Terrible couple of days

Postby LBeinhaur » Tue Oct 30, 2007 6:59 am

Anyone been seeing many ducks???
I have been out every day since Saturday and have hardly seen any birds down at Dead Creek......
Maybe the cold snap moved them out????

We only saw two ducks Monday morning, seems like some were pushed out.

Sunday down in Charlotte it was terrible. I only saw 4 mergs., I heard a lot of geese flying, but never saw them. Other than that I think I saw 2 or 3 ducks flying, too high to even tell what they were.

I didn't see any in any ponds either, I wasn't out that long anyway.

I have only seen a few Canada's down by Dead Creek lately.
Seems they have headed out along with a lot of the snows and ducks. I think the cold snap sent them south
I spoke with the guy that runs Dead Creek this evening and he seems to feel the same way.And I don;t hink the ducks and geese have started the BIG migration yet. Been too warm. Remains to be see I guess.

Went out lewis creek two weeks ago. 14 foot aluminum with a 15 horse motor. I had to pick up the motor out at the mouth. I'm not sure if its come up much with the rain we got last saturday.

The mouth of Otter wasn't any better if you're trying to turn left at the last channel marker. I reccomend going past that buoy 20 or 30 yards before heading south.

I would imagine the lake level has risen enough with the rain to get out there.

I didn't see any divers. I was there from shooting time until 8:15. I decided to bag it and go jump shooting. Glad I did, as I got that Turkey anyway.
