Help a new guy out (guide/location/boats)

Postby NCnewguy » Sun Jun 22, 2014 11:56 am

I am new to the area and am looking at booking a guided hunt this winter. I am looking at trying to get a mixed bag with as many different ducks as possible. Can anyone recommend a good guide that can put me on some ducks. I am weighing the difference between going to the OBX and staying closer in. Is the hunting worth the trip to the OBX? A pintail has been on the bucket list for years. Thanks for the help. Also shifting gears a little...does anyone with layout boat experience think I could use a PR 49 inflatable to fool some ducks. If you do a quick youtube search for PR49 you will see the boat size color etc. Thought the profile might be a little much but wanted to get some thoughts on the matter.

If you want a pintail, there is no for sure but Ocracoke is your best bet. Wade Austin or Earl Gaskins

that pr 49 could be useful in some aspects I guess. its definitely high profile. it would really depend on how well it anchors and can handle various seas. its not always slic cam and seas change and u don't wanna swamp it I imagine.
Springing Flying Fish are good practice in the off season

Call Capt. Guion with Green Creek Outfitters & Guide Service. 252-617-0024 He is an awsome guide who really knows how to put you on the spot. He is based in Pamlico County and hunts with a scissor rig. He always meets our expectations. :thumbsup:
