Thanks Utahman and Gitchegumee. My wife and i just bought a cabin last year in Bass Lake by Windigo. I would like to try Windigo, but have heard you shouldn't eat the fish? I also have a snowmobile to get me out there, so that wouldnt be a problem. Utahman, maybe i am thinking of a different Sand Lake, but isnt this lake only 950 acres while LCO is over 5000 and Nelson almost 3000 acres? Im not trying to deplete your lake of all fish, was just hoping to get a fish fry from a nearby lake...

As far as travel on lakes its at the point were you can still give it with 4x4, but is a choir. Hit a drift and stuck. Like others said unless there has been truck trails its a tuff go.

Snow is very deep. I havent seen  that any roads have been plowed, not too many have been fishing it this winter. Unless you know this lake, its tough to know the good spots,  but most walleye arent keeper size any way. Unless you are close by and have  some type of vehicle to get you out there I wouldnt try. Its a big lake not small If you are coming up a long way I would go to Nelson or LCO. Snow is getting deep Try to find a lake with some type of plowed road otherwise it can be a nightmare to get stuck, if you go use chains on whatever you are driving. At this time of year I have to put chains on all four tires of my truck to not get stuck

Is this lake worth checking out for some eater wallys or pike this weekend? Looks fishable on the map, but have never been there. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

I was out recently and even though I didn’t specifically measure ice depth, it was at least 18”.  The recent cold snap with no snow cover really made more ice.  Didn’t see anyone else on the lake.  I drive a side by side UTV, but a truck should be fine.  I did hear from the local bait shop that vehicle traffic was limited earlier by bad conditions at the boat launch, but that was a while ago.

Fished the past week on Sand . Water temps started at 70 and ended at 68 very warm week. As far as fishing goes darn slow... panfish were non existant did not get a hit on minnows the few gamefish we caught came on nightcrawlers deep. With time on my hands did a little garbage pic up on town roads as I hiked....amazing what people throw out just lazyness, see Utahman, forum section, gripe site thread that says it all. As pic shows colors are startin to change.  All in all just nice being up north. One interesting note sittin out watching the lake along comes an Eagle and picks up a fish then lands in close by tree...a little later something falls out of the tree walk over.... the head of a Walleye...this bird was a much better fisher than we were
