new portables

Recommended Posts

I have a old Clam portable looking at buying a new one. Do you think the new one will hold up as good as this old thats lasted almost 20 years?

I have a 8 year old fish trap, it seen its better days. I am also looking for a new one (flip style). I've been checking different companies and I like the ESKIMO, I have one of thier power augers and I'm satisfied with the Co. They sent me a catalog on thier ice fishing products when I requested one. I still would like to see one inperson. I fish alone and in PA. you can't drive on the lakes so I have to pull it by hand, so I'm looking at the Quick-flip one person. I would say, check out thier Co.

OTTER OUTDOORS!!! It's the only way to go. I have had several different sleds and nothing comes close to the quality, durability, reliabilty, and customer service that Otter provides. They have it all for added accessories. Plus, they are the only 100% USA made portable sled. Some other companys claim they are 100% USA but import the fabric. You will be VERY happy with Otter. Call Otter and talk to Chris, you will be glad you did.

If your going to pull your shack across the lake at a zillion miles-per-hour, the Otter is your only choice. Clams are light, innexpensive (relatively), and creatively designed.

There are times when I'm out on Minnetonka, in a sea of Blue canvas, where I can almost here "Baaaaaa-Baaaaa". but I like my Fishtrap Guide anyways......

My Trap II is on its sixth year now, and the colored self-adhesive nylon red, white and black patches give the ole blue canvas a certain hobo sense of style.

I'd spring for a new "ice armor" fabric tent, but they want $170 for the suckers, so I'll keep patching, and patching, and patching and . . . . rolleyes.gif

Hey Hounds&Fish, look into a company out of Anoka, "CanvasCraft". They mount on a "Otter" sled, and I guarantee you will be very happy! Love to see guys "upgrading" their equipment. Try and take someone ice fishing who isn't "into" it! Good luck Bud! Fish On!!!!!

Just used my Nordic 2 man for the first time appears to a quality house, a big step up from my old Fish Trap II. Really like the built in auger holder.

I would have to agree that Canvas Craft is doing some VERY nice stuff down there. I really like the door on the bag of the Otter sled houses. Everything is well done and double thick where needed. Nice job! Price was nice too!

I made a deal on the clam 6800, the deal was to hard to pass up. If I hadn't found this deal I was going to buy the Polar 6x12, with three sons we need the room. I think the clam will do the job for a while.

I own a 15 year old Clam Junior and a 5 year old Clam 5600. They will last forever if you take care of them. I have used mine in all weather conditions and it never let me down.

    • So did Minnesota!  24,060 troops if I remember the number right.   This is where General Lee threw in the towel on July 4th.  This 24 mile road tour is pretty amazing.  Glad I stopped.   Just a shot to the left of the High Water Mark.
    • papa C brought 2 chicks by
    • @leech~~   My buddy Abe has a lot hair but was nice enough to try the hat at Gettysburg.  
    • And after Oakland its the Yankees! After this Mets series they must have a thing for being intimidated by NY logos on hats.   Wish we could get Buxton back but looks like he will be out for a bit now. I think he brings a lot of energy in the field and on the basepaths. Would like to see him pick it up at the plate more but he certainly brings an edge to the team that I think the other players feed off of.   Early on the team was deep and with a big division lead you could afford to shuffle out players and let the starters rest and heal. And those players were all stepping up. Now the lead is almost gone and injuries are piling up.   Lots of errors and un-earned runs have been ugly lately. We have seen Baldelli stay pretty composed so far this year. I will be curious to see what will cause him to snap or how he will handle all of this from a managing aspect.    Still a lot of games left which I am not sure if that is good or bad lol. I hope they make some moves but also dont want them to give anything up.
    • Yeah, with Oakland in town & on a roll, it could be a long weekend.
    • Does anybody have any experience with Wirelessbuy Unlimited Hotspot Mobile for internet service? I remember seeing it mentioned here a while back, but can't find the post.  I live in a rural area and my only options for internet are pretty much satellite or cell service. Two years ago, Verizon flat out lied about their home internet service to get me to sign up, my contract is finally up.  Is WirelessBuy Mobile actually unlimited Hotspot, meaning there is no data caps, no throttling, etc? This would be hooked up to my router and used as whole home internet. Maybe someone has a better recommendation?
    • Certainly looks like more  of a Saltwater feature, what with requiring an external add on device.
