Big Stone Lake is a border water between Minnesota and South Dakota.  Your SD or MN fishing license is legal no matter which side of the lake you stay!  Walleyes are the predominate fish of  Big Stone Lake - however there are nice populations of perch.  In addition, there are also some crappie, blue gill, white bass and Northern pike. We offer 4 large fishing docks for guests who opt for shoreline fishing versus a boat.

UPDATED 7/27/2014

PERCH is the word on Big Stone Lake these days!  We are seeing a lot of folks fish for what is biting and that is definitely the perch.  And the perch are cooperating!  Hot spot over the last few days has been the Manhattan Reef area fishing on the bottom with spikes or pieces of night crawler.  We had one boat fish it for about 2 hours and had a nice 2 person limit.

There are perch also coming off other "traditional" perch spots including Goose Isle, Grape Vine Reef, BayView area, all the way up to the Windmill Reef area and by Cramer's Resort.  Just have to find your spot and see what happens.  Of course, there is the unique technique of going where the boats are to set your hook.

We still get inquiries about the walleye and we can say there are a few being caught. Mostly in with the perch, as that is what fishermen are targeting.  Did have one boat specifically fish for walleye and by pulling a bottom bouncer/spinner/crawler combination in the Mallard Pointe area were able to boat three really nice fish with the biggest at 22 inches.

Still getting reports of white bass, largemouth bass, some bullhead, and a few crappie/sunfish combinations being caught. The dock fishermen seem to be doing as well as the boat anglers!
