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.

Loves-Fishing Guy,

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!!!

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?
