Never really hunted here just Indian bayou when I was in college. Thinking about going tomorrow and finding some flooded timber for some mallards and woodies. I need some honest opinions. Is it worth it? Do I need my boat? Anyone doing any good? Any other helps appreciated. Thanks

scouting
I was there today scouting and found a few holes. A lot of people where out there hunting so I didn\'t go to some spots to ensure I didn\'t mess up anyone\'s hunts, but to the spots I did go to I spooked some woodies.

Crowded
Its pretty late in the season to figure these areas out if you haven't hunted them before. Just know that there is a lot more competition out there than there used to be. They cut a ditch into the middle of IB for duck boats which made access too easy...there are usually 10-25 trucks/trailers at this launch...less during the week and more on the weekend. This doesn't count the folks accessing it from the north and from the south. Not to say you can't go get a spot, but you better be early and you'll be shooting in the dark without knowing how the birds fly out there and how many are using the general area. Used to hunt out there about 13-15 yrs ago and it was nice without the crowds. Good luck and be safe.
