Can anyone provide any info on what resorts are left on Big Pine? We usually go up every August but couldn't find a reservation this year so will be trying Star Lake.

I've stayed at Big Pine Resort, Sunshine, Jungle Shores & they're all gone (either sold individual cabins or seasonal rentals or torn down for condos I understand).. I know Whispering Pines is still there, although I hear 4 of the cabins aren't rented but reserved for the owners.

We generally need 2 cabins when we go up (at least 2 BR with 3BR each preferred).

I'd like to try to get back to BP next summer (or even this fall for a long weekend), so any help would be greatly appreciated. The resort situation is really getting rough, and with the wives and kids along I don't want to stay at a motel and load/unload the boat every day.

Any insight on Star Lake in August would be appreciated as well.

Thanks

Try Golden Eagle, I know they have a Duplex cabins and 2 other cabins. I don't know if mosquito heights has any cabins. There is also another place on the east end south of Hamburger Hollow.
Hope it helps..

We stay at Whispering Pines. It is located on the north side of the lake. We just got back from there and I know they had some openings in August. Jungle Shores is now lotted off. They are going for $200,000+.

like Mn_mtn_cat said golden eagle is a good resort. they are more of an RV type deal but they do have a bunch of cabins, there is always something for the kids to do

this is just my 2 cents

Thanks all.. As I mentioned, we've got reservations at a resort on Star Lake this year so I'll probably wait until after we get back and make some calls for next year(assuming the Big Pine resorts won't take reservations for next year without giving this year's folks a chance at the same week).. Will probably try to hit one of them this fall as well, although after mid September it's pretty tough to find resorts open.

Thanks again for the info.

BTW, any insight on Star for eye's or crappie this time of year?

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
