I use to hunt out there quite a bit because I had family that lived on the lake. If you are going down there just to shoot ducks, go somewhere else. Especially if you don't have a boat. With a boat you can get to some better spots that you can squeeze limits out on. Hunting is better on the weekends (the lake doesn't get much pressure at the spots you need a boat for) because the boat traffic keeps the ducks moving on the main lake. Get there a day early and get your permit because they don't open early enough to get it the day of the hunt. Use to shoot pintails, wigeon, teal, and a few divers and got 1 or 2 mexican ducks.
I live 20 minutes from the lake. My buddy wants to get at some ducks seen out west without breaking the bank (he's from KY) and I would just be along to shoot a few and learn from him. I can procure a boat from a friend. Given that, do you think it's worth it?
