A Sleeper Fish House Adventure from Last Year

There are many ways to enjoy ice fishing on The Walleye Capital of the World.  One of the adventures enjoyed by many is staying overnight in a sleeper fish house.  Both resorts and independent sleeper fish house operators provide the opportunity to experience staying overnight on the ice.  It’s not for everyone, but for many, it is just what the doctor ordered when the goal is to get away from it all and have the opportunity to fish 24 hours a day.

There are many types and sizes of sleeper houses, but most often, a bed, strong heater, cook stove sometimes with a oven, bait and rest room facilities, which do not include running water, are included.

Planning for meals, sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, evening activities, beverages, camera gear, cell phones and your fishing gear is part of the experience.

A wide variety of people enjoy sleepers.  Families, couples, groups of friends, girls weekend, and bachelor parties are some of the groups who enjoy short term living on the ice.

Last year, I had the opportunity to experience a sleeper fish house with my daughter and a friend.  Daisy and Cody had never experienced or slept in a sleeper fish house before.  We enjoyed good times, good fishing, a variety of good food and made memories that will last a lifetime.  We still talk about our trip and plan on doing it again this year.  A tradition has started.  Check out the video of our sleeper fish house adventure, full of plenty of fishing activity!
