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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
