Advice Needed-Portable with floor.

2 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a new fish house. Right now my dad I fish out of an Eskimo suitcase style, however my wife has learned to enjoy ice fishing too. The problem is it's not big enough for 3 people / heater / bait bucket, etc. I'm looking at a Clam 1060, figuring it'll give me the same amount of floor space, but the extra 2 feet (approx) on either side for holes it about what we need. We're not really into a flip over since 3 fising shoulder to shoulder all the time is going to be tight. An Otter double wide (or similar) is a little too big if it's just me or just 2 of us. I guess I have 2 questions. 1. Does anyone know of another fish house built similar to the Clam 1060? and 2. Can anyone tell me if you're only fishing 2 people, can you "tie" or secure one side flat to the upright poles so you're not having to extend that side of the canvas out? It's hard because none of the stores have one set up so I can actually see it before I buy one.

Thanks,
Lwn.

lwnmwnMan 2, We have a clam 6800. For two people you have enough room for chairs, a couple of vex'es, heater, bait bucket, and room to take your coat off. With Three, you need to be slighty more coordinated but we fish three often. Four !? -no heater, buckets (no room for chairs) must be qualified for synchronized ice fishing to attempt smile.gif
I like the floor on the new 6800 better now-it folds completely flat. It makes the floor space more useable.
