Any news from Swede Grove?

3 posts in this topic

I am debating where to take the kids tomorrow, Swede for perch or Brewer for Gills. Anybody been to Swede lately? Are they driving on it? Any news is appreciated. Thanks! Smitty

wow, 130 views. I guess I am not the only one wondering about Swede. I ended up going to Brewer for Gills. It's to long of a walk for my youngest at Swede in the event that no one was driving out. The gills at Brewer were good sized and very aggressive. I brought home 18 over 7" ( 3 were 9") and 1 11" crappie. Lost another crappie at the hole and a few more big gills. 20 FOW, staight out from the fishing dock 75-100 yards. Waxies and spikes on small white or gold teardops. We only fished 2 hours, my 4 year old slipped and found the hole with his arm up to the shoulder..LOL. Good luck to all and a very Merry Christmas! Smitty

yeah i almost hit Swede this weekend but headed to Franklin. Everyone last yr was talking about the fish tasted bad out of there so decided against it. A couple guys i know did very well there this summer, some pics of nice eyes. They never kept anything. As for Franklin, after puching a bunch of holes we found a weed line along a ledge and were able to get a few eyes. Heading to Ashtubla (nd) on Wed. bro in law has been doing very well.

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to www.lcraonline.org

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
