Normally we stay in Alexandria on the Chain, but I’ll be darned if all the resorts are booked up(there is one more option(2person cabin away from the lake), so I’m still up in the air). What we’re after is something north of the cities with nice affordable cabins, sand beach for the kids, and great Crappies and Bluegills for Dad and the family. A relaxing, not die hard fishing vacation.
I’ve heard Osakis had huge gills but don’t know about crappies? Or does anyone know anything about the Detroit lake area? Any info is appreciated. I probably should unwillingly shoot for staying out of the bush with the family however.
