There is Trumbull Lake about a mile north of Barringer. That is where
I hunt on the pheasant opener, usaully there is not to many out duck hunting on that weekend. Only problem with Trumbull is you cant shoot geese there its in the canadian refuge, and just across the road is round lake, and that is a waterfowl refuge. But the action has always been good.
Drove by the boat landing tonight at Barringer, and it did'nt look to bad, it is hard to tell without getting out into it. If you got a 16' boat it might be a struggle. Alot can change in a month though. I have seen it before where, it opened up a week before, or has blown shut that quick also. That is why I like my little 12' boat, can get about anywhere with it.
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work
