I think the closest thing to a resort anymore on Big D is the new "Lodge" on Detroit

I believe Deadhead is right, but you could look for a place around there on anohter lake like Long Lake by vergas or something like that. Or any other resort with a good beach for your family where you can haul the boat to any lake you please, and there are a lot of them and the fish are usually biting somewhere.

How far is Vergas from Big D? Also do you have any recommended resorts?

Thanks

Vergas is about 15 mintues from Detroit. I've never stayed at any resorts in the area so I can't reccomend any to you.

I think there are some resorts on Melissa and Sallie also.

Lake Crest resort on Long Lake in DL, just west of Wal Mart. It is on the North end of the lake, with the entrance of it off of Hwy 10.

Im just wondering why you are looking mainly on Big D, is that where you plan on doing most of your fishing. It just helps to know how close you want to be too Big D.

Do you have your own boat and motor? If so I would check out the newest resort and rv park in Minnesota, "The Cactus Resort and RV Park" in Perham, Mn. "The Cactus" is just minutes from Detroit Lake, Big Pine, Little Pine, Lake Rose, Long Lake, Lake Lida, Dead Lake , Star Lake , Battle Lake, Ottertail Lake Lizzie, Lake Crystal, Wymer Lake, and Pelican Lake and many others.

There are 7 golf courses nearby, an d restraunt ad lounge, bowling, a trap and skeet shooting range, indoor pool and sauna, and so much more.

The resort is having its open house on May 4th,5th, and 6th 2007. You will have to come and check us out. Its going to be a great place to stay for your weekend get-aways and vacations. Click on the banner above this page.

Good Luck and Fish On!!!

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
