    Haven't got over to that part of the state yet. Whats the water level like in Black Swamp? I travel a pretty good ways to hunt there so I can't scout as much as I'd like.

    Not legal and if ya have an outboard either have a winch, or prepare to sweat ur butt off pulling it most of the way back to the ramps.

    Smart man. Them big green patches is ducks showing up on radar. I thought I was one of the few who knew about scouting for ducks by watching the weather girl talk about the radar but I reckon the secret is out.

    Why yes of course! That rain right there will hold the water up in the Swamp until the middle of February. If you aren't launching at the float road on Saturday morning, you should sell all your gear and hang out with the wife at the mall.

    That should be lesson 1 in waterfowling. If ya can make it in and out of float road on a day after the rain swells up the swamp you are hardcore.

    LOL. You just gotta be able to get her on plane BEFORE you leave the launch and keep the rudder straight when she starts digging.
