The skies on Flake are like those of many lakes with regular haunts that each indiividual fish stakes out as its home territory. They tend to be fond of the outside weed edges in the 15-17' range and will migrate out over open basin areas and suspend in the summertime but not far from traditional structure. Look for those steep breaks, humps and inside corners of the weedlines. Evening and earlier mornings have been good as well as those early june nghts when there is a steady drizzle and light winds. Jerkbaits work well along outside weededges. Sit on the weedlines and fancast out into the basin. I start parallel at 9o'clock and work to 3 o'clock and move up the line thirty yards and work the area again. During the heat of the summer you can catch fish ona fairly regular basis speed trolling bucktails over the weeds and across the basin 3-5 mph and it is not unusual to get 3 or more fish a day this way. Don't be afraid to run right over the tops of the weeds with your bucktails. There are shallow holding fish during the summer too but they tend to be a bit more boat shy then the deeper fish. Hope this helps! You can e-mail me at parentfamily_5atmsn.com if you have more detailed questions.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
