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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
