The new CLAM 1060

6 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if anyone else has bought one of these and what they think of it. I got mine tuesday, and have only set it up in the basement....yes, i got the look from my wife. It appears to be very roomy so my two kids and I can fish and hold all of the stuff that two kids under 6 require.

Hope to try it on the ice Saturday.

You better make sure the house is secured to the ice or banked with snow.

Can you say "sail boat"...

Yeah, I thought about the sail bit....It has holes at the corner for spikes. This might be a good idea.

The floor dimensions are 10x6 and slopes up to a center portion that is 5x6. It is very roomy.

I will try it for the first time tomorrow.

It does look like a nice unit for those who have a crowd out fishing. Although I wouldn't mind fishing two in it.

It looks very heavy though. Ice Anchors...definitely, especially if you leave the kids in it. grin.gif

It is like a hotel room for two people. The weight is not bad at all, 84 lbs. I can carry it myself and no problem loading it into the truck. Pulling it is great on ice, I'll have to wait for snow to find out how bad it is there.

Off to fish, they are biting on rainy, 29 eyes yesterday.

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
