    Default Slow day on the salt.



    Headed out again yesterday for some scoters. We tried setting up in the open water and used my pirogues as a layout boat. We had a nice surf scoter drake come into the spread while we were setting out the longlines, but after we finished setting up things were really slow. We ended the morning with a couple white wing scoter hens, an immature surf scoter drake, a couple barrows golden eye, one bufflehead, and the two old squaw drakes pictured above. Not a banner day, but for a day with a complete lack of wind and waves I couldn't complain. Hopefully we'll get some more windy weather before the weeks over so that we can get on a few more mallard shoots. I'll be grilling some mallards tonight if any of you can make it!!
