Get someone with a mud motor and you can put a hurtin on the waterfowl on the low end of the tide. Of course you cant be in a hurry to get outta once the tide bottoms out (esp blowout tides) Hunt thru the ebb cycle let the rising water ease your path. Always be careful exiting your boat/canoe at creek edges, they will suck you right in. No vegetation or root matter to support you. The mud is generally 3-4 deep underlaid with sand, and every once in a while someone gets stuck and rescue has to come extricate them. Sure hate to have that happen with rising tide!
While the tides can run hard, when paddling I find fighting the wind to be more of a chore. Choose your days and it can be a great experience, hardly ever as crowded as coastal.
PS: Dutch, saw your post at another site, I think your hunt partner is giving you a giant hint with all the "jewelry" she has been collecting!
