About Captain Sam Long (owner) in his own words: I was born and raised in the Lakes area and developed a passion for fishing at a very young age, spending a serious amount of time on the water year round. It seems I have always been given the gift to catch walleyes. I not only have a passion for my own success on the water, but also find it rewarding to help others develop a passion of their own. I believe God gave me a gift to find and catch fish and I will always be thankful for that. There is something about seeing the face on on someone when they reel in a fish. I have always been fascinated with the importance of a fishing guide so I take it very seriously. Theres so many different ways to catch fish with so many different tactics. I can`t wait to find what works for you and to help you catch some fish and see how important it is to pass on this passion from generation to generation.

Detroit Lakes Minnesota Fishing Guide Services & Charters


The Detroit Lakes area abounds with beautiful parks, lakes, rivers, hiking & biking trails and more . . .
Detroit Lakes, Becker County, and the surrounding area offers so many recreational and outdoor activities that it is difficult to fit them into one visit. With over 400 lakes within a 25-mile radius, and with beautiful rivers and streams (not to mention the Mississippi Headwaters), many parks and trails have been created to provide public access.

Parks, such as the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge, provide cross-country and snow mobiling trails in the winter– and even more trails for hiking and biking during the spring, summer and fall months.

You can also enjoy the natural beauty from your car. The Lake Country Scenic Byway is an 88-mile corridor that follows Highways 34 and 71. Along its route, the Byway uniquely spans three different types of geographic terrain.

“We enjoyed our stay at The Lodge in Detroit Lakes, Mn. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. We stayed in the Resort Room adjoining to the Retreat Room. It was very nice for our family so we could have access to each others room and to have use of a Kitchen. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and our son was participating in the Pine to Palm Tournament. Nice location to golf course & downtown. The rooms were clean and the amenities of having a dock for our boat and use of paddle boat & Kayakes was especially nice. We enjoyed the complementary breakfast; especially the waffles and pancakes.  The Ice water cooler was very refreshing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Lodge & will be back on any future trips to the Detroit Lakes area.”
