I live on GrandLake NB. I have never seen any bluebills and only one bufflehead in my lifetime. There are a lot of Goldeneye (whistlers) on the lake in late season as well as some blacks.

I have family on Grand Lake, but had no idea it was good for Whislers. We usually hunt down the sj river for whislers. It was a bad season for us, not many birds and an early freeze. Where abouts on Grand Lake do u hunt, near the mouth to the sj river or open water in the coves.

We were out around rememberance day, seen a few flocks of no more than 4 ducks, went home with no whislers. That was all for the season, no one I hunt with is as anxious to hunt every weekend and also during the week if not working. No fun set up on the river alone.

I have the new over sized greenhead black duck decoys, with snap on keel weights. They really bring the birds in. For whishlers the dekes are old and faded but they have worked in the past. I don't own the whishler dekes so something is better than nothing.

I used to hunt Gand Lake quite often...and harvested many a blue bill from there. The whistler hunting was even better.
