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!!!

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..
