Can you get on Swan Lake by Nicollet with a outboard?

Get ready to get ran over by go devils and hyper drives, outboards are running around but I have seen a few guys blowing smoke out of them from clogged water pumps.

don't listen to all the hype about mud motors, i hunt swan about 5 days a week, with a 25 short shaft, and have had very few problems this year. The south part of South bay is chuck full of weeds which makes for a slow go, but other than that i'll blow by any surface drive. shoot em up, gettin should be gettin good

I have not hunted it in about 5 years but there were plenty of people running outboards, you have to be logical and not try and run where you can't. I wouldn't do it in the dark the first time. The majority of places I hunted on swan and had good luck were via canoe where I would paddle then drag it across a bog then paddle more. There are places where no motor outboard, longtail or surface drive can't get to, find these places there will be birds but it takes a lot of work
