I live on the inlet also and I hunt it all the time...lots of mergansers, and what we like to call "tame" mallards, because you cannot get them to land in decoys but you can pick them out of the sky. These mallards usually fly real early though. Last year we got a few teals, but I haven't seen any this year. Last year we hunted up north but this year we are hunting close to huntington state park, and have had a little more luck. Let me know if you want to know more.
