Reply
Bayoubob and me and my older son hit a few ponds in Honey Island Swamp,had a gent paddle past us not sure if he had earplugs in as my older son tried to ask how he was doing but got zero response and we wanted to alert him dat he was headed directly for where Bayoubob was hunkered down!!Legal shooting came and went and we did see high-flying pair of woodies,then saw two separate pairs look like they wanted in,had nice flock of four look like they wanted to buzz decoys but they went down in general direction of Bayoubob and about the time we were grabbing quick cup of java,what looked to be pair of mergansers buzzed over older son and I then we spotted nice flock of what actually appeared to be mallards but they musta had their ear plugs in securely as we both hit em hard but they kept winging in to wherever they wanted to land.On a good news front,spotted gent fishing and he made exactly ONE cast and nabbed small sac a lait then when we were headed back to launch,saw him nab fine sac a lait,guess older son and I gonna tag along micro-lite poles hoping to nab some fat slabs,can't beat dat,fishing from de duck blind!!!Got parts for steering mechanism being shipped,hope to get ole SouthFork back on water early next week,headed outside to tackle fun chore of extracting stuck steering wheel(do have a nice assortment of professional wheel pullers,surely one gonna do de trick)!!!Next wood duck trip,gonna be blast n cast!!!

We ain’t seeing enough birds to justify going the remaining days. Good luck to all out there.

Yep decided to get Wifey to drop me off on deer lease early this am made the 10 min walk to stand and mighty comfortable in tree stand she and I built many years ago. Used to take small TV with me to catch play off games and really disappointed in yesterday’s Saints Bucs game. Oh well can’t win em all and had nice run this season⚜️

Very similar hunting report as last weekend. Two boats went out Saturday morning with very low tide and 38 degrees. My blind shot
2 dosgris and the other blind shot 2 dosgris.

Sunday morning a friend and I shot 4 dosgris with similar conditions as Saturday. Did not see a teal or grey duck all weekend just divers. No vegetation in the ponds no good ducks.

Mande, if ya need a change of scenery, go hunt my stand. Haven't been there in weeks due to road condition, but had nice 6pt showing up and quite a few spikes. Feeders should still have corn.
