Sea Ducks Near Wildwood Area

Postby HeadlessBrant » Wed Dec 19, 2007 9:25 pm

I hunt around the Wildwood area on a fairly regular basis but I never seem to run into any Old Squaws, Buffies, etc.

I have a 14' Broadbill boat and was wondering if this is adequate enough to handle the big water associated with sea duck hunting.

Also can anyone suggest any areas in South Jersey where it might be possible to set up for sea ducks with the rig I have.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

If your looking for divers and or seaducks you need to be closer to inlets and or big water. If you have buffy decoys they will come to them but it seems like you need to have oldsquaw decoys to shoot them (oldsquaws) with any regularity. Pick your day scout around and your boat should be fine. Make sure you rig up your anchor line with a float of some kind so you can get set in the same spot after retrieving your birds. Any questions send me a pm I will try to help.

Oh and by the way Headlessbrant....14 feet isn't big enough. It's been my experience that you need at LEAST a 35-40 footer out there in the waves. I would also suggest a cabin, sleeping quarters, bathroom and lifeboat. :smile:
