Summer on Cape Cod, the streets are packed, the spots we normally hunt have no sign of duck hunting other than a cameo bikini I spotted the other day and the hand full of carry over Eiders that have started nesting on the Monomoy National wild life refuge. My duck boat kind of looks sad sitting next to the house sweating in the summer sun. Smokey our black lab is sleeping all day long in the air conditioned living room on the couch when no one is around and life is good. With the striped bass we are catching on the Magellan being black and white like the drake Eider I can’t stop telling duck hunting stories to our fishing charters. Yes crazy to most but to a true duck hunter there is really only one thing that occupies our mind more than duck hunting and as we get older they say that even falls behind. Once July 1st hits all bets are off, because we start fishing nearly around the clock. The wind that is so helpful duck hunting comes now and again thru-out the summer as a well needed day off and Advil fits the bill. Come late September early October when the first flights of birds start running the coast, my mind will be back on track. But for now it is Finns rather than feathers and sun tan oil on my nose rather than wd-40 on my barrel. Until then all the best. Capt. Lenny Greiner
Bag Common Eider, Old Squawl, White Wing Scooter…
On our Waterfowler’s hunt we can specifically target sea ducks other than Eiders or target a mixed bag of waterfowl before or after an Eider hunt. On a Waterfowler hunt you may see and bag any of the following: Black Duck, Brant, Geese, Bufflehead, Merganser, Scaulp, Golden Eye, and a wide variety of puddle ducks depending on where we hunt or the given day. This is not necessarily a sunrise to sunset hunt. We hunt the weather and the tides for these additional species and incorporate this hunt in conjunction with an eider hunt most days. Please let us know in advance if you are planning a trophy hunt so we can better suit your needs.
It is cold on the Cape but the sea duck hunting has been good this winter season. We will be offering a cast and blast combo this coming season in October and November. The Striped Bass, Tuna and sharks will still be here in Oct./Nov. as well as the south bound flights of Sea Ducks. If interested please check out our fishing web site. Once our Sea Duck and Brant season ends we will be setting our sights on Cod fishing in March and will be running Cod trips till early May. May 11 kicks off the Porgy and Black Sea Bass run followed by the Striped Bass in Late May. We expect the Striped Bass and Blue fishing to get red hot again this season in early June and will be running Striped Bass trips thru early November. Last season we did well on our shark trips in early July with lots of blue sharks a few Makos and a Thresher shark that went 500+ pounds. We will be ready for early Blue fin tuna fishing in early July and will be running Tuna/Shark trips thru Early November. It still not too late to get in your last duck hunt, season runs thru the end of January. If interested give us a call. Happy new year. Capt. Len
