You will be coming up H371. Right after you cross the new bridge on the new bypass, you will see H48. Turn left or west. Go about 1 mile or so and you will see the access on your right. Don't blink or you could miss it. If you get to the new stop light, you went too far.

Good luck. Nice lake and often overlooked.

Used to be a great lake. Used to get overlooked. Last two seasons, though, people have wiped out a big chunk of the previous fishery. Please, please, please, practice catch and release. Thanks!

Toad,

Isn't that pretty much par for the course on all the lakes around here? It is a shame but a reality.

We are on White Sand since it is so close to the house and convenient. We have managed two pike in about 4 hours on the ice. I take the 7 year old and the 5 year old and hope for action. Both released back. I remember growing up in ND and fishing all the time with my dad. We use to catch fish all the time. No pressure on those lakes back then.

Maybe some day it will go back to what it use to be. Just glad I can take my kids out and enjoy the time with them.

We lived on White Sand when I was a wee lad. My Dad fished it almost every day. All he ever really brought home was small Northerns and Bullheads. Nice clean lake from what I remember, though.

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
