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

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Actually, merc has Verado and "four strokes" . I have seen a fair number of mercs on west end but very few verado which have a distinct silhouette.

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉
    • Horseshoe_Don
      All sizes.  no bullheads in the chain.

      My wife, son and I we're on Crystal Lake in Burnsville several years ago. My son was 14-1/2 yrs. old at the time, I use to let him drive the gravel roads up at deer camp all the time and let him back the trailer into the spot, he got pretty good at it. Anyway, back to the boat ramp at Crystal Lake. I dropped the wife and son off on the dock and waited my turn to load up...a local cop was at the ramp and my wife asked if it was ok if he backed in, he didn't mind.. vehicles were waiting and my son drops it in on the first try! Proud dad moment 👍👍

      That's how my dad taught me Tom! Got practice almost every night with the atv trailer when I turned 16 and could ice fish by myself. Once the summer rolled around a boat was a piece of cake!
