I have found that sleeper houses are too expensive. Get a hotel room and split it with your buddies and just bring your own gear out. Much cheaper way to go

Check out Long Point. A buddy keeps telling me they are cheap and good. I have never fished there myself but my friend says $17.00 a hole in a day house but then you still need to sleep somewhere and I think Long Point is a long ways from any cheap motel.

I think if you factor in ALL associated costs a sleeper is the way to go.

I usually go to zippel. I figure cost for the sleeper (about a hundred bucks per guy, for 2 1/2 days of fishing), bait, and fuel to get there. I bring all my own food, beer and booze. I can do a LOTW trip for 2 1/2 days for roughly $200.

Sorry dude, it dont get any cheaper than that. Maybe you should be realistic with the fact that you cant afford a trip to LOTW at all.

Google Zipple bay resort. You'll find a link to their website with all of there prices listed and directions to the resort. Good luck.

red lake sleeper may be more in the budget and closer. Borrow the money from the parents and go.

They have always treated me very well. But that is just my 2 cents. What was the problem?

Fishinfreak: Not to sound like an a** here, but 17 and no job???? There are people looking to hire. Flippin a few burgers earns some cash. You're probably living at home so the expense factor shouldn't be to great. As mentioned above this may not be the year for the LOW trip. You need to prioritze, the wants and the needs and spend your money wisely. Hope you can make the trip one day, you will enjoy it. Bill

Sounds like you need to talk to your parents. If they approve of you going on the trip and they are in good fiancial shape ask what you can do for work to earn some cash. Shovel snow, clean house, get a job or what ever. If the family as a whole is having hard times its time to grow up and realize we can't have everythin we want. Good luck I hope it works out for you, and give you credit for trying to do it a cheap as possibe.

      Fishing with my father and my son on Father's Day hasn't happened in a long time...so this was fun.  Helped that the storms stayed south. 1/4-1/2 mile off the border straight out from the gap in 29-ish feet of water jigging worked for us.  Limits of 17+" walleyes by lunch both days, with a handful of slots for good measure.  Hardly any sauger, though.  Jig color rotated, so if something isn't working, change it up.  Black, gold, orange, pink, white, green, chartreuse all produced at one point or another.  Not everyone was catching, and moving 1/4 mile or even a couple hundred feet made a big difference at times. We didn't try it, but heard of spinners and crawlers working up shallow (6-10 feet) along Pine Island. Mayflies are starting to hatch.  Dad saw some floaters on the Rainy on Saturday, and I saw some in town at the gas station when I left Monday morning.

      Any current reports, crappies still biting? Going to give it a go Friday morning.

      Don’t forgot the requirement for non-resident anglers to wear blaze pink any time they’re on the water! 😆 My serious advice would be to visit the nearest bait shop. My experience is that they are always helpful in helping navigate the license requirements AND get you on some fish.

      Well the weather was a bit rough here until yesterday in Cass Lake.   Lots of storms and unsettled weather.   Still finding walleyes either in 8-12 fow or 17-21 fow during the day.  Leaches or shiners have been catching fish.  At night you'll find walleyes in 4-8 fow and willing to hit various crankbaits in various colors.  Lots of smaller eyes still being caught but nice ones too

      ya don't need a cajun, just the seasonings!!!!  and the rest of the fixins of course!!! but it would be fun with the real thing too!!

      We just got back from a week primarily fishing the east/south side.  I won't lie it was super tough, we didn't even mark fish for hours some days driving around the humps/shoreline breaks.  Usually its pretty good this time of year but this year it was brutal.  Few days we'd end up with 2 or 3 fish for half a day of fishing.  The tank at camp probably counted 35 walleyes cleaned for the week for 40 anglers.  Few slots but just not biting down that way.  Lots of pike came in and panfish.

      Tough bite for decent fish the past few days! Went out by myself this morning and switched tactics again. Trolled spinners/1/2 crawler and #4 gold Shad Raps on a 3-way rig in 24' to 30'. Had my limit of 4, 15" to 16" walleyes and a jumbo in the first hour! Released 5 other smaller walleyes also during the 2-1/2 hours that I was out. Cliff

      Went out yesterday for a little while, thought I’d just go close with the kayak given the time slot I had. Just planned on small gills and and bass, ( the normal catch in this place), but 2 18” walleyes supprised me.  A couple of loons were the only company I had while I was there. Lots of gills and bass as I expected just small in size.

      @Mike89 if I still had my traps I'd do a Crawfish Boil. Need some Cajuns to help me.
