The ducks looked thin on Friday while dressing up the blind. To our surprise they showed up on Saturday, and the Mire Krewe and I took our 4man limits. Tailed off on Sunday, taking 11 birds. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s great to shoot big duck with majority of ours being greys and picked up a few mottled, widgeon, and pintail. Heard plenty of shooting Saturday, but flight slowed down around 8am; light all together Sunday. Overall the reports were mixed, some did well while others were lucky to get 1 or 2 birds. Good luck this season. ShootÃ¢â¬â¢m up.
The high water had us pushed out of the lease in Delacroix. Managed to find a few teal bouncing around the public options on the Northshore. We were able to take several limits this year, but teal numbers did drop as the season went along. Hoping this is an indicator of big duck season. Goodluck!
Make a quick trip to the Chef this morning. In comparison to other marsh habit in Southeast Louisiana, the Chef just looks health and always has plenty of grass that provides the gin clear water which is my favorite ingredient for sight fishing Reds. TodayÃ¢â¬â¢s water wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t the best and as I meandered deep into the marsh, I stumbled upon a wooden cross with a message. It is a true tribute to a Father and an Outdoorsmen and I was instantly transported back to being an 8 year old boy on my first duck hunt. This will bring a tear to you eye. Happy FatherÃ¢â¬â¢s Day. ShootÃ¢â¬â¢m up!
