Clam 1060

4 posts in this topic

Has anybody out there purchased or fished in the Clam 1060? I was interested in purchasing one but wanted some feedback first. Is it very portable? Can it be pulled across ice by hand? I need the extra room it provides, but not at the sacrifice of ease and portability.

Thanks for the input!
Good Fishing

Here's a link to a post from a week or so ago by someone who has one of the 1060's.

The plastic footprint is the same as the clam 5600 (5'x6') with a 2'x 5' open floor area on the ends. Hope this helps.
They looked nice and roomy for 2-3 guys, but more than that and it seems you'd be tangling lines a lot.

You know,
I really liked that unit. Plenty of room and well built.

I would not count on it being too easy to pull. It's more of a haul in your truck and unload type of unit. Pulling behind an ATV or snowmobile shouldn't be too bad either.

I wouldn't want to pull it 100 yds by hand too many of times.

I have used mine a half dozen times now and have only compliments. It is very roomy, 2 guys and 3 kids under 7 and we all fished without too much trouble. If you just have 1 or 2 people it is like a hotel room. Just have to figure out where you want the kitchen sink.

The only draw back, and it gets better each time, is the few extra minutes it takes to set up. The quick up ends go up easy enough, but then you need to put in the spreader bars. I have it down to about 5 min or less now. I definately feel the few extra minutes are worth the room and the small package that it folds down to.

As far as portability goes, my friend and I pulled the clam and my small otter sled full of stuff about 1/2 mile. They were about the same for pulling.

Hope this helps, if you have specific questions email me at ifalls_archer@yahoo.com
