Cross Point Resort S. Lida

Recommended Posts

chanfish

I am researching a new resort to take the family later in August. Want to try new spot. Any feedback on this resort? How about N. Lida vs. S. Lida for fishing? Any difference? Any other recommendations for this area? My wife is kinda picky for clean rooms updated etc. Need a good panfish lake for the kids also. Thanks,

Try Lake 5 Resort. Found on Lake 5. Great place, nice cabins, on a quiet, private lake that has some fantastic fishing. Little on the expensive side but well worth it. I work with the guy who would help you and he's top notch.

Cross Point is on a nice lake, and is a good fishing resort, but perhaps not what your wife would want. Nice, helpful people though.

I grew up on lake Lida and it has alway been a good panfish lake. I have never stayed at Crosspoint so I cant help you there.....

I have had better luck fishing for panfish on South Lida, near Maplewood State Park. There are several excellent walleye spots on North Lida..........

Check out the lida posts in the detroit lakes forum for resort phone numbers on the lidas...
The fishing is not as easy in august as it is earlier in the season but its not impossible either. Put your time in, the fish will come. Lake 5 might be a good choice, even fair hills if the bride is a little picky, pelican is a fun lake, lots of walleyes, northerns and the occasional muskie...Have fun!! Paul

thank you for the response.
hammer'em- is the boat going to be an issue with two kids and a wife? was hoping to take my boat but noticed you cant launch. only option is their 14 footers with electric motors, but..it really looks like a great place. how's the fishing from shore at 5? i could handle that if it was ok. pelican-fair hills looks like it would be alittle more kid friendly as far as stuff to do. thanks,

Actually, the 14 er' would be fine. The lake isn't rough or that large and the 4 of you could fish just fine I would think. Shore fishing is pretty good too. If you go there, bring your boat. I could tell you several lakes within a mile or two that would be excellent lakes also. Both panfish and walleye or bass.

Fairhills resort is also very nice and Pelican lake is one of the best walleye/panfish/pike/muskie lakes in the area. Honestly you can't go wrong with either. Very nice area. I love it up here.

Let me know if I can help you out. I'm looking forward to doing that soon someday!!!
