Teal are showing up!!!!!!

Postby Barney#1 » Sat Aug 24, 2013 6:45 pm

Out fishing today and we saw a flock of 15 to 16 bluewings. I called them over closer with the safety whistle I keep in the boat :lol3:
Startin to really get pumped up for another season. I have added some new ghg pintail deeks to the spread and just itching to try them.

I haven't seen any yet. This last week I've been out at my local lake building blinds/ scouting almost every evening hoping to see some but no teal yet. It's good to hear that someone is seeing them! I can't freaking wait!!!

Did you catch any fish? I honestly think we are going to have a great season...I just got back from up North and everyone thinks they will have a hard early winter.

I stare at every body of water I drive by (which is a lot) in hopes to see a group of those bad boys working. Hopefully wont be long!

Went out for a ride in the boat today to check out some spots and saw alot of ducks. Mainly mottled ducks and lots of teal and even a pin tail and a few geese! Saw probably close to 200 teal and they were flying in groups of 15-20 and rafting up in one of my spots :biggrin: ....its lookin good this year!

I wouldn't mind having any of those three drakes on the wall. Went to check the dove numbers out this evening on the lease and saw 150-200 teal trading between crawfish ponds and flooded rice. Also saw about a dozen pintails. Looking like we're gone have a stellar year. This is all in china texas by the way.

Saw a few teal at the local pond, but the dove are everywhere in north east Texas right now. It's going to be a great year. Anyone else seeing the dove show up in force like up here?

Did a little scouting around my area today. I didnt see a whole lot. Could of been that it was at 1 in the afternoon.
Barney if you are able to get outta work during the week early we can meet up for an afternoon hunt.

Also is there gonna be another rambling decoy this year?
After scouting today im getting the itch for the season to start bad. Gonna check out a few more places. Hopefully they pan out.

Cool. I'm flying out the Kingsville here at the end of the month. Was wondering if teal were showing up yet. We will probably end up trying out Baffin bay if situation arises.
