Clam 1060 Question

Question

MossBoss95

I'm looking into getting a new house and was wondering what you guys thought of the Clam 1060? I like the 6800 but it will not fit into my GMC Jimmy. Any help would be great? Also if anyone has a used one out there I would be interested.

I just purchased a 1060, but haven't been able to use it yet. Will let everyone know how well it works after the new year.

howell,

I am interested in how it sets up and comes down...from the directions it looks like you need to remove the tent part each time??? That cannot be right? Does the tent stay fastened to the base and you just add poles on the inside. Are some of the poles attached at all times, and then you just add a few poles to strech the tent out and make it tight?

Anybody?

Thanks,

Muskieguy.......

clam up

I've had the 1060 for a couple of years now. It fits nicely into my grand cherokee which was a major factor. No need to remove any part of the tent at any time. The tent portion straps to the main corner/end posts but does need to be strapped to the base each time you put it up - easy to do though. I've fished with 4 folks in there no problem. And if I'm by myself, I only fold one of the ends out to fish out of. One complaint is that clam has to get rid of the cute little plastic ends on the frame poles. Mine is out of commission now cause one end is broke on the main center pole. Another negative was the zipper system at the bottom of the doors.... but of course they changed that last year so no worries there. Also very sturdy in windy conditions. Bottom line - I love the house and would buy it again.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
