I've heard that lake lanier gets a few thousand ducks in the early season. Everyone thinks they go down to oconee by the late season. Those lakes are huge and you'd have to scout, but they are big water and therefor tend to hold several huge flocks throughout the season. hope this helps

I dont know what way you want to go but I here there are a good number of birds on clark hill. I do not hunt the big water there I have hunted up the river a few times and had a little luck. The birds on the big water at seminole are rafting out in the deep water or timber. You need a layout boat to get to them. I personaly will not get in a layout there to many bass boats going 70 mph. Sorry if I did use a gps I would keep that to myself or ask you to bring the breakfast opening day next year to OUR new spot. Good luck and safe hunting.

Hunted in a layout once last season.....it was on a foggy morning and a bass tourny was going on, (thanks bbbb). I was very worried. MLB -VS- Bassboat wouldn't be a fair fight.

I'd be more worried about other hunters trying to rally birds or being shot by some yahoo trying to sneak up on the long-lines 'cause they wanted to water swat a diver.






We don't hate peopel knowing or coming BUT do hate it being advertised as a duck mecca, some good guys come but more bad hunters come.........I'm sure your a regular and understand.We don't mind helping out but it's done in private. Most of us have met other hunters at the landing, on the water, in walmart and tons of other place and helped them out about the lake BUT we will never give out GPS, tell spot or anything what will ruin the places we hit on a regular basis. The snowball effect.........next thing you know you rubbing elbows with "jimbo and his crew". Hunting divers is different than puddle ducks anyway, they're in one spot one day and the next day they're gone.

It's sad but true, give someone an inch and they take a mile....BUT it's not true with everyone. I've enjoyed meeting a lot of nice guys on here and have spoken personally with most of them outside of this board and I don't mind one bit about picking up the phone to call them about down here.

I don't hate anybody going down there. I just don't want them to be disappointed when it sucks.
I was honestly just trying to give him the best information on water around him that I could where he would have a reasonable chance of shooting some ducks.
