Trap-Link

Recommended Posts

Any one use the Clam Trap link? I have last years Yukon and was wondering where to find them now that they don't carry them at Clam anymore. I called calm and they don't have that model anymore and they won't be making anymore since it isn't on the shacks anymore.

Also, will ANY Clam with a trap link connecter in the back fit with another clam? Of does it have to be Yukon to Yukon so to speak?

thx

I am looking for some too and I been watching a few on that popular auction site. I am looking for the trap link for the X-Thermal though. I saw a couple of those yukon trap links on that auction site though.

No sure how the link system works though. They say Yukons will only fit the smaller houses. Good luck on your hunt.

Thanks For the info guys!

Fatcat, I haven't been up there since Christmas time, so my reports are outdated. If your in the area, go to Swanson's in hack, they are usually up to speed on where the bite is, if any this late. Birch can be a lot of fun for northerns and tip-ups, but crappies have been preatty slow this year.

I am heading up to hackensack the last weekend in Feb, i will probably go to leech for a day though since the opportunity for some Jumbos seems a little better than Birch.

Good Luck!

I picked up one of the new Nanooks this year and while I do love it, I find the door in the back of the house utterly useless for that size of shack. I know a half dozen people who bought new clams this year and it would have been great to use a trap link between the sleds....

I wish they would have keep the trap link, It was one thing that none of the other manufactures had.

I heard the reason they could'nt keep it was because of a patent infringment. Guess some other company years back tried it and have leverage over it. True or not thats what i heard. Dont know why else they would give it up.

USDA3, What are you looking to link to your Yukon? I bought a last years model Yukon over this years Solely for the ability to link it with my 6800. I have the Voyager link which is the biggest and I know works perfect for 6800 to 6800 and 6800 to an X2.

I linked my 6800 to the Yukon and it does work but it's not as good as the others I listed. The Yukon is lower so it pulls down on the 6800 putting a bend in the upper cross Pole and makes the door hard to zipper shut. I laid 2 2x4's down flat under the Yukon and it help a lot but could use more hight, or a guy could shovel some snow out from under the 6800 to make it the same level.

Slurpie,that is what I was told also from a clam customer service rep. I had a heck of a time finding one for my yukon. A friend of mine who works at Gander was able to track one down for me. I am planning on buying a used 5600 to link to my yukon.

Welcome to the forum.

Your best bet may be to check e-Bayy and Amazon--   every few days to see if anyone may be selling one.  Since they have not made them in many years you may be out of luck unless someone died and their wife is cleaning out the garage.  Good Luck!

I have one.  New in package.  I bought it when I had a clam.  Never got to use it.  I am not sure which models it fits.  If you don't have any luck locally, let me know and we could work something out if this is the one you are looking for.

Looks like a winner!

 

Worst case scenario you buy a couple zippers and some canvas and have one made.  

 

Probably wouldn’t quite fit as nice as the original though.

    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
    • There are other houses on the pond, nobody has a dock though.  I don't think my neighbors would care, I kinda ran it by the guy on one side.  Because the county plat map has the pond divvied up between 8 different properties on the street, I would think that technically taking a kayak around the pond would be trespassing.  Nobody has complained though and during the winter there were skaters and people running their dogs all over it and nobody asked me for permission.  Not that I care at all.   I don't need a Hatfield / McCoy problem with the neighbors, but at the same time it's my property.  If I had a McMansion on Crystal Lake in Bville nobody could or would complain about me putting a dock out.  
    • For those that knew him.     Great Outdoors (Jim Maki) has passed away. From the various stories heard it seems he died suddenly on his boat dock. It sounds that he was just getting ready to go fishing.               Below is the info found in the Ely Echo.  Jim will be dearly missed among his friends. He had just recently closed the sale of his bait shop and was relieved to find he now some more time to do more fishing and other things.                                    THE ELY ECHO  Submitted by admin1 on Sun, 07/07/2019 - 18:47  James Robert Maki of Ely, 70, died on July 6, at his home on Burntside Lake. He was where he loved to be, doing what he loved, fishing.  Born on August 24, 1948 in Ely Minnesota, Jim was the son of Luella (Erickson) Maki and Robert William (Ropey) Maki. After graduating from Ely High School, Jim joined the Army serving from September 1967 until December 1970. He was in the 173rd Airborne Division,the 41st Battalion, working as an MP. He sustained injuries in Vietnam.  Returning to Ely after his military commitment, he married Rebecca (Becky) Richards on February 5, 1972. He and Becky raised their two children, Krista and Steven, at their home on Burntside Lake. Jim worked at US Steel’s Minntac Plant in Mountain Iron from1971 to 1975 and as a millwright for Inland Steel at the Minorca Plant in Virginia from 1976 until 2003, when he retired. Jim was a member of Steel Workers Local #1938 and Local #6115. Jim also owned and operated the Great Outdoors Bait and Tackle Shop onSheridan Street from 1985 until 2019.  An avid outdoorsman, Jim enjoyed hunting and fishing. In his younger years, he trapped his own bait, and went ricing with his wife and in-laws. He loved the Ely area and was the unofficial ‘mayor’ of Burntside Lake, being the voice of authority regarding fishing and ice conditions.  Jim, who was affectionately known as ‘Jaws’, had the gift of gab and was always up for conversation. He had a story about anybody you could name, fishing advice to share, and was willing to express his political opinion whether you asked or not. He could becleverly funny, entertaining his audiences with humorous tales from his extensive knowledge of Ely’s colorful past.  Above all, Jim was known for his heartfelt concern and interest in people. He devoted many hours coaching youth hockey and was always available to provide support for his friends, family, and even people he just met.  Jim was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Becky. He is survived by his daughter Krista (Shawn) Zurn and son Steven (Katie) Maki and grandchildren Cas Grant, Ayden Maki and Kylee Maki. He is also survived by his loving companion of 20 years, CeliaDomich.  A gathering to remember Jim will be held on July 27 at the Longbranch in Winton from noon to 3 p.m.  
    • Is this any other folks with houses on the pond or do you have the whole thing?  Not sure if they would complain or not if there are?  
    • The crib idea is a bit more than I am looking for.  I just want a 4' x 8' dock section on a little pond.  Trying to keep this around $500.   It is a curious point though.  The pond doesn't even show up as water on some maps even though it's been there forever.  Aerial photographs from the 40s show it in the middle of a cornfield.  The county plat map shows it as water and it shows I own a slice of it across to the other side, as opposed to the normal deal where your property line ends at the water.    Of course for property tax purposes, it's considered lakeshore.    
    • We recently embarked on a paddling, fishing and camping adventure on the Saint Croix River.. We put the Kayaks in at Interstate Park (MN) and our take out point was Marine on St. Croix (16.1 miles downstream). In between those launches we explored the river, back waters, caught multiple different species of fish, camped one night at a primitive site, got rained on and had a blast! I can't wait to get back out on that stretch of river. This video captures a good portion of our adventure.    
    • It didn’t sound like his pond was much of a “waterway” but I get your point.  There are actual dock guidelines/rules published by the DNR that should be referenced.  I’m pretty confident he’d be OK.
    • Nice win last night! That triple play really picked them up. Thought Rogers was going to let another 1 slip away & then he found his curve. Hope they can keep knocking them out of the park.
    • I wonder if down here in the cities, if you would have to get a permit to put in a crib dock since it more of a permanent structure in a water way?
