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.

      I didn't find it, just passing the info of a post I saw on Craigslist. One would think if they could access the information, it would be a done deal.

      Any reports on Grindstone lake? What have y’all been catching and what size?
    • leech~~
      Couldn't you find any contact info or was the battery dead?

      You’ll like em.  And these temps are exactly the reason to invest in gear like that.  I just spent the entire day out fishing in mine.  Temp topped out at 5; wind gusts and snow.  Half the time in the open and half in a poorly heated flip over.

      Post on Craigslist that a person found a phone on North Center lake.....under sporting goods.

      Cars seem to be going to all areas of the lake.  Very light traffic.  I wasn't home this weekend so I don't know what was going on.

      Shiners are hard to find right now. If you can get smaller suckers those worked good.  I fished 32ft off edge of mud flat last weekend. Everything we caught was on Bobber or rattle reel. Tried everything from tinglers to rippin raps last weekend for jigging, no luck.  The extreme cold did not help.  I usually do good jigging. I usually fish 3ft off bottom that deep.  Every fish we did catch was over 25 inches. 4 total the whole weekend. Missed a few others. Rattle reels worked well. Orange glow seemed to be a good glow Jig.

      1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!

      Liberty beach 20 dollar weekend pass with free drink token lol. I ended going out of hunters to the mud flats last weekend.  Didn't see liberty beach sign until next day. Not sure how far there roads go out. Hunters was having problems keeping roads open due too cracking.  But they always had options to get in.  1 hour to get off lake Sunday as center road was closed.  Lots of people going out and some of the people were driving too fast on the roads. I was going 10 mph hauling my wheel house and had a guy pass me on way in with a tandem so... It is was it is.

      Thanks, guys.  I ended up going with the Striker Climate bibs and jacket.  Ultimately I wanted things with removable liners so I could use them in late fall and early spring as well, even as late as fishing opener.  I searched high and low for the Clam Ascent stuff, as I wanted the free boots , but nobody has the jackets in 2X or 3X, only the bibs were in stock.  The store in Roseville that sells guns and skis had 30% off all ice fishing clothing which made the Striker stuff a bit easier to swallow since Striker jacks the price up for extended sizes.  I ended up buying the Combat gloves too.  Haven't had a chance to use any of it yet, and probably not looking great with the single digits coming up later this week and plans on the weekend.  At least we're making ice!
