Hunting or fishing a navigable channel, cut, tidal water way(whatever you want to call it.) to a back lake you better get used to it happening. And paddling or going by in a boat isn't against the law at all. (Navigable tidal water ways)
He stated in the original post that he never saw the hunters or their spread...Everyone is assuming that they were in an entrance or main cut..He did the right thing by leaving and getting out of there. A single could have dropped down in there spread and the hunters nailed it..That would make perfect since why he didn't see any ducks flying. I would guess the hunters didn't even know u were there. Especially if there were laying low in the march. Im an avid fisherman but i do duck hunt and i can honestly say i will not fish the marsh in the winter time due to the duck hunters. Alot of these guys wake up at 1-2 a.m to beat the other hunters out there so imo they earned the right at the spot. Good reason to fish chocolate

When I fish during duck season i usually make a later start to give the hunters a chance to clear out so i can fish where i want and not have to worry about ruining someones hunting.

i guess i do this because i duck hunt as well and just trying to show common courtesy.

Folks set up blinds along cold pass. I've seen birds drop in on their setup with boats wizzing by and people fishing within 100 yards and nobody gets mad. I guess the marsh ducks are more scared of people than the pass ducks or something?

No reason to escalate at situation over a duck or fish.

I'm surprised anyone hunts X-mas bay. There's a few redheads on the south shore line, but that's it.

To the OP... I bet you wish you could delete this. Look I see you were just asking suggestions or takes. Not pushing your agenda. Don't worry, if you read here much, you'll see .. the bashing happens alot. It's all good. No harm no foul, live to fish another day!
