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

    • You'd think they'd give Stalock a look.  His overall NHL stats are OK and not that bad down in IA either....Kemps has to have a "great" night and have everything in front of him going our way to be good...he's not going to steal games for us like Dubs can IMO...give Stalock a shot in the nets!
    • 1 I'm on board, but not sure how you go about doing that. 2 laughably impossible 3 Sure, but it's not going to make a whole lot of a difference. 4 OK, I assume it would need to be replaced with something else though. 5 is open to a lot of interpretation as to what "make no sense"   None of that really puts the power back to the people though.   Do you still envision a representational government with elected leaders?    
    • The fumbling thing and also the blocking and catching the ball where all things that I thought he should have been able to improve on.  To me the failure to improve in those areas seems to indicate he might lack the right stuff upstairs.  With his physical gifts doing something like blocking shouldn't be that hard.  Its not rocket science, you just need to know your assignment and mostly just be in the right position.  Its almost like he couldn't focus on more than one thing at a time.  If he got the ball he could focus on running but not securing the ball, if he didn't get the ball it seems like he couldn't handle the concept of picking up a rusher if need be and then getting out into his route, maybe it was just too much for him to process at game speed.   Like I said he's probably the best runner most of us have ever seen but the rest of his game was so flawed.

    • And trust me, these things will be much easier to accomplish than some progressive or conservative utopia. That is the real pipe dream.

    • Here are few steps, I'm sure you and Del will team up and say they are impossible.

      1. Remove the two parties from power.
      2. Keep money out of politics.
      3. Dump the electoral college.
      4. Dump our tax system - not worth our time.
      5. Dump old laws that make no sense.

      It might even be fun to elect a government who doesn't need to spy on everyone or bail out billionaires but you get it.
       

    • Bahhh ha ha ha ok there champ. More like you see someone else post up a clever meme and a few days later you claim it as you own, often failing to comprehend its meaning in the first place. Of course you do ok with a few of the easy ones.
    •   I prefer a unicorn utopia, but what can you do?   I take it you got nuthin on how you go about "returning the power to the people"
    • Look at it this way, every time a liberal posts something bad about Trump or the Republicans we are proven right. And every time a conservatives posts bad about Obama or the Democrats we are proven right. Is it really our fault that the entire political system is a hot mess? We are just here to point out the ever growing hypocrisy. I haven't seen anyone say they have all the answers, no one does but no amount of polishing those two turds is going to win anyone over.
