Cruisin Cuda is 100% right. Except you'll also get folks walking around AFTER shooting time.
When I used to hunt it, before they opened up the east side, I'd see a game warden just about every time. Never much of a big deal, though they will snoop around looking for any lead shot. SO, if you have some dove or squirrel load just sitting in the truck, they will pop you for it. Not that I ever had any, but they do snoop.
After they opened up the east side marsh, I'd go down that canal that leads to Alligator Lake, in my kayak. It's about a mile to the first big pond on the right, and a little less than 2 miles to the mouth of Alligator. I've done okay during teal season, hunting the west side of the lake. The pond that's about halfway down the canal, I've heard shooting there, but powerboats always beat me to it, so I don't have firsthand experience. Didn't have any luck on the south end of the lake the couple of times I tried it, even though the marsh side sounded like a war zone. BTW, the canal and lake hold nice reds.
