6800 or 1060

Recommended Posts

I had decided on a Clam 6800 and my son looked at a 1060 and said it was a better house and it was also cheaper. Any advice on these two houses. I think I will wait a bit to see if they come down in February.

The 6800 is your run of the mill suitcase style, the 1060 is more like the foldout style like the traps, If your looking more towards setting up and fishing, they're both good units. If you perfer to move more I would check into the dual flip sleds. Eskimo makes a mint dual flip but price is any where from $629 to $750. The polar sport 6x12 dual flip is awesome. I have the 3 man single but going to upgrade to the bigger one if granpappy don't beat me first.

I bought a 1060 about 3 weeks ago. Yes, it does have 10 poles that you have to snap together, but I can put it up and tear it down in under 3 minutes. You can easily fish 3 people in it, 2 holes each, with room to stretch your legs, and still have a 20lb propane tank, 2 minnow buckets, Vex, room for all your other gear. It's a very nice portable for people that go to one spot and fish. Most of the fishing that I do is in the Chisago area (home) and I know where the fish SHOULD be, so I don't move alot, just make sure I mark fish before I set up. In my opinion, between the 2 houses, I'd get the 1060, it'll give you 12 more square feet to put the buckets and heaters out of the way. Doesn't sound like alot, but it's nice.

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
