Belive it or not, during my afternoon hunt something that would happen maybe once in about 1,000,000 blue moons happened. Out of about 200 decoys, one of my bluebills starts taking off like the barrel jaws dragged. So what do i do but chase it down. Now all of this is happening in only 3-4 feet of water. The first thing that came to mind was a damn strugeon has sucked up the weight and its lodged in his gill. Get to the decoy and there swims a damn striper. This striper has a chartruse umbrella hooked to him which grapped the decoy string. Now for the strugeon bit, where I hunt, the sturgeon have been found in a few gill nets. Big ones at that. I've seen some in person. I'm talking anywhere from 200- 500 pounds. Crazy day on the water.
One more day of war on the ducks. Just glad to see they have showed up for the last couple days. Cans, reds, bluebills, pinnies, and a few others mixed in.

Bagged two geese Saturday morning on the Nansemond. I have had deer swim through the decoys and coots peck on my decoys but never a rock steal one. Saw several nice flocks of bluebills, cans and two flocks of widgeons. Naturally they will be here next week when it doesn't matter.

If the umbrella was a chart. Chesapeake Bay Lure variety (four 6" teasers and 9" trailer), that would be the one I lost in late December about 2 ml north of Cape Henry. :D Had 40# blue Berkley attached to it.
