Van Alstyne - JerMar Lake
There is a total of about 15 acres of water on this 100 acre property. There is a 3 acre lake with a spillway that feeds the larger 10 acre lake. There are also 4 other small tanks that surround the two larger tanks that do hold ducks, and can work well for those who enjoy jumping smaller tanks.
Most hunters will probably want to set up in the blind on the East side of the largest lake, on the west side of the lake near to to road, or on the point at the NW corner of the lake. The blind can be in up to two feet of water depending on lake level, so waders are required if hunting from the blind.
This lake has a gradual slope and shallow water near the edges, which makes setting out and picking up decoys a breeze. There are cattails along most of the East side of the lake, which are great for concealing hunters. There is a large amount of aquatic vegetation, which keeps the ducks happy.
Clear morning at Jer Mar. Several landed just outside the decoys before shooting time. A few more singles flew over us high later in the morning but did not give a second look. A large number of ducks were roosting… - Al Kyle on Nov 17 ,2018
