Duck hunting lake Ray Roberts

Postby landon__odell23 » Sat Nov 16, 2013 8:05 pm

Looking to hunt Ray Roberts over thanksgiving week. Wondering if anyone had some good spots that they'd used before. Shore hunting. I understand people don't want to give away any honey holes on public land, just a general area of where some good hunting is. Only get to go once maybe twice a year. Looking to hunt the northeast corner of the lake - off of the 922 bridge. But open to any suggestions. Thanks!

Also, I know the "get off the computer and go scout" comments are coming. I'm in school all day and my dad works. Gonna try to scout over thanksgiving break if we hunt later in the week. Once again thanks!

I could give you every area I have hunted in the past 4 years and it wouldn't matter. Scout a day or two in advance to see what area the birds are using at that time. Due to the hunting pressure the pattern on the lake change often. That's about as much help as anyone is going to give you on locations. Get a map and start driving. Good luck!

I told my boss I didn't have time to work but if he would just give me the money I'd sure appreciate it.

Yet you posted anyway as if you thought none of us have any damn obligations that keep us from scouting, therefore we’d agree it’d be ok for you to lake name and cyber scout.

I can tell you where to go, but you'll need a layout boat. You'll also need at lease 20-30 dozen decoys, and some long stakes for the 30 Mojo's you'll also need...floating Mojo's could work.

In my experience with duck hunting the deeper open water is better. You may think I'm being dishonest, but I'm not. The most ducks I've ever seen on any body of water was out in the wide open middle...you can ask anyone that's hunted long enough and they'll confirm what I'm saying.

You may not get em every time out, but if you catch the migration just right it's like nothing you've ever seen. I can only assume that when the big groups are flying south they need to rest...I've seen days where thousandsssss of ducks funnel in flock after flock right out in the middle of open water. They don't have any pressure from hunters out there...ducks are smarter than ya think, and they gotsta get rest every once in awhile.

I think that you could witness this next Tuesday...you have to be ready because they'll be gone the next day. Sounds crazy, but true...you'll be disappointed if you don't go try it. It's worth all the money you'll spend getting ready.
