De Nuck and Futz Duck Busters took to de NShore Marsh today,knowing full well dat ole Lady P might be springing some nasty fog on us and we used both the I-Phones plus Lowrance Depthfinder/GPS to safely navigate our way into one of our ole-time spots.Too bad my damn I-Phone choose today to act up and I was NOT able to navigate to the mallard pond I wanted to and ended up hunting RIGHT next to my Southfork,not such a bad thing since de ole Southfork pretty much camo'd out.Saw a big flock of scaup,not exactly my favorite waterfowl and did see and hear nice flock of greys that wanted NO part of my spread.Took exactly two shots at teal rocket dat shoulda been easy shot but I quickly turned easy shot into impossible shot(s)and only managed to waste 2 shells!!!Fog never really lifted and heard shooting coming from basically Lake shoreline,not sure who doing de honors nor what dey was shooting.Called it quits around 9:30 and on way back to launch,helped tow in hunters with flatboat(think dey miscalculated their gas tank!!!).Fellows we towed in had I think 7 ducks,2 scaup and 5 whistlers,not a bad haul given the terrible conditions!!!Guys we towed in recognized de ole Mandevillian and wished dem Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.Nuck headed to SW Texas,chasing ducks and ribeye in de sky,Sandhill Cranes.Hope he nabs some fine waterfowl!!!Wifey and I headed to Jackson,MS tomorrow gonna visit younger son in MS College Law School!!!
