I was just up there checking water levels, I was going to launch my boat at sebewaing just to run north and south to see what the levels are like. They are Lower than this time last year IMO and it does not look promising at all. I did not even go out as I do not think I could even get near the shore line.

I hunt alot of open water for divers so as long as I can get out I will be happy although I do like hunting the northern marsh of wildfowl bar as well that's probably dry

I have a place on Sand Point and took a walk over to the south shore that looks out Wildfowl Bay. Water is very low, probably a foot lower than last year at this time. I sold my long tail mm last year and am beginning to regret it. :sad:

Went down to Pointe Mouillee and it is very bad, I mean spots where we hunted, the water was up the the Island but now we cant ever hard get a boat there because the water is so low down there. Many of our spots are either dried up or they are very shallow. Time will tell though. Hope for the best!
