Poor, out a couple of evenings this week and saw very few ducks another disappointing season!

Duck populations look pretty darn good, maybe better than last year. The weather looks (good) windy with a good chance of rain and T-Storms. I can deal with the rain, but not lightning.

Good luck

Seems like better local production than last couple years. The drying sloughs have in some areas concentrated the birds. My normal spots have numbers equal to or better than last year. Good Luck!

Wow, what a difference, N and E of FF on Tuesday and Thursday evening only saw about 100 ducks at best. My son wants to go out so I will go but my expectations are really low. You guys must be where there are some local pockets of ducks. Shoot-em in the eye!

We've scouted a LOT this week. As stated in another post, There seems to be pockets of ducks but nothing really great from my observations. As usual, some folks in the right areas will do fine and others won't see much. As a 50 something hunter, I've seen a lot of changes in numbers, habitat, wetlands quality, available food to attract ducks, ect. Certainly not like it had been in older times! We do ND also every year and have been for close to 30 years. While it still continues to be much better than Mn, our area has seen a significant reduction in birds.

I think we as sportsmen need to be proactive in educating ourselves to the future of our sport and what we as sportsmen can do to ensure future generations can enjoy what we have enjoyed.

Enough soapbox! Enjoy the opener and be safe.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
