Default Ducks on the coast?

Just wondering if the redheads have started showing up yet. Have a trip planned right after Xmas. Just seeing if the birds are around yet. Port Lavaca area to matagorda area

There are some in Matagorda right now, but not in the numbers we are used to seeing.

Saw a bunch around corpus last week. Not sure if this last front pushed them out or not.

Few weeks ago, we saw thousands of redheads down here in arroyo. Only had a small group of about 10 this past Sunday.

I have seen very little ducks around my job site. We have lots of sloughs and small lakes and Iím just not seeing many. I havenít seen any red heads around north padre yet either.

Hunted San Jose Island (out of Rockport) on the opener after the split. Two of us limited out on Reds and Pins both days. We could have killed 100's of Reds, they were working the dekes really hard both days.
