Swift Fishing League completes 12th season

The Swift Fishing League started in 2009 when a group of guys got together and thought it would be a great time and more motivation to get out fishing every week around the area.  Not even the COVID-19 outbreak could stop the Swift Fishing League from getting in its 12th straight season this spring.  We’ve been covering the Swift Fishing League for 12 seasons now in the Monitor-News, and readers continually make positive comments about the fishing league and how much they enjoy reading about the fishing in the area.

Coaches also affected greatly by missed season

The canceled high school spring sports season was tough on everyone, especially student-athletes and parents, but another group of people also missed out on another 2-3 month spring sports season; the coaches.

Until the season was officially called off, the coaches had to prepare for a season that never was.  Schedules were prepared, practices were planned, some opening practices were held, and contingency plans were developed.  All that work for nothing!

Some of the spring sports teams at Benson and KMS were expecting great seasons.  The Benson-Hancock softball team was set for a great year, while the Benson baseball team looked to be improved from last season, and a group of athletes on the Benson and KMS track and field teams also appeared set to earn berths at state.

Big Shots hold off Quarter After for Swift Fishing title

The Swift Fishing League had the final event of the 2020 season, Thursday night on Lake Reno between Glenwood and Alexandria.  Usually one of the top scoring lakes of the year for the league, this year’s bite on Lake Reno hasn’t been great recently, and that trend continued for the Swift Fishing League teams, who managed to measure 10 walleyes, but no northerns.  The largest fish for the night was a 25.5” walleye, caught by team Quarter After.  That dandy, plus another 21.5” catch got them the win for the event with 13 points.  Second place for the night with 10 points was Hot Shots, which measured a bag of 2 walleyes, 22.75” and 18.5”.  Soil and Oil got third place with 2 walleyes at 20” and 15”, worth 8 points.
