Its getting Closer

Postby kg4yus » Sun Jul 23, 2006 8:55 am

With Early Woodduck and Teal Season on fast approach, has anyone gotten the itch?
I spent all of yesterday rewiring the runnning lights on the boats, pulled the hubs off the trailer axles and inspected the bearings, luckily all but one was good and all I had to do was replace the hub seal on the one that had the telltale milky grey color to the grease.

Built a blind frame for the newest boat over the past week in the afternoons after work. If I can ever find my digital camera I'll post some pics, it was cheap to build has a ratcheting design that ratchets up and locks the blind in place, pretty ingenious if I may brag a little.

Today I'm heading to my partners house to get his new 1642 Legend Craft boat setup, he's going to power it with a 25 Kohler longtail on Mudbuddy frame. It should serve him well.

Alligator season is also on fast approach and I spent a few hours riggin the harpoon tips with 1/8 steel cable to attach to the float line. Still need to go pickup a bangstick. Been scouting a few nights a week and located some big nasty's hopefully they'll be around for the next two weeks till season opens.

Well I have got the itch. Got a couple dozen more teal decoys for the spread last week and been tinkering with the boats also.
Did Daniel finealy get a boat for that motor? It served me well till I got the shorttail.

I havent even started with the decoys yet...

Daniel ended up getting a real nice Legend Craft 1642 from Sid at Fast Duck Motors. We mounted the motor yesterday and we took it for a run.

I had it on an 1844 GatorTrax. When the prop was new it would push it at a decent speed, but when the prop got some wear it was slow. How did it do on the Legendcraft?

A new prop on it and he'll walk off from me.

You wouldnt beleive how low the water is at his place, its a biatch trying to put over and haul out but it sure is some mudslinging fun while your in it. You ought to make a trip back up and hunt with us this year.

Blind frame built on the mud boat and grass attached, darkened up the grass quite a bit made it more a green than the dead brown color.
Decoys checked, rigging repaired and bagged.
All thats left is scout, scout, scout.

Heck don't stop at one or two shoot three or four for me. Went out and scout my normal teal holes this morning. The water is still very low up this way and most places overgrown with head high weeds. I did see a few bluewings and woodies. Also saw 5 whistleing tree ducks this morning, I have never seen any before in this area.
