Southeastern/Central Ohio Float Hunt

Postby Quack_Whacker » Fri Jan 18, 2013 11:00 am

Anybody had luck floating rivers during late season when the lakes aren't frozen over? I've had success on floats when the lakes and ponds are locked up but never tried it when they aren't frozen. Also, I tend to see more Woodies on rivers than other ducks. Is that the same for everyone else?

If you can put the right sneak on. Seems birds watch upstream more carefully at year end. Never see Woodies by the time all freezes up.

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking about a float trip this weekend to end the season and sneak some ducks from the bends. And yeah, I've only seen one Woodie since the new year.

I would like to float a river, but the danger involved at this point in the season is too much for me. I bet you will get into ducks though. Good luck!
