Yes possibly the worse the weather the better the duck hunting (IMO), my best shoots have been in some nasty weather. High winds keep ducks from rafting up in the middle a lake.

No big groups like the end of last season, but still thinking about going out on Thursday with a buddy. The ducks do seem to know the safe part in the northern lagoon though. I have been seeing really good flocks flying high over head, but don't know what they are. Looks like more scoters but a little high to be positive.
Also please post your opening weekend pictures, I was unable to make it out but everyone likes to read post with dead duck pictures.
Cant help ya here been stuck workin all weekend.
