eskimo insulated vs clam thermal

Recommended Posts

Well its time for a new ice house and im looking at Eskimo fatfish and the clam full thermal pop up. A buddy of mine has the clam and i like the full thermal cause you dont get all the condensation. And now im looking at the eskimo fatfish insulated and have never been in one fishing, do those get condensation on the walls at all. Also any pros and cons between the two any input is greatly appreciated

I would go inside each and pay attention to how bright each interior is. I really like the the Eskimo but the black interior is a huge turnoff to me compared to the blue or grey interior of the clam. If your going to spear out of it, sight fish or fish in the daylight hours only then I would take the fatfish, a lot of night fishing Clam would be my choice.

I haven't fished in a clam thermal but i've been very happy with my fat fish.

Usually any condensation build up has shown up closer to the bottom of the house. Not the usual rain effect from the ceiling on other houses.

You'd definitely want a fan to keep the warm air moving around the house.

With the large windows it can be very bright to fish during the day and also very dark when all closed up, which would be great for spearing.

Fishing later in the day it would be a bit dark in the house, but with a string of firebrite leds. It'd be almost like day light in there. wink

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
