South Jersey-Commadore Barry Area

Postby hardtime » Tue Oct 30, 2007 5:59 am

How has that area been...I been out there twice and and haven't had much luck. Yesterday ( 10/29 ) there were very few in the air and we had no shots.

Your thoughts?... :help:

Is all of the SJ area not turned-on yet?

Thanks

Hardtime,

Been out that way a couple of times. Open day was pretty good. We killed 4 woodies an 5 teal. We saw a good bit of teal last Friday near Stowe Creek. The birds were in range, shot several times but didn't drop any.

I plan on hitting "my secret spot" tomorrow. We'll see what happens.

Are hunting a meadow?

Thank Hyper,
We have been hunting the creek behind bridgeport speedway and the floodgate off floodgates rd. Hope it picks up soon.
I wanted to hunt my old spot behind American Dredge/Pierson property but I cant seem to find a way into it without having to ride 5 miles in the Del River, which can be very rough this time of year. we used to walk through Pierson's Property but they stopped us :sad:

Thanks bro

Hi Steve,

If you go to the end of the road on the left near the floodgate

there is a small slab of concrete...its not much to speak of and your

not going to launch any yachts from it.

It is pretty much a hand launch opperation. but you could back a

SMALL trailer down it.

If you wanted to go behind the speedway you have to get under

that low bridge. You dont have but 3 and a half feet clearance at

high tide.

Take care pal

I saw that concrete...errr...ramp?
It looks scary but do-able. This sounds like an adventure!
Thanks!
