Frabill 6010 Hideout ice houe vs Clam 5600

3 posts in this topic

The wife would like to pick up one of these cabin ice houses so she could stand up and stretch the back once in a while. We have an older Clam Fish Trap Guide that is not so tall. Not being opposed to getting new fishing equipment, I said OK and started looking at the options. The Clam 5600 and Frabill 6010 are in the price range.

1st some questions. We generally take sleds out on the ice so:

1. Can either or both be pulled behind a sled?

2. Is it possible to rig it so it rides on top of my current Fish Trap Guide? or

3: Do I need another sled to pull it out?

4: What are the pros and cons of both.

I plan on trying to judge both of these at a local outdoor store soon (and any others), purchasing and fishing ASAP. It has been too long without a fish on.

Thanks for the replys in advance.

I like the Clam Command Post and Base Camp, the Eskimo Quick Fish 3 and 6 are basically the same for a little less green.

To answer your questions but about this shack

1. Yes, on your back or on top your current house.

2. No, its light and stackable on your current house

3. No, same as #2.

4. Pros-Light and plenty of head room and lots of fishing space

Cons-No floor and needs ice anchors on windy days (included in package)

1- I know the clam has a board over the hole openings to keep the snow out when transporting that sometimes comes out.

I would just buy a voyager or an X2, you can stand up in them and as you know, they are way more mobile and quicker to set up.

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
