Going up there this weekend - anyone know where their sleeper houses are and if anyone's been in them recently, how did you do? Thanks,

Nobody on here's been there? Leaving in the morning - I think the houses are around Pine Island.

I was up there in Feb. Look for the post of Fishin in a Snow Storm with the kids. Sportman's did a great job and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Got back last night and had a great time. House was extremely spacious, clean and well laid out. Dennis was very accomodating. Fishing was very good in 32' of water, about 10 miles out from Sportsman's (quite a ways past Pine Island). Deadstick and "plain" lures worked best (Fat Boys, Jig-a-bits, larva jigs, Genz Worms) versus aggressive type lures like Jig Raps and Buckshots. On occasion, we had to entice them by slowly raising off the bottom up to around 4-6 feet (caught a couple as high as 15' of the bottom, but they always started at the bottom).

Biggest problem was keeping tulibees of the hooks.

Had no problem getting limits of both sauger and walleye. Only 1 perch, but it was 13.5" and fat.
