SECOND SPLIT OF DUCK SEASON OPENS TO BRIGHT DAYS AND LITTLE WIND
On a scale of one to ten opening weekend was about a 7. Depending on your blind location you had the opportunity to smack a limit of ducks or spend your time watching for ducks to decoy to your spread. During the split our marshes were holding huge amounts of ducks but some decided to stay on the roost ponds over the weekend. Our season could use a good cold front norther to move the birds around.
Here are a few pictures from over the weekend and you can see them all by clicking here: Photo Gallery
WEATHER HOLDING FOR GOOD CATCHES OF TROUT AND REDFISH IN THE LAKE
Catching fish has been as good as the weather….. SUPER….. Limits of both trout and redfish have been coming to the cleaning table most every day that we have some fishermen out. Captain Travis Spicer reports good catches of redfish on the east side of the lake and limits of trout in west cove on the south back. Live bait is still available and has been the best. When live bait was not on board soft plastics were working very well. The water has been very clear at both locations and working a Hackberry Hustler under a cork was working very well. Glow and chartreuse worked very well.

3/4 cup Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
1 medium orange or red pepper, cut into 2-inch-long strips (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 small onion, cut in half and sliced (about 1/4 cup)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
4 cups romaine lettuce or Iceberg lettuce torn into bite-sized pieces
2 large tomatoes, thickly sliced
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Grate 2 teaspoons zest and squeeze 1 tablespoon juice from the lime. Stir the lime juice, lime zest and garlic in a 2-quart shallow, nonmetallic baking dish or a gallon-size re-sealable plastic bag. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning the shrimp over several times during the marinating time. Heat the broth in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Add the pepper and onion and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the shrimp and marinade to the saucepan and heat to a boil. Cook until the shrimp are cooked through. Stir in the cilantro. Season with the black pepper.
Serve with your favorite Homemade Ciabatta Bread or saltine crackers
My Thought – – – – Eggs served on a hubcap because there’s no plate like chrome for the hollandaise.
