Has anyone ever tried duck hunting Lake Michigan on opening day of the season?

Just wondering if it would be decent hunting that early in the season?

It can be youll be seeing mostly mallards. That early none of the divers have come down yet and usually the offshore action dosent pick up until the ladder part of October. Only problem I've run into is fisherman fishing off the break walls i hunt an area thats actually in the city limits but legal to hunt as long as my feet are wet and i have fisherman all over both from shore and in boats not to mention just people walking the beach. So from my experiences its not worth my time to hunt there until later in the season.

one word, scout.

Truck scouting, internet scouting, copy cats, and picture scouting. Will never lead you to the experience scouting will provide.
