Big Sand Lakes fishing specializes in largemouth bass, bluegill, and big black crappie.

The Chain has regulations while operating a motor boat and has a speed limit to protect shorelines and the Lake’s ecosystem. You can expect to catch Bluegill, shellcracker, bullhead catfish, crappie, and lunker bass at this location.
