What is the verdict on the eatability of diving ducks? I have had plenty opportunities to shoot Bufflehead, dosgris, ringnecks and a few others. Please respond on the eadable status of ducks other than Mallards, greys, widgeon , teal and Pintail.
If you have a good recipe for the divers please let me know. Could have filled limits with the divers but do not like to shoot something I am not.... Read More
I would like to start a post in regards to the just expired Teal Season. I personally had my worst teal season ever. I do think it was entirely due to Issac. I had a similar season after Katrina in 2005. I did not hunt near as much as in previous seasons but there just were not many birds in the Southeast part of the state.
I hunted anywhere from private leases to WMAs. I had one hunt where 3.... Read More
Looking for a good duck hunting video game. Please reply with your thoughts on a game you have and any pros or cons about it. Looking preferrably for something associated with Wii and that also includes a shooting gun of some sort.
The 1st split was very good to us. Limited out 6 out of the 8 trips with at least a 2 person limit. Our bag consisted of 85% greys and the rest GW Teal. We are mostly in a salt water marsh and we see mostly greys.
I am looking for feedback on the Escort shotgun line + or -. I looked at a 12 gauge 3' auto yesterday and for the price it seems like a great deal. Would prefer to hear from people that own one. I have had every shotgun I used malfunction at some point and time. Just want to see if there were any things to be concerned with.
Need some help from the experts oput there. Having limited success with the Mangrove Snapper. What is the best technique to fish them? Bait? Gear and set up? What is the best position of the boat? Should you get up current and chum into the rig? I have my drag as tight as it will go and still can not stop the fish from pulling into the rig. I am using 50lb power pro an 50lb flourocarbon....

Great day on the water with David Discon, Barry Dennis and David Landrieu. David wanted to break in the new boat and smear it with a little blood.
The plan was to head offshore out of Hopedale and go after some Snapper and Cobia. At 2:30 Saturday morning it was blowing 15 knots out of the WSW but was forecast to drop later in the morning. This has been the weather pattern for most of the summer.... Read More
We sometimes take for granite what the fishing is all about. It is not always about limits and size of the fish that we catch. It is about the memories from a trip that it is really about.
This past Sunday I made a late afternoon trip with my good friend Mike McMahon and his 3 boys Michael, Matthew and Christopher(Shark bite). My son David was not able to make the trip due to a prior commitment.... Read More
Fished early Saturday morning in Lake Pontchatrain with a couple of friends. Very little tide and just a little wind out of the North.
Started the morning throwing topwater in search of big trout. The area we fished has been showing the conditions for this bite. More tide would have made the situation better.
We stuck at it for an hour before the first blowup happened around 7am. The trout.... Read More
