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.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).
    •   As in the one that lets me use his cabin for Turkey and Deer hunting!
    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck. 
    • Actually only one species of bumblebee so far.     I have no idea how one distinguishes the species of bumblebees.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
