6 man ice shelter
I need help with a 6 man ice shelter. I currently have the 4 man eskimo day fish, love it, but really would like something a little more spacious and want a 6 man. Is the clam good? I fish with two poles and everone I gowith is the same. So I would like to help accommodate that

i have the fat fish 6 it is really roomy and the extra width makes it nice for gear or if half the group wants to face the other way they have plenty of room

I've got the AP Extreme and it has plenty of room and it's black so it draws in heat. The only negative about it is if it's windy you have to stake it down good or it will pop the sides in or blow it away since there is so much area for the wind to catch. On a calm day you can't beat it.

Right when I bought this one, the 6 man went on sale, but it is no where to be found now.

I shopped around a lot and decided on the Fatfish 6 too. Really roomy and like all of the 'pop ups', it goes up fast and takes down even faster. I had a Grand Caravan and liked it a lot, but this one has SO much more floor space. The price just dropped by about 70 bucks too. The construction and material seems to be better than most others I looked at, especially for the price

I want to find the fat fish 6 ma, but can't find it anyone. The only place is from Eskimo, and honestly don't think I could afford that much. Just looking to probably return this one and buy one for next years season. Can't decide, not too happy with that "4 man" tent that is comfortable with 2

I bought the fatfish 9416 from sportsmans in provo 2 saturdays ago. I have used it twice, and have been happy with it so far. For the amount I was willing to spend, I have enjoyed it. The Clam looked nice and had good reviews, but for me the cost was too high. Having said that, the Fatfish has what I need.

Ditto on having it up in the wind. It was a little windy today, and I needed the satkes. With it being as large as it is, it can become a "sail".

My buddy bought the Clam Command Post and its on its second season and it is holding up really good. He puts it up every weekend. So there is my two cents. I think they are good enough for the money. I use a Eskimo brand. But if I had too I would buy one of those without hesitation.

i appreciate it man. i haven't been in too much windy situations, but read a bunch of reviews for those clam and none says it does well with wind. but really, all of em, have to be staked down otherwise its just a big kite. but i need to take the one i have back cause it has a light rip, don't want it opening further when i have a windy storm come through

I got a Cabela's 6 man for Christmas but after several of the stake rings broke off and the stitching came undone I took it back and got the Eskimo Fatfish 9416. It is almost 14' by 8'. I picked one up at Sportsmen's in Provo on Tuesday for $280 including tax. They retail for $419. I would call around to their different stores to see if you can find one and have them hold it

We have the older 6' man Eskimo Quickfish and love it.
We use it as a tent in the summer time camping and cooking.
When it wears out I will get the 6' Fat Fish Eskimo.

i am actually going up monday morning to the midvale store to pick up the 6 man tent. i took the 949 back to the store to have them replace for another one and they can't even get me one. so i will actually be getting a bigger tent, for cheaper than what i paid for the smaller one. can't complain there. thanks for the input everyone. greatly appreciatedSmile
