Now to recap the first split. OK. That's about all I can say. It got real tough from the Monday after Thanksgiving on. Duck numbers greatly declined as temperatures rose and weather stayed the same.
Ditto for us too. I have noticed the birds that typically stay onshore have moved to the middle of the big lakes and bays. Mechant, Lost, Four League Bay and Bay Junop all have very large concentrations of birds on them. Friday afternoon, we could hear the greys, wigeon and pintails calling while drifting Mechant. Mudboats would run through them and they go right back down, like they do on the refuge at Catahoula.
