It's been hit or miss out on Turpin. You just have to be in the right place and where the birds want to be. We shot 21 Saturday, yesterday was slow. I'm deer hunting this weekend so I'm not sure if I will get out, depends if I can punch the deer tag quickly. Good luck!
not far unless they are doing the same and dragging over. itgets so thick and deep 50 feet before the dam that we have to pull the boats through it. Nice hole right there to right in front of the dam on the right side/center, it's deep. you look like your enjoying the turpin you doing as well as last year?
Thats what the pictures were of. Clogged back to the first island now going to try to get it opened this next weekend I am recruiting a few boats with winches we are going to tear the main clog up with anchors and winches. hopefully I can let you know some good news after the weekend. someone had been working on the middle prior to the opener and dug allot out the hard way with a shovel. we are going to use that to are advantage and rip that section up with the winch then hopefully hook a couple into the left side and pull the whole pile out and float it down to the bay where the tight s turn is at about 50 yrds down. we will see I guess.
this is a before shot.
Yes that # still works. I got the texts, but I don't get pictures on that phone. Sorry I didn't reply, I just hadn't checked that phone. Did you get all the way down the canal? Or were you blocked off from all the crap in the water?
Sorry for no reply until now I usually would get a notification when I got a message on here and it doesn't show I got a reply?
How was your youth hunt? I saw your post about the phrag swallowing up your hunting spot. the **** sucks man.
The channel is locked up tight from about 300yrds down from that small island you have to motor around its 250yrds long then open up again, then another big blockage in that tight area. the phrag has totally grown in the small channel from the pond to the flat also. I'm going down with the brush cutter sometime this week. as soon as I get my new frame put together.
also is this # still good? 801-979-6875 I have sent pictures and text to it with no reply.
With the hunt getting close thought I would touch base with you and see how things are coming together for you.
I'm waiting for a dixie surface drive frame to get here, the new owner has agreed to do three mods for my frame and I couldn't be happier with his willingness to do it for me. I was able to sell my long tail frame with my old 6hp motor for the amount I bought it for and was able to do this for a couple hundred and keep my motor to put on it. The guy I sold it to also has a scanoe he bought last year after talking to me about my setup for a year. he is up north and will be hunting public and salt creek.
Any way we should hunt more this year I have a few more good spots and your more than welcome to hunt them with me.
