If the bay water around Anahuac is anything like the level near West Bay, the birds will be skidding around on mud flats. These north fronts have consistently kept the water pushed out..

Was talking with TPW Biologist along thew coast and the above poster is correct about the northerns pushing or shifting the water south as well as the fact we just went through the Winter Solstice. But by next week the water should be shifting back inland. I'm planning on hunting the Coast next week when my buddy comes in from Wisconson for 4 days of Duck hunting. I may go over to Trinity bay area, if I'll do I post an update.

Tides in the West Bay areas are still wayyyyy out. May be some diver hunting off the open water somewhere, but the marshes are dry! :thumbsdown:

All through the holidays after finals were over I went home and limited out everytime except for two hunts where I shot 4 and 5. My last day to hunt was the day after Christmas and I shot 4 gaddies and 2 teal. I hunted one day with a guy I know that guides down by anahuac and he said they have done nothing but slaughter the widgeon off of East Bay and the geese you can't chase them out of there. I hunted Taylors Bayou and Hillebrandt by my parents house (close to J.D. Murphree and it's public) I also hunted Hankamer off of IH-10 but that stuff was private. Whatever you do when hunting Pace Tract or anywhere else on Anahuac NWR don't hunt on a cold front. North winds will always blow water out of the marsh, it's nothing new so be careful and good hunting.

Can't remember, what days is Anahuac open? Is there some public area that you can get to by canoe or foot other than the normal chaeck in route?

Wednesday Saturday and Sunday....Anahuac has Middleton Tract off of 124 going towards High Island. It's a walk though so prepare yourself and check it out during the daylight.
