Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

I got Sinusitis of all things and was all but dead until I went to Urgent Care Friday. Meanwhile the rain started at about the same time so my fishing was sabotaged either way. I made it back down there yesterday all excited and left crying lol! The water level was fine but the water was the color o...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

Did ya notice how it didn’t take to much asking to get me to tell the story lol! I didn’t mention that I threw all the Bass back. I normally throw the double hand sizer Redbreasts back but I kept the big boy today.

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Of course...I’m among the cheese off the same block here (mmmm cheese grits). I got there with a can of worms because while I can usually catch all I need with lures, I wasn’t going without the sure thing in a place I hadn’t fished in in 25 years not counting the occasional trip...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

Well boys I went and it was EPIC! Fish fry in my near future. If I told you the whole story you’d think I was lying though.

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

BtK towards yes...straight to no. The walk on the beaten trail is close to 2 miles then you have to cross the river at the bridge for what appears to be a tad longer walk. The road on the other side appeared to be fixed also but of course I haven’t seen for myself up close yet. I’ve decided I’m goin...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

The 2 main gates to the forest I mean. They have been open every time I’ve been and they have a sign that says daylight use only (or something to that extent...don’t remember the exact words). O well I doubt anybody comes along and closes them and I doubt I’ll get trapped in the dark or whatever.

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

1 more question that will sound dumb but here goes. Do the main gates stay open? I’m assuming they do like most places and the sunrise to sunset rule is done through the honor system. I don’t plan on breaking that rule or any others, but I’m asking in case something happens. I also wouldn’t go if I ...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

So then the boundary is somewhere in between Natural Bridge Road and Horn Spring. I found the State Forest map online but it was pixelated and it looked like it was done halfassed anyway. But anyway I guess that settles that. I can paddle or walk legally. I like it. It’s doable as it is for anybody ...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

I’ve went back Monday and got straightened out. The day of my above post the yellowflies were so thick and it was so hot I flat out couldn’t think straight lol! They’re just that thick. So anyway I went back with long pants and plenty of water. The road I was on was the old entrance to Horn Spring f...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

I spent the day in the Plank Road Forest today and I think I made it very close to Horn Spring. Google Maps indicated so and while Google Maps has s*** the bed in the woods with me many times, what I saw with my own eyes indicated I was close also. I snuck down 1 of the pigtail roads and came to som...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

I’d simply like to see the spot. I had so many fun times there as a youngun but would never find it on my own especially with the bridge gone (I was told it’s literally gone).

Re: Time to get the boats going..

I’ve looked into it from several different sources. The actual transom repair is way different than basic fiberglass repair. I do think I could do it...but I better just wait and get it repaired lol! What’s even more unfortunate is that I haven’t used it that much anyway. Unless you’re going lake fi...

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

Yes! The bridge got burned but if you went over it then then my old man wasn’t the last one. You have to show me where it was 1 day!

Re: Would it be crazy to use a duck boat on the flats?

Might as well dump this here. Has anybody seen any mullet anywhere besides way out in the flats? I’ve been to my 2 favorite mullet fishing places (Nutall Rise and Newport) twice and seen very few. Today at Nutall Rise I seen 0 . And I had 3 times as much chum in the water as usual, seeing how I simp...

Re: Time to get the boats going..

You might remember I was considering buying a flats boat a few years ago but had to buy a truck instead, followed by my cousin giving me and old Gheenoe. Unfortunately the Gheenoe needs a new transom and I’m a pecan farmer in a state that’s seen 2 Cat 5s plus another smaller hurricane in 3 years lol...
