wondering if anyone you know fishing is seeing them in numbers.

Not in numbers, but I did see some trading last time I went surfing a week or so ago...
I'll ask some guys I know who've been a little further outside....
Lots of bass...that's for sure

Tool, was out a couple of times in about 50 ft of water and had a bunch of decoy able bunches, mostly commons. 20 to 30 birds in each flock.
No island leaft for Islanders like me.

50 FT!!!!!!

IS THAT THE NORMAL DEPTHS THEY ARE USING???? thats insane....... i found some WW in the western sound last year in that depth...but i wasnt rigged to hunt them.....i just threw out 10 decoys and hunted them as my boat and the decoys drifted with the tide....once in a while id motor back closer, until finally everything was too spread out....but i bagged three birds one at a time, in about 30 minutes.

oh, and thanks guys

Started seeing them the 1st week of September around the inlets, in the last two weeks I've seen a lot in the ocean (100+/group). All sitting just outside the outter bars mAybe the water is in the 15-25' range.

Saw the first flock of brant fly over the house monday, The larger flocks of scoters are usually a couple miles offshore 30 to 50 ft of water.
It's my Island.

Saw some small groups outside FI inlet Monday while bass fishing. 40-50' of water 1.5-2.5 miles out. Hearing good numbers on the east end, haven't seen for my self yet.

dammm, I don't want to hunt 50 ' of water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but the important note is that guys are seeing birds, so if they are down in one area, they are down in all their normal areas as well!!

thanks
