sleepers

Do any of you guys know of a place that may have 8 man sleepers? Also, are you allowed to drive to the sleeper yourself once you know where it is? What kind of experiences have you all had with sleepers compared to a resort cabin?<BR>Thanks in advance,<P>SP

Ben,<P>I know there are several top notch places<BR>that offer sleeper houses on LOW.<P>I dont know about 8 people houses<P>Some places will haul you out, others will<BR>let you drive to and from.<P>There is not a lot of action on LOW after<BR>dark as far as fishing goes. I like a <BR>resort cabin because of good food and a<BR>hot shower.<P>Call the Lake of the Woods area Chamber of<BR>Commerce in Baudette. They will get you <BR>list of everybody and you can narrow it <BR>down to what you want with a few phone calls.<P>You might also try to do a search of "sleeper<BR>houses" on the forum and see what you come<BR>up with. This topic has been visited in the<BR>past so there might be some useful info <BR>there too.<P>Good Luck<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

Gibbins has 6 man sleepers and Bryant would probably put a couple of them side by side for you if you have qa group that big. Last year he kept roads open to them too so you can drive right to the houses. He has the best sleepers I have ever used. Thier # is on the resort locator.

Sportsman's Lodge as real Nice Sleepers but they only hold as many as 6 from what I can tell. I'm sure they will put two or more houses close to each other for your group.<P>They are well supplied with the items you need. Best I've seen!<BR>Nic<BR>

For what its worth six of us go up every year in feb we've stayed at several different resorts none had room to sleep more than 6 people. Service was good at all of them. We stayed with Schusters last year they had the largest we've ever stayed in. I believe it was a 10ft x 24 ft house. Lots of room to fish and tip back a few. hope to do it agin this year. Good fishin!

hey guys, I am the President of the University of Duluth Rod-and-Gun club, and we are looking for a good place to take our ice fishing trip this year. Previous years we went to Leech, Vermillion, and Mille Lacs, but the year we want to actually catch some fish. I was wondering about any input on the cheaper sleepers/lodges that could cater to about 30 of us. thanks cameron

Cameron:<P>this is what I did: My group is arriving Friday evening and leaving about noon or so on Sunday. We are paying $120 per guy at Sportsmans Sleepers. The registraion girl, Sherry, was extremely nice. My advice is no matter where you go, book soon as they fill up fast. Good luck fishing.<P>SP

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
