Yetti Sleeper Ice Shack Rentals

Welcome to Big Fish Encounters Sleeper Shacks!

No longer are you renting or buy from someone that hasn’t used the product – we have grown up ice fishing in Wisconsin for over 30 years. In that time, we have successfully catered to hundreds of night stays on the ice giving our customers great fishing memories. We carry and rent Yetti brand fish houses as they are light weight and built to last. The customized layout that we provide in our rentals and recommendations we can provide towards your build is sure to get you what you want for all seasons of fishing. You can explore before you buy by renting or come out for a tour of our shacks.

Rentals – Try before you buy! 

Offering incredibly comfortable shacks, quality fishing and even a bit of knowledge. Our guests arrive via shuttle in our Ranger from shore to a warm shack with holes ready to fish in the beautiful Hayward and surrounding areas. The propane for heat is supplied each shack includes a generator with gasoline and a restroom with RV Toilet.

We offer multispecies spots to make the most of your trip, during the day you will have a chance at bluegill, crappie, or perch as well as Pike and Bass. When the sun goes down the walleyes typically move in and set lines with a light or alarm to notify you of a bite is the go-to but jigging will also produce! During colder times of the season hole covers are recommended to prevent the hole from freezing in and not fitting that next big fish through.

We strive to provide a comfortable environment during your stay with a focus on your fishing experience. We have a great track record of a comfortable and fishy environment – responsible harvest is key to conserving our smaller lakes. We encourage you to enjoy a meal of your catch while keeping this in mind.
