There are a couple spots on the other side of Boy Bay you can fish, Then I would head up to five mile then two points and a little farther up Portage on the west side and look for and weeds you can find any. But I would start every morning and end each night out on the rock piles, North Bar, West Bar, Pelican,Sub, Annex, Mokey, Big Rock ect, The structure off of diamond point is worth a shot, Uram Bay also holds some smaller fish and the shoreline just east of there can be good too, Pipe Island can also be good if you hit it right. The best weeds right now will probably be up in Sucker Bay.. Bright Colors and throw the kitchen sink at em.

Leech is a TOUGH lake in June and July, they may be on the rocks and they may not, I wish I knew more about Boy Bay but I honestly have never fished on the other side of Bear island.

I just checked my gps and the spot in Boy Bay is called teh Sheep Pastures and around Sugar Point..

Good Luck

i fished sheep pastures last year and it is shallow so dont go rippin through it with out checking some depth. if you go to the brevik narrows, south side of sheep pastures, there is a cabin on bear island green in color, work your way into the weeds as they hang out there too. good luck, wish i was there now.

    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?  
    • They are probably wired differently. I’ve seen this happen.    Actually I had a brand new 2015 Silverado 2500 diesel issued to me as a company vehicle and had issues galore with the factory wiring and the gooseneck trailer I was pulling. It was the biggest nightmare I’ve ever had and it was all with the factory Chevy wiring and integrated brake controller.
