Numbers are a bit above average, much better than last year.

Here's a link to the arial survey done by the Ohio DNR of the Sandusky Bay and Western Basin

You can contact the DNR about hunting up around the lake. The Northwestern part of the state has alot of good public areas that can produce great hunting opertunties for you and they may also direct you on were to hunt with your boat

thanks for the info...when does the season end? i used to hunt a diked marsh area around port clinton ( i think). we really never did any good, it seemed that the weather was either to cold (frozen over) or to warm. it really turned us off to hunting up there. i think we are going to try it again.

The north season ends Dec 31 for ducks and a day later for geese. There are several diked marshes up in the Port Clinton area. The largest of which are the Mallard Club, Magee Marsh, and Pickerl Creek. All three offer great opportunities. The Mallard Club is open to the public. Magee and Pickerel are both permit only sites. Permits are given out lottery style to each zone and you are only permitted to hunt in that zone. Opening days are about 50-50 shot of getting a draw, the rest of the season there are generally spots available at any time. There are also a few other smaller areas, some of which are diked and managed by the DNR.

It won't hurt to take the boat, but it really isn't needed. Most all areas of the marsh are wadeable, in fact most areas you will not be able to get a boat too unless you carried it in. Motor vehicles are not permitted past a certain point.
