Anyone else out here today?
Thankfully, No. Ugliest place on the planet. Inedible birds. It’ll take months to wash the stink off your gear.
Glad most folks see it this way. I don;t hunt Eden landing, but the bay has been off the hook for me this year. Running 6 bird average, mostly widgeon with sprig about 1/2 the time, and the occassional can. They taste fine to me. AND, its only going to get better as we go. Have not even taken the scull boat down, enjoying working birds and the dog.
Well I guess I know where to launch at this weekend!
Haha the mud is brutal here. I love it here. First place I started duck hunting when I got out of the army. I try and come every day it's open. My back gave out hiking to the whale tail. Two days of hiking is two much I guess...so I'm just mostly bird watching on the levee waiting for my nerves to start firing so I can move my legs. I also cracked my phone screen when I fell... I got a redhead and Pedro got a Canadian right at shoot time. I'm pretty sure he's jump shooting the buffleheads right now
Just saw it Facebook- Thanks Russnuts209- spot burner-
Sounds like an interesting spot to check out, I'm in the bay area and just getting back into duck hunting. Learning the refuges up north has been fun, but this would be good for shorter outings.
Generally, can a hunter be effective out there without a boat or a dog? I'm thinking mostly of the risk of not being able to retrieve a bird. (After reading the Fish & Wildlife site summary.)
Maybe I'll try to adapt my Watermaster (for fly fishing)

Not even a remotely close comparison. I hunt the bay. I love hunting the bay and I’m set up for it better than most. Eden Landing is a $-hithole. It’s the old Cargill salt ponds. Nothing can survive in it besides brine shrimp. No cover. Looks like the surface of the moon and the mud rivals that of San Pablo at low tide. Fun-ish if you want to shoot scrap ducks and throw them in a dumpster afterwards. Otherwise pass.
Careful with your dogs there.
Mine got cut pretty bad, spurting.
