Has anyone had any luck catching a few late night walleyes in a sleeper house? Always nice to hear those rattle reels going late in the night.

Last year we stayed in a sleeper house hoping to snag a late night eye or some pouts. After dark it shut off and never marked a thing and never got a hit on the rattle reels. Honestly it's hard to believe marking and catching fish all day then just nothing 30 mins after dark.

Always worth a shot though if you don't mind sleeping in an ice house. Easier to start fishing in the morning when you are already basically set up!

Same story every year.If you don't fish after sundown or for 20 minutes you won't catch anything.In deeper water 20+feet it's hard to get fish to raise off the bottom.Have caught fish in 30+feet all hours of the night.Just not fast and furious.Now if you can be quiet and set up on some structure in 12feet or shallower you can have some real fast action.Again it's not a given....you have to get wet to get bit.(just your line and lure).....good luck don't fall in!Now go get em!!!!!c63

Yep stories like that is why we tried a sleeper house. Just wasn't meant to be as we got zero action. A few pout here and there would have made it worth it but the lake just shut off for us.

We've never done very well after dark on LOTW, however, we always book to either stay in a sleeper or with an outfitter that allows you to come and go to your rented house as you please (Adrians). We've had great early morning bites an hour or so before sunrise that you would more than likely miss out on if you are being run out by bombardier and at the mercy of the operations hours. Nice fish Ret-ro!
