Been out on Swenson quite a few times this spring, have had mixed success. Tried morning, midday, and even the midnight thing. Have only gotten a few walleyes, with only two of them decent size. You seem to get a few crappies every time out also, but they are the sorting type, that is if you are planning on keeping any of them. Did manage some real nice bluegills one night out there. Fishing has been real tough so far this spring, I think we need some stable weather for about two to three weeks, then the fishing may turn on. How about yourself? ~~GOODLUCK FISHIN~~

Went over weekend and caught a couple very small Walleyes and some northerns, that is about normal for Swenson this time of year.

Just curious, how deep were you searching? The last time I was out there the eyes were in 5' or less of water. It seemed like if you went any deeper than 7' there was nothing on my graph either.

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
