If your looking for a sleeper shack, Crawlerman Steve has a real nice one. Although you said in Wisconsin, I used his this past March on LBDN and hauled in a real nice 10lb 30" eye'. Google crawlerman charters.

There is a guy renting on lake Wissota this year for the first time. I think he has it posted on Craigslist in Eau Claire, here you go.

Here's what we are thinking.......... We have had a fairly large response (most thru private message) and it has been good. Everybody has thought our prices were in line and we now have quite a few people interested..... With that being said, we are planning to have two shacks ready for first ice next season. I know some of you wanted them this year but this takes time. Our guide is pretty confident about keeping people on either Perch or Walleye's and we have a few lakes in mind to suit most interests. Looks like we will move forward and hope to see you guys next season. Check back here for updates. We will post contact info here next fall.

It sounds fair, the fishing wouldn't be as good as the MN lakes, therefor the price is less, and its not always about catching a lot of fish. A lot of guides charge $200 or more a day and now you get a shack and guided spot for less then $200 sounds like a great deal.

Sounds like the start of something BAD to me. Wisconsin doesn't have lakes big enough to support an industry like that. And believe me if it was a money making business it wouldn't take long before others joined in. Tbe Bago chain might support it, but northwoods lake never. Structure is small and competition with other fishermen would cause huge problems with "Businessmen" locking up prime spots on relatively small lakes. Minnesota has huge lakes with varied and large structure as well as mid lake "basin bites" that don't require pinpoint location. Outside of the Bago chain Wis. doesn't have anything close to that.

I'll second reasonableness of 40-60, I'd be interested. I've wanted to do the sleeper shack thing but don't want to drive all over MN .

Director,

That pricing sounds real reasonable. In my opinion you will have no problem getting them rented at that price. Some people don't need all the bells and whistles, they just want the experience of a sleeper shack put on some decent fishing at a good price. If you get them out there let us know, I would have a group of guys interested in renting one.

I would be willing to pay $40-60 per person per day, that sounds like a very fair rate.
