There is an exceptional fishery in S.W. Louisiana that closes every year for Duck season. Duck season starts this Saturday, so yesterday was the last opportunity for lurker Mike and I to make a trip to the area.

With the return of standard time and chilly temps, we didn’t head out overly early. We launched about an hour and a half after sunrise and made the long run into the marsh. It was a beautiful morning, a bit breezy but nothing unmanageable.

It only took us a few minutes to find fish and get the first few in the boat. It slowed down for a bit, then we started chasing schooling fish under birds with limited success, but ended the day getting a couple more fish in the boat. By the time we made our exit the wind had died and the big lake was uncharacteristically slick. It was a day much needed

All of the fish we caught were fat as fuck. I kept one for dinner, he had 2 small crabs, about a hundred shrimp and a baby speckled trout in his belly

That doesn't sound like you. Or did you just sleep in again?

It was somewhat of a last minute trip, and neither of us wanted to get up too early so we decided on an uncharacteristic late start.

That sounds excessively early.
