Originally just a shack for beer, bait & burgers, Slippery's was made famous by the movies "Grumpy Old Men" & "Grumpier Old Men". Taking their usual liberties with reality, Hollywood named the bait shop "Chuck's Bait Shop", (in memory of Wabasha's former chief of police because he was such a regular customer), and Slippery's Tavern was placed elsewhere in town.


The existing facility dated back to 1979 when the original shack burned down, and Slippery & Gladys rebuilt the resort with boat rentals and a gas dock.
