Commerce - Patito Lake
The owner of Patito Lake, designed this body of water for the purpose of hunting ducks. It has a few acres of deep water, and several acres of a shallow flood zone that flood vegetation in 1 - 3 ft. of water.This lake was designed to rise quickly during the wet season, ranging from 4 - 5 to 5 - 7 acres of water. Smart-weed and Millet have both been planted at this property; however, Smart-weed is the dominant source of vegetation, and feed attractant on this lake. The predominant duck species at Patito Lake are Mallard, Gadwall, and Wigeon.
There is no permanent blind at this property, only a temporary blind is available. No boat available at this property.
Myself and another member hunted Commerce this morning, and what a gorgeous morning it was. Around 30 degrees at daylight but bearable.
Right at daylight we had a couple ducks work right into the spread. After 15 minutes, the flying ceased.… - Kyle Randazzo on Nov 10 ,2018
the birds I saw wanted to come in there. Shot 3 teal, a ringneck and a mallard. Probably only saw 10 other birds. Actually had some thin ice on the shoreline.
