Any news from Swede Grove?

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.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.
