Down here in the tidewater area of VA the creeks are frozen solid except those that are flowing into the bay. The Bay Proper is open and the military has a bunch of ships moving around heading out to sea for some reason. But the variety of ducks sitting on open water is just amazing. Widegons, which are a very beautiful duck, buffle haeads, Blacks and Mallards, Brant and Canada geese are everywhere there is open water. One more week till we have to change blinds and get the boat ready for perch fishing and possible some pickerel fishing . Till then we keep shooting!
