$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 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!!!

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
