lanco1,Thanks again,hit Fritchie on solo hunt,slept in tad waiting to see what weather would do,mistake as I was late setting up,saw nice flock of teal had single blaze by and had pair of mallards that had I been blinded up about 10 minutes earlier,mighta had excellent chance to nab both.Guys S of me decided to paddle around and they jumped up big flock of greys,took note of where they came from and went to and might make return trip tomorrow.Did not fire a shot,was more of scouting/exploring trip and all I had to do was to launch about 30 minutes earlier(took protected route whole way down and just about entire route back)and it was a chore getting under bridge construction on Ole Spanish Trail.Since I was paddling,I needed to take protected route and if there is decent launch nearby,could take Southfork.The ole launch where we typically launch 'rogues is useless for flatboats since impossible to pass under bridge!Thanks,again and got out just in time before rain started coming down!!
PS Did see guys N of me drop huge mottled duck,one of fine pair that soared over them and I did see handful of mottled ducks,probably in response to guys paddling out!!
