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.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
