x2 on lake naming. Go check out the Louisiana state forum lower on forum home page. Most of the guys there are helpful. Be warned, from what I have heard about the nwla area, the duck hunters aren't always friendly. Good luck. I was at Ft Polk until a year ago. I hunted mostly SELA close to New Orleans, as I have family there. There are plenty of duck to be had and a couple guys on here in your area.
