Swedes Grove Report

3 posts in this topic

Just got home from a perch slaying on Swedes Grove. I as there from 9am to 12:30pm. Between 9 and 11:30 when the storm started I caught between 80-100 jumbo perch. I ran out of minnows so I started using some old berkly powerbait I had and they did not slow down fora secondl. I actually had ot quit using my second line because I could not keep up. most were 7-12 inches with 15-20 really fat hogs that looked more like a pop bottle than afish. it was fun. but as soon as the storm started moving they quit. I stuck around for another hour and nothing. Yee HAA. going ot head out again sunday am I think. IF you go head to the west end and fish in 10 feet of water right int the middle of the west pool. You will see all the other holes that have been drilled.

caught several this morning mixed in with the perchies. Caught 7 or 8. only 2 were keepers 15-17". rest were even below your average. they were 6-7". But that would indicate some natural reproduction going on there. I would say that is a good thing even though they want to lower the water level.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
