sleeper trip now
The Service starts when you arrive at our parking lot. We will help you transport your gear into the Bombardier track vehicle and bring you out to a heated clean fish house. The holes are drilled, bait is provided and as soon as you get settled in, you are fishing.
Part of the fun is being left out on the ice on your own, but there is also security in knowing that a marine band radio connects you to the mainland in the event of an emergency – like running out of bait!

About our Sleeper Houses
Our sleeper fish houses are 12’ x 18’ and 12’ x 14’ with a vaulted ceiling for a spacious feeling. They are furnished with a table, chairs, and bunks to sleep up to 6 people. The houses have propane heat and solar LED lights. Every Sleeper house also has its own attached restroom – “outdoor biffy”.
For your cooking needs, each house is equipped with a propane stove and oven, dishes, pots, pans, percolator, cooking utensils, flatware, dish soap, and dish towels. We also provide clean water in 5 gallon containers for cooking, drinking, and washing dishes.
For those folks who wish to have electrical capability on the ice; we have a few houses with Limited Solar Electricity and we also have a few small generators for rent. These are reserved on a first come basis with a fee of $40 per day. For the folks that have their own small generators that wish to bring them; you will need a basic extension cord to plug your generator into the outside of the house. You may also want to bring a power strip and additional extension cord for the inside of the fish house as there is only one receptacle hardwired into each house for this use.
There are marine band radios in our equipment and in our sleeper houses so that you may contact us during the day. If you need to contact the Sleeper Office in the evening or after hours. Cell phones are the preferred method for communication.
