Clam 6800 SOLD SOLD SOLD, thanks Curt

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

I have a practically new Clam 6800 for sale. I bought it last winter (2004), used it two times (that would be 2 days)on one trip up north, and I am now looking to sell it. Too hard to haul that around in the back of my mountaineer. The house is in absolute mint condition. It has no holes or tears in it, the poles are absolutely perfect, in fact the paint on the hole covers looks like it did when it came from the factory. The bottom was pulled on the snow, by hand, at the most 200 yards total the two times it was used. I have pictures, but they didn't turn out that great, not that much room in the garage to manuver around it. I bought it last January at GM for $519 and I am asking $425 for it. It has been stored inside the whole time. A new one will run you at least $100 more than what I am asking. I have pictures if you want to see them, or call me at (952) 226-2122. Tom

my email is: [email protected]

Tom, I would like to see those pictures of the clam. I have an old style clam 5x6 right now, and am looking to upgrade. How easy is it to set up? Does the plastic bottom seem flimsy or is it heavy duty? Sounds like you got a nice fish house for sale. Thanks.

I'll send them from school tomorrow....ski trip tomorrow with the kids so it might not be until after 3....I wouldn't call the floor flimsy, but I wouldn't call it heavy duty either...the one and only weekend it saw the ice was the weekend last feb. when the temperature was 26 below here at the cities when we left for duluth at 5 am and it was 28 below when we started fishing at 10 am. It stayed flexible the whole time, never got firm or unmanagable. I can set it up on about 2 minutes, but I don't have a problem lifting the poles up and stuff either since I am taller than the ice house is. (6'6" ceiling heighth) I marked the poles with markers so I know where to stop the spreader poles and where to put the arch poles. hopes this helps.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
