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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
