Woodland?

Postby Macklin96 » Fri Dec 26, 2008 5:31 pm

So me and the boys are thinking of hitting woodland tomorrow. I have only taken my boat there once and that was for teal season. Should i expect alot of mud or is it relativily easy for a 30hp long shaft to get through?

Well it sure was deep enough. Actually too deep. we went to blind 9 and it was 3 ft deep to about 2 foot from blind then a dead drop my depth finder said 18-25 ft. Decoys would not stay put even with 10 feet of cord. Ended up leaving after 2 hours empty handed. Didnt see many ducks flying but tons of geese

You got lucky with the water! Low tide you need a mud motor for almost 85% of the blinds in that area unless you stay on the main river. You would have had a hard time crossing the flats on a low tide. (Been there..Done that... Not pleasant!!!) Sorry about your luck with your decoys.

Don't give up. I hunt out of a 20' boat with a 115motor. There are plenty of blinds you can get to. I suggest you go Perch Fishing this spring and check out all the blinds.

Just about all the blinds on the flats and on the northside of the flats. Low tide at some there is NO water.
