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.

There is one up for auction now. Here is a description of the trap link.

In this auction you are bidding on a Brand NEW Trap-Link Connector Item #8067.

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.

With the Trap-Link Connector, simply zipper the REAR doors together and Double the size of your fishing space.

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Fatcat, I haven't been up there since Christmas time, so my reports are outdated.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

    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.  
    • The problem with fishing walleye below 35' is that whatever you catch you best be planning to keep. Bringing them out of that depth will kill them for sure no matter how slowly it is done.

    • I had this exact model for many years and it even ran for several years after my wife ran straight gas in it and seized it up one day when I wasn't home. After it cooled down and I replaced the gas in the tank with mixed fuel, it started right up but always had a knock after that.
    • I came through Pennsylvania to get here at least and there isn’t a Maryland forum so here goes:   I have a couple extra days later this week and a car to go wherever.  I’ve been looking for a guide or charter to get on the water but am having more trouble than expected.  The Chesapeake Bay charters for stripers run up to 6 in a group but don’t mix groups so jumping on an unfilled boat doesn’t seem to be an option. I’ve been working with one captain willing to try but no dice yet.  I could have the whole boat to myself for $600 I suppose...   So anyway, is there anyone who has a suggestion, contact, or even a boat in the Maryland area for ANY kind of fishing?  Honestly I’m pretty open but would prefer something coastal.  Have car, will travel.   I talked to a guy with a sweet jet boat at The Point of Rocks on the Potomac yesterday but he doesn’t guide.  But that could be an option too.  Might head to Niagara Falls after I’m done in Baltimore so NY state so there’s another one.   Yep, this is an official Wanderabout.
    • Tonight I caught crappie, bass, big bluegills, rock bass, pike and a snapping turtle.... All after 11pm!  Try it sometime, tiny black jigs for big nocturnal bluegills. Loud Black topwaters for Pike n bass. Bring extra flashlight batteries and bug spray, lots of bug spray!!!
    • Those old 2 strokes just keep running forever.
    • I will take it where are you located ? Will be gone next week fishing be back week of 22nd. I am using a 80's model lawnboy push for trimming be nice to have a backup newer model.
    • I have caught fish on the slide diver but I don’t notice  any difference from the regular Dipsey diver and they are a pain in the one-just-like-silly-me to set up. I have Dipsy’s in all kinds of different colors and I can’t tell if that makes a difference either. I have one that actually will glow in the dark
