Been reading the reports on here for awhile.Never fished any of the lakes in this area.Have fished a few around Park Rapids.Not knowing where I was going......I went out on Detroit today in front of the Pavillion.Caught bluegills as fast as I could get the line down.But they were on the small side.Kept enough to eat for supper.Nice to get out fishing again.

Hope to meet some of you out on the lake in the future.

Ken:

Welcome to the FishingMN family. You probably already know this site is full of good people with lots of insight and knowledge. I look forward to future posts and perhaps we will meet on the lake someday. Take care

Where are the bait shops around Detroit Lakes?

The gas station on 59 going south is decent in DL. I always buy bait in Erhard on the way to the Lake. They always treat me well and I'm happy to say they bought the bar and grill next to them and will be re-opening it soon. Always have to put a plug in for your favorite bait shop.

I prefer Quality Bait if I am fishing in the DL area. It is just north of the Pavilion, a couple blocks from Little Detroit. John is the owner and is a good guy. He can normally give you a couple ideas as to what and where. There is also Bud's in Lake Park right off hwy 10, but I normally don't go there.

What lakes have you tried so far Ken. My main lakes are the Lidas since I'm on south lida and Little Pine because I have a good freind on this lake. I have had good fishing on Mellisa, Sally and Big Floyd in your area in the past though.

I live 10 miles west of Fargo......so the only one I've tried is Detroit in front of the Pavillion.I've fished a few lakes around Park Rapids.....longer drive......and Height of Land and Little Toad a few years ago when my family spent a week there.

Haven't a clue on the lakes south of Detroit.Just what information I could get from here.

I like quality bait but I think Bud's in Lake Park is the best.

He is a good guy and his bait is very tasty at least the fish tell me that ...
