    Or you see the water dropping fast, but theres birds flying and you keep saying "Ok we'll leave in 10 minutes." But you never do, until it's too late.

    man, ive been away from the delta for about 10 years now (where I could hunt seriously) Ive been back intermittently and it is absolutely devastating to see what has happened down there. ten years ago there was a ton of grass south of the causeway, now there is none.

    One of the main reasons the grass is gone is because of the development that has been happening in the area. All of the new construction up the delta (especially on the east side) causes a lot of siltation in the shallow bays, all of this chokes out the native grass and at this point some of the bays that used to be good are deserted now. D'olive seemed to be the first to get hit about 10 years ago. 15 years ago that bay was absolutely full of grass, now its nothing but a red clay desert.

    sorry I know this is an old thread but I almost teared up reading this and knowing I wont be able to go back to a bay that was fun to hunt in.

    There is a very simple solution. Remove the causeway and let the rivers do their thing. Problem solved.
