Clam Voyager LIGHT HOUSE tent

13 posts in this topic

I'm new here and I'm trying to find out if anybody has any info on the Light House replacement tent? I have a Voyager and was thinking about getting the LH tent because they are only $50.00. Are they made of the same material the blue tents are made of? Are they just as warm? Are they to bright to fish out of at night. Some people don't like to have to much light when fishing for old marble eye's at night. Any info would be appreciated.

Maybe its just late, but ...To bright at night, well you wont have the sun to worry about, and if your worried about the inside light, Just turn your lights down to a low setting or set the light on the ice, that way it wont shine down your hole as much. I was going to purchase the white one for mine, but decided not to, I didnt want to blend in with the background out fishing inthe middle of the lake and have a snomobile run into me so I went with the blue background.

I hear you there. I don't think they have reflectors...or do they? I think the price is way cheap and if I would have to replace my blue tent with another blue tent it would be about $150.00 more then the white. I just wish I could convince myself that I would really like the white though.

make sure to shop around isnt, I think i found my replacement for 75, I think i waited till spring though, and even if they have the reflectors it wont help during the day, snowblindness is a bad thing and I could see it happening with the way SOME of those guys drive those machines.

Good luck on trying to find a replacement, the other option would be contacting a canvas place and seeing what they would want, or you could do some patches. What is wrong with the original canvas ?

Nothing really wrong with it I was just looking for something that would work if something does happen. I always plan ahead. It would be nice to have the link door that comes in the LH also. I have friends that have the link doors and it makes the fishing a little more fun some times when you can chat back and forth but have the comfort of your own house.

I hear ya there, I did get that in mine and i use it as an extra vent hole, also works out great for handing minows out to your "partner" Like I stated before watch the clam site and you might catch it going on clearnace this spring.

Good luck

Thanks for all the good advice. I'm sure I'll be on this site often. I have a couple friends that along with me, are really into ice fishing and I can't wait to call one of them up and ask if they want to go play "Genz and Brosdahl"! Did Brosdahl leave Clam Corp? I see he is in Frabill gear in the In-Fisherman 2009 Ice Fishing Guide.

You can get the blue for $75 on Clams site right now. Look in the closeout section.

For $50 it is way cheaper than paying to get a flamed out blue skin repaired.

Turn a artist friends loose on it, customize the skin..a nice white canvas to work with Eh.

Is that for the Blue skin with the Trap Link...they are selling the ones without cheaper than the ones with...

Also you can put the Light Skin Inside the Blue Skin and have it Light Inside so you can see better, and Blue Outside so you don't look like a Dork, and no one can see through and watch you catching or picking your nose like with the white only...and it's warmer,... whistle

A friend of mine came up with that last year...he was too cheap to buy the insulated ones...didn't like the heavier sleds, and wanted the house light inside and dark outside...it only adds a few pounds...less icing up and often doesn't use a heater during the Day...

And no it doesn't scare the fish...it probably just looke white like the ice...unless maybe you were spearing...

Well, I talked with the man who invented the Clam houses last night at a St. Cloud seminar. Dave Genz told me that they are made out of the same material as the blue tents. The only thing different is they didn't dye the Light House tent blue. He told me that they were white when he first invented them but when they hit the sales floor and got a little dirty then every body wanted a discount because they were dirty. First time I met the man and what a great person he truly is. So I guess I got the answers that I was looking for and would like to thank all that helped out.

    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off. 
    • North Metro Bass Academy Custom Tackle is having a 15% off sale this week 4/23-4/30 on all custom jigs orders.  We are also running 10% off all of our Tungsten Weights .... Flipping, Worm, and Drop Shot.  This will be our last sale before the season opens - so get in on it this week.  Tight Lines!  All of our products are on our web page North Metro Bass Academy   [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL]
    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
