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.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?!
