Where to bag a Redhead

Postby C Kerley » Thu Dec 05, 2013 1:05 pm

I'm looking at my duck trip for 2014 and think I'm going to shoot for a Redhead. We get them here in southwest MO, but they're not super common. The last issue of Delta had a short article on Port O'Connor, TX. Anyone have any input on that?

Come to Rockport TX and you can get your two in the first 15 minutes after LST. Nothing but redheads down here this year.

WHERE TO BAG a REDHEAD??? Lower Laguna Madre...is "the place" to go for redheads and pintails...lots of different and good guides down there. Mighty shallow flats...and tons of different sea grasses add to the mix.

I've been stationed down there in Texas a few times in my career and back in the 1980's I found out that 80% of the population of North American Redheads winter over through out Texas' middle and southern Laguna Madre.

Good specks, black drum and red fishing along that whole tropical coast of Texas.

Where to bag redheads...... Manitoba, Canada we are one of the main flyways for the redheads before they head south, so we get the first crack at them, also the limit here is 8 .

There are a lot of redheads on the Great Salt Lake marshes as well.

If you want a redhead drake worth mounting upper/lower laguna Madre. I am no guide but, I could guarantee you a mountable drake redhead. Already had guys from New Mexico, michigan, and North Carolina come and get there redheads for the wall this season.
Plus we kill these pretty regularly.

I live here in NW Florida and we have a slew of redheads here. All you need is a couple dozen decoys and you can lay out a spread on the sound. Usually just a pair of waders will do for ya.
