Big Stone Lake is 26 miles long and sits on the border of Minnesota and South Dakota.  Known as one of Minnesota’s top perch fishing destinations, our lake also has good walleye, bluegill, pike, and a few crappies as well!  Big Stone Lake is also one of the best lakes in the Midwest for shore and dock fishing with over 10 miles of public shore fishing opportunities!
