The duck hunting is excellent so far this season in the Mississippi River Delta out of Venice, LA. The birds are down in good numbers and the hunting areas have an over abundance of grasses and other duck feed. The hunting should only get better as the weather turns cold and sends more supply down the flyway our way. My guests have harvested Gadwall, Pintail, Widgeon, Mottled and BW Teal. The fishing has been outstanding as well. The Delta is loaded with redfish right now. These fish are cruising along any rock jetty. Live cocahoes, dead shrimp and various artificials are all producing fat Venice reds. The trout are a bit more challenging, but will soon fall into the fall/winter time pattern. The river is low and the water is turning a nice green color. The migration is on for both waterfowl and fish. Don’t be left out of the hot winter action! Good luck.
