SEPTEMBER IS ENDING UP WITH A BANG

As September ends with not only good fishing we ended our early teal season with some really good trips to the marsh. In the short 2 week time our hunters managed to harvest just fewer than 450 of the fast flying ducks for the picking house. Our daily average was a very respectable 10 birds per blind.  September is always a great month to be outdoors chasing alligators and limits of fish on the lake. What our system could use is a fairly good cold/cool front to move the rest of the fresh water out and start the white shrimp dumping out of the marsh. Catching has been good with limits of smaller trout coming from working birds on the south end while chunking soft plastics on a lead head under a cork. The bigger trout are being taken using live finger mullet on the bottom. We still have a few opening for the great month of October so call toll free at 888.762.3391 and check availability.

My Thought

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses - - but is run by idiots.
