Lt. Keith Van Dyke with the Otter Tail County Sheriff's office, said they found Michael Blake fishing from a pontoon boat about 50 feet from shore, the AP reported.

Blake said he didn't think anyone was at the summer homes that surround the lake, so he thought it was OK, Van Dyke said.

Blake was charged with gross misdemeanor indecent exposure, the AP reported.
