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.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
