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.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
