It'll be after 0800 but wouldn't miss the chance for some "Cold Duck" , a fixed blind one can walk to and a big jug of hot coffee I can't wait .

setting some longlines at 0'dark 30. unfortunately i'll have to pick up around 8 to make it to work on time, but we'll see if some divers work the spread early on. be safe everyone. don't do it fast, do it right.

Lew we shot a redhead up the river. Lots of divers moving around, but it's hard for them to see the spread before the sun comes up. Had to pack it in at 745 to make it to the office on time. Gonna give it a try again tomorrow, wind shouldn't be as bad. Gonna get warm and rainy this weekend so I'm trying to take advantage of this ducky weather. I'd invite you along but we'll have a full boat.

Went yesterday and killed a pair of mallards and a single drake woodie. Didn't go this morning as the water turned hard last night and was too deep to break a hole. Didn't see but about half a dozen birds anyway. Certainly not the push I was hoping for with this front Birds I did have left around Sunday best I can tell.

Ice.

Tried to sneak out this afternoon. Lots of ice on the Potomac and its tributaries. I didn't want to end up like those tourists who got stuck in Antarctica so I kept the boat dry.

With the swamp froze over I hunted a small pond, had 5 hooded mergansers swimming around my feet, one of them dove and popped up so close I could have swung my scatter gun like a bat and whacked em... Didn't see much birds but sure was fun watching those mergs swimming around singing braaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaw pip pip baaaaaa braaaaaaahhh! Gave em a pass, if I don't get any action next trip I'm gonna blast some mergansers, that's three skunks in a row.

5 woodies 4 ringers and 2 gadwalls is all I have shot this season. Where are the mallards going? They just pass me in 5th gear each morning laughing... I did see some ducks dive only to hit ice this am was pretty funny... They just kinda looked at each other and took off.
