Hello guys, I am coming lower NY , up to the "York" area to buy some goose decoys, and since it is such a long trip I want to add in a few days of eider-scoter hunting time as well. The guy I am buying the decoys from , doesn't hunt seaduck and really cant help much on where to go or where to launch. I have decided to just hunt somewhere in the Casco bay area. because I don't want to hunt open ocean, I like the safety of all the islands the casco bay area has... to get out of a sudden blow if need be. aslo help to find a lea to set up in easier.. I have hunted seaducks for a long long time, I have the rig I have the boat, I just need a little special help on the best launch that close to typical seasonal gunning. It will probably be the only trip of the year to maine...so I wont be pounding it!! I normally just go to RI for eider, and I hunt CT for all the scoter I need.. I have hunted four times off the maine coast with Bill Wasson up in Thomaston area , many years ago...so I know kinda what to expect. Might it be worth the time to do a ferry ride to one of the outer islands?
I figure it will be a Friday-Saturday hunt.
you can PM me if you have any info , if you like.
happy hunting guys!
