Limits everyday since Texas has opened last weekend and expect much more to come with front hitting today. Little water so do lots of scouting.

Anyone know of any places to walk in on the Texas side? Also, how are the public boat ramps looking?

There's a list of open public launches.... Just google Toledo bend launches open... Far as a place to walk in.... I don't know of any..
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

I wouldn't expect anyone to publicly give up their easy to get to walk in spots. TB takes constant scouting to find birds which requires putting miles under the boat. Any of the places you can walk in to pretty much stay blown out.

The water is really low. There are only a few places to launch a boat but if its north of pirate cove i would not go in on boat. i hunted that lake three days since ducks season opened and everyday we killed a 5 man limit in 30 mins.

I wouldn't expect it either, but you never know. I used to walk in on some type 2 land in high school. Hopefully it's still holding water

there are ducks all over that lake right now. we saw 5,000- 10,000 saturday but only killed 32. the sad thing is not a duck tried to decoy or even worked the decoys.

Only 32? Rough morning. We have been the past two morning and killed 3 man limits both times. Lots of teal on the lake.

Why not get your lazy self from in front of a computer and put in the time to find out! Two weeks ago that place was a ghost town, now there is people everywhere, why can't people just keep there mouths shut when it comes to where your hunting, if you ask anyone that hunts with us, you'll prob be going on a wild goose chase b/c the last thing we do is tell where we're hunting. I was at a truck stop this am 40 miles from Toledo bend and this guy walks up b/c I was in camo and proceeds to tell me that "they been murderin'em on tb!" I just dont get it!

Do I know you? Me and my buddies been saying the same thing. It was a ghost town for opener with more birds than a hunter could ever dream of. The areas with birds have turned into parking lots and the birds are GONE. Loose lips coupled with people banging all day long at high birds have turned it from feast to famine.

baaawwwhahahahhahaha...thats what you people get posting weve got 3 limits every hunt....32 birds....5000-10000 ducks......ect. ect. ect........it was only a matter of time with posting comments like that before it was all over! If people want to brag thats fine but do not post things like north end of toledo bend hell for that matter even that you where on Toledo! Should just say NW LA on a lake......when a lakes 6+ feet low sure does shrink the huntable areas!

good luck the rest of the season....

Yea, dont think this forum caused it since 90% of the hunters out there are old good ol boys on golf carts and fourwheelers. The lakes down and easy to get to. When anybody can kill ducks like that everybody shows up.
I will admit though when I went there was about 10977665 other hunters out there. Ill take my spots up here. Yall can have that.

Toledo bend has always been crowded, depending on where you go. It's just worse now because the waters so low.

bbbaaaaawwhahahahahawwhwha....If you don't like what is being discussed on a forum, simply stop reading it. This forum was created specifically to discuss duck hunting on Toledo Bend. No one has even hinted at any specific hunting spot on the lake. Is "North end" not discrete enough for you?
