Winter is Coming… Fishing and Waterfowl Report

Its been an awesome start to our 2019- 2020 waterfowl season so far. Fortunately we’ve had good numbers of sea ducks mixed with divers and puddle ducks making up our daily bag. I was concerned that the poor state of our oyster beds in the western pamlico sound would be an issue with holding a good wintering population of sea ducks but so far we are looking good. If the season continues how it’s been ill be one happy man. Talk of the year.. Speckled Trout. It really has been an amazing fishery and if we can get through this winter without a cold stun event, this spring should be exceptional in both numbers and quality fish. Mirrolures have been our go to recently working it slow all the way from the bank back to the boat. These fish have already made their push to the head of the creeks, warmer sunny days have made for a good time on the water fishing. Stay safe, tight lines, good gunning and god bless. – Capt.

North Carolina Duck Hunting Guide: Report

I would like to give a big THANK YOU to all that have hunted with us this past season. It has truly been a pleasure sharing the boats and blinds with yall and we will begin booking when the 2019- 2020 season dates are finalized. Fortunately we were blessed with a safe and successful season with sea ducks being our staple and divers and puddle ducks mixed in. The weather being mild as a whole made scouting a priority to stay in the birds; but fortunately the numbers held strong. Again thanks to all who booked with us and we look forward to guiding everyone again next year.

Thanks Friends,

Carolina Sea Ducks: Guide Report

Well friends, there’s one month left for the season and although the weather forecast predicts mild temperatures; hopefully the gunning will remain strong. Sea Ducks have been our staple this year with divers and puddle ducks mixed in. A North Carolina Guide always hopes for a good blast of arctic wind from the north but thankfully the birds have held with these high temperatures. Again i would like to thank everyone that have shared the blinds with us this year, great clients make the difference!

Good Gunning

Guided Duck Hunting & Trout Fishing

The holiday season is upon us and were thankful for the memories we’ve shared with  clients thus far. The ducks made a good showing at the start of the season and i was pleased that the mussel and clam beds seem to not have been affected as badly as i anticipated by hurricane florence. The speckled trout fishing has also been good overall with quantity of fish, and a few “good keepers” mixed in.  We’re excited for the last split for waterfowl season but will also be running some sea duck hunts during the special season.  Happy holidays friends and i hope to see you on the water soon!  We are also offering Gift Certificates this year, please contact us if you would like to purchase one for that special someone or family member .

All in & All done

The last youth day has come and gone, and we had a great time with the younger generation of waterfowlers. The birds worked well despite fog, warm weather & rain … and spirits were high as we headed back to the dock. Its been both an interesting and exciting 2017-2018 season and i would like to give a big Thank You again to all those who have hunted with us this year.  I cant wait to see what the next season brings us but until then its time to trade shotguns for spinning rods and take to the water.

Thanks friends

One Sunrise; Multiple Memories

As the last week of the 2017-2018 waterfowl season has come, i started reflecting back today on the season as a whole. Its has seemed at times like both a marathon and a sprint to stay amongst the ducks, but not everything comes easy. we’ve hunted in near record low temperatures for the state and swatted mosquitoes in december but such seems to be the random patterns of North Carolina weather.  Sharing experiences with youth outdoors has been the highlight for me so far. Seeing the anticipation at first light and the amazement in a young hunters eyes as a group of divers cut into the decoys like little jets from above sets a smile on my face every-time. When i was young all i wanted to do was to be in the woods or on the water; and when you see young people this day in age with the same enthusiasm and passion for being in mother nature and chasing wild game its good to know that a foundation for the longevity of this sport is being set.

Again i would like to give a big THANK YOU to all the ladies and gentlemen who have hunted with us this season and the best part is…. its not over yet.

Thanks Friends,

Wind, Snow & Ice: Duck Guides

Finally the freeze up gave us strong numbers of fresh birds; which made for good gunning. Nearly good enough to forget about how cold our feet were with the 9 degree temperature and strong wind chill. Hunting in these conditions is never easy, but was truly an experience and thankfully rewarding. Having great people to share sunrises with definitely makes a difference and i cant wait to see what the rest of the season holds.

Stay safe friends and good gunning!

Eastern NC Waterfowl Hunting

Overall, its been a good first split for the 2017- 2018 Waterfowl Season. Thus far we have harvested 14 different species of Fowl and have had a blast doing it.   The first 2 weeks of the season started out strong and gradually tapered off on the numbers of birds seen using the western Pamlico Sound; which ment we just had to work harder to stay in good gunning.  This hard front coming through towards the weekend should give us good numbers of fresh birds, thats always the hope of the hunter anyhow. Special thanks to all who have shared the boats and blinds with us so far and were looking forward to the grand fan-ally to come. Its shaping up to be a promising late season.

Thanks Friends

We do it not just for the ducks

It was an honor having these men on the boat. I have alot of respect for our service men and women and throughly enjoyed the blind conversation, laughs, and even had some shooting with dense fog conditions. Thank you Delta Waterfowl for the opportunity and thank you to all those patriots who support not only our country, but also our way of life.
