Buck Hunter...Do yourself and the ladies a favor dont stay in a sleeper, get a day house and enjoy a hot shower and the night life. The sleeper will probably cost you just as much as staying on shore. Just trying to help you out. Now there are those who prefer to stay out on the ice. Either way its always an adventure! I have not stayed with Zipple...I do reccommend Lyon's Sleepers though. Always a good trip!

i second what wingding said. if you are bringing the ladies, you might want to stay on shore. the houses are fine, but the outhouse situation might be a problem with the ladies. unless they really like to rough it. also, make sure you bring portables with so you can move around if the fish aren't biting in the sleeper. we had better luck away from the sleeper when i was up there in january.

If you rent a new and very nice 6 person sleeper out of Zippel and tell Dianna your intentions of bringing up a couple ladies she may have Nick and the gang drag a outhouse next to the sleeper for personal use. If going up during the week I bet it's more possible than say on a weekend.

Not sure if they will but I've seen the outhouses parked right next to the sleepers before.

If the ladies don't like the idea of no running water you may want to entertain the idea of renting a day house and cabin. Of course for a small fee they will let you take a hot shower if you decide to rent a sleeper house.

My wife and I are going up again in a week and last year I set the X2 up next my sleeper and used it as an outhouse. When it was dark I'd bring the lantern out and heater and in a few minutes is was nice and warm for her. Three days and no complaining!

My buddy just had the sleeper moved to 28 FOW and they did really well. Can't wait to get up there!!!

if you ask for a outhouse they will put 1 right by the sleeper.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!

      maybe he didn't see the question yet? google is your friend. this one sounds like its for vets that are at the VA.  not sure. Check out Take a Vet Fishing online.  couple events coming up. not by Duluth tho.
