Found a very promising NON-COMMUNITY spot in Honey Island Swamp today and might tag along trusty baitcaster for retrieves as sloughs out there swollen big-time.Have game plans in place for local hunts,most of which have been total busts and did spook ton of blue wings yesterday,they just did NOT return and the mallards did NOT want to play as well!!Good luck to all,can't wait for Arkansas trip latter part of this month and GB3 and I chatted quite a bit about the lack of local ducks,reasons behind it and guess guys gotta do what dey gotta do,even if it involves hunting a neighboring state!!!Hurts bad dat the local duck scene horrible with more than adequate feed,everything a duck could want or need and very pitiful results from just about everyone I have to chance to interact with.Hope Arkansas treats de Nuck and Futz duo to some greenheads,widgeons,specks and snows-got report from GB3 dat dey gots hundreds of ducks and geese,not all willing to play and hope when de Nuck and Futz team goes up there,we gets a chance to exercise population control!!!Got plenty of shells!!!Lacrosse new waders more than incredible-walked my booty off today in Honey Island Swamp and did not see too many woodies but found where they tended to want to fly!!!Dat is big part of Woodie equation-just like other ducks-being where dey wants to be vs where you want them to be or where you want to be!!!
