to stack up in various areas of the south shore with some good fall fishing taking place.  Most anchored up jigging with fatheads and frozen shiners.   Various techniques are still proving effective in catching, but as water temps cool, jigging will be the desire of walleyes and has been successful this past week.   Trolling crankbaits is still catching fish.  If you are struggling catching the fish you are jigging or the fish are spread out, try pulling cranks which will put your lure in front of many fish in which you only need a taker here and there for a successful day. Good numbers of fish are still being caught pulling spinners, especially over flats or on the outside of structure.  On the Rainy River...   Some very good reports on the Rainy River this week.  Shiners are in the river and so are the walleyes.  Is this the big run, not sure, but most are catching fish, and some big ones.   Anglers report nice fish both in Four Mile Bay and the river, but these fish are moving around.  Try different spots until you find them.  Look for clouds of emerald shiners, they show up nicely on most sonar.   This is the fall run and it should only get better.  These river fish are moving, once you find them, it can be a memorable day.  Looking for fish, trying different spots can be helpful in finding fish.  Anchoring up in the same spot all day hoping the fish come through can make for a tough day.     Jigging with a frozen shiner or trolling cranks in the river are both catching walleyes. Sturgeon activity continues to pick up as water cools.  Most fishing the holes of the river.  A 3 - 4 ounce weight with lower current has been sufficient combined with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers or crawlers and frozen shiners. Fall is a great time to take your own boat on the small waters of the Rainy River.  Boat ramps scattered from Wheeler's Point to Baudette east to Birchdale.  Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing stays consistently very good up at the Angle.  Walleyes are being caught using the three techniques mentioned above.  Some fishing MN waters, others venturing amongst the Ontario side of the lake.  Good fish being caught on both sides.   In addition to fish still over deep mud, traditional structure is also holding walleyes.  Points, rock islands, sunken islands, neck down areas, etc.   Some nice muskies were caught this week.  October is traditionally a great month with trolling shorelines in the mix of techniques.   The government of Canada has officially announced they are lifting the COVID vaccination requirement and is allowing the ArriveCan app to be optional starting October 1, 2022.  This will make the drive to the NW Angle for many, which includes about 40 miles through Canada, once again possible.
