$100 Reward!! Big Swan Theft....

5 posts in this topic

Information needed, reward offered. I am reporting the theft of a:

- New Cabela's heavy duty trifold atv ramp

- 1990 Ford pickup tailgate. Gray with paint pealing off.

These two items were stolen from the Big Swan North landing between 3 - 6:00PM, 12/23. Anyone with information should contact the meeker county sheriff. I will pay a $100 reward for the recovery of these items. Any help would be greatly appreciated in recovering these items. Many people were using this landing, please report any suspicious activity during the time noted. My truck was parked at the far east end of the lot.

Fishing was a little slow, managed to catch a couple of crappies. Just bummed out about the stolen items.

Good luck fishing!!

I wish I could help you out here.... I know how you must feel. I've been in your position once or twice and I can tell ya it's no fun!!

I used to fish Big Swan quite a bit in my youth. I still have family in the Dassel/Kingston area. Know any of the Dille clan?

Good luck in your search...

Ho Ho Ho!!

Thanks for the replys. The law enforcement lead investigator contacted me yesterday with some additional questions. Just maybe, one of the criminals has loose lips. This is one ship that needs to sink!!

I just realized the criminals also stold a spud bar or ice chissel, with the ramp and tailgate. The spud bar is approximately 5' long with a 4 - 5" hand ring on the end.

From now on all my equipment will be chained and locked at a minimum.

Good luck fishing!!!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
