well, here it is, the first day of winter

Partner, his grandson and I got out this morning, and lo and behold, there was another @#%#@$^@%#@ hatch of mosquitoes!! No wind, good tide, and the result, no fowl.
Going to give it a shot on Christmas Eve morning, since tomorrow's forecast is for rain!
Man, yo no me gusta la nina!!!! Sad

Today I hunted in a t-shirt under my jacket for what seemed like the 10th time this season. I wish I could remember the year but I remember having a season like this a while back when it just stayed mild all winter and we never got into a lot of birds. I'm willing to wager that was a la nina year too.

I believe this time last year I was stuck to hunting the bay the rest of the season with everything else being locked up.

Here's an interesting article on la nina, focusing more on surf forecasting, but it does get into the storm patterns a bit.

Do other flyways need ice to kill birds? This is bullshit. Ask the guys in Louisiana or Arkansas...hell Texas...ask them if they need cold weather and ice to kill ducks. Screw this flyway, its the worst in the country.
