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.

It is by Clam Corporation and Fits the Trap Link Yukon, X2, and Clam 5600.

The TRAP-LINK Connection system lets you link one Fish Trap portable shelter to another.

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Fatcat, I haven't been up there since Christmas time, so my reports are outdated.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.
