2024-2025 Preseason

Postby MARSH BEAR » Wed Apr 17, 2024 1:13 pm

Joey and I went to the marsh last Saturday to fertilize around the blinds.
The marsh is looking good, hoping the fertilizer will help the grass grow taller around the blinds.
last year at this time the marsh looked good also, before the drought and 105+ temps during the summer.
We saw about 300 teal in the marsh, along with a handful of Spoonies and 6 Mottled ducks.

Do ya use a granular or liquid fertilizer ?
Our brush is mostly growing in water, and feared granular wouldn’t work too well.

Glad to hear you've got SAV; was thrilled to see ours had rebounded with a vengeance. Have never tried fertilizing the marsh grass but really should give it a shot to try to give our cover a shot in the arm, though it usually takes off just fine on its own.

It particularly recovers tall where it's trampled the season before.

Tomorrow will be July 6,2024 - that will be 10 weeks until Teal Season, or if you prefer 70 days until teal season.
Don't get caught unprepared, check your shells to make sure you have enough. Charge the spinners and give them a test.
Hopefully everyone cleaned their gun after last season, but I know a few fellows that just put their guns in the closet and hope they work the next season.
Hoping and praying all the storms stay away from us.

Now summer's officially here.

Can't help but notice some of the rice is starting to smell sweet, too.

Pretty sure we flushed three teal in the marsh yesterday, so the migration might already be on...or not.

We have not been back in the marsh since April.
We tried to go on June 29, but the water was too high to do what we needed to do.
I think it will be the middle of August before we get back in the marsh, and by then we should have lots and lots of teal :lol:

I was not going to post a countdown of remaining time until teal season, BUT I realized that tomorrow July 13, 2024 is only 9 weeks until teal season - that means we are only single digits of weeks away.
I am really, really worried about the upcoming hurricane season, and I know DC is holding his breath also.
