Clam Denali 2 person Thermal Cap

Recommended Posts

I picked up this house looking for a lot of fishing space without having to have room for a really big house. I wanted to stay with an insulated flip over sled style. Well I've been out of the ice several times with the Denali 2 person dual flip house and thought I'd share a few thoughts about how it's been working out for me so far.

There's plenty of fishing space for each person with the two people sitting side by side but fishing back to back. My first thought was how to effectively heat this house. Two options went through my head with a big buddy on one end with a computer fan to circulate the air or to run two separate buddy heaters with one on each side. I went with the two buddy heater route with a propane tank splitter and two hoses. I've fished in it down to 15 below zero and have been very comfortable in a sweat shirt. With the thermal cap and adjustable vents there's no dripping.

It takes a little practice to get the house folded and unfolded as you're dealing with two flips. The nice thing is that when it's folded up it will fit in any short box truck with ease. It loads easy as long as you don't load it too full of gear. I have mine rigged with led lights and power by a 8 amp battery in a Clam battery bag and bracket mounted to the tub. The Outdoor Pro Store firebrite led lights make things bright.

It's not a tall house but not too short either. I'm 6 foot and can't stand up straight in the house and I'd guess it's about 5 1/2 feet tall. The two doors are big enough for me to get in and out of it. it also has two tables with a beverage holder for storing your stuff. If you're used to storing stuff in 5 gallon buckets there's room for one or two in the tub with the seats/tables in place. Lots of room underneath for shorter stuff.

I'm always looking for ideas for tweaking out the portable house. Anyone else have one with some suggestions modifications? I would be eager to hear them.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
