Charter our 23' Center Console for a visit of 6 lighthouses that mark the center channel of the Delaware Bay. These light houses are operational and are all unmaned and automatic at this time. A Trip on the bay will last about 6 to 8 hours. Our goups are up to 6 and we generally depart in the morning and head to the elbow first and work our way down the bay finishing at the cape may light house, the concrete ship and the concrete ww2 bunker house. For available dates and times contact us on our contact tab on this website.
shore bird charters
We have started taking some groups out to look at the shore birds, osprey, falcons and occasionally a bald eagle. We did have a snowy owl in March. The shore birds pile up along the coast of the Delaware Bay and eat horseshoe crab eggs that are very high in protein before their migration back north. Charter our 23' parker center console for the 4 or 8 hour trips. We can take up to 6 in a group at a time.
Greg from Performance Marine joins us for a New Jersey Brant shoot with his trusty side kick Dot. Small world story is "Dot" and My dog "Hammering Hank" have the same father "Rough Water" These dogs look the same, and what a hunting line. If anyone is interested in a lab the same blood line that Hank came from "Sunny" yellow female and "Rough water" male have another litter being born in Jan of this year. Contact Ed Myers at 443 480 0775. This is the same breeding that Lee and Tiffiny from the crush have. "Hank" is Lee's dog "Tank" are brothers. Just a little history on the dogs in the photo, had to share...
Hammering hank is a retrieving machine. He will swim out of site chasing birds, and 90 percent of the time comes back with them. Greg had a great shoot on Brant and managed to scratch out the second banded bird of the season. Congratulation Greg.
Family Hunting Trip
A little late putting this one up, but i wanted to thank Dave, David and Charles for coming down and hunting for Atlantic Brant in some very tough weather. We had a full moon flood tide that covered the entire marsh. It looked like the ocean expecially with the 40 mph winds we had to endore. It was very cold, windy and rough conditions and these young hunters and their father stuck it out all day. I would say they had a blast and shot a few duck and brant and a fair amount of ammo... For the conditions they did very well.
I look forward to having you guys down for a fishing trip. Charles and David are booth under 16 years old and we welcome young hunters, they are our future of the sport. Keep shooting guys and as we always say; Lock and Load Boys, lets shoot some birds....
Good evening fellow waterfowl hunters.
Just wanted to let everyone know that we had a group down from Pa that had a fantastic trip. We shot a limit of 10 brant and one and half limits of ducks on saturday in 40 mph winds over taylor decoys. I have added a flock of Taylor Brant decoys to the spread this year and they are beautiful. I have to give credit to Clint Taylor for making a fine decoy that can be put over the fire place as well as hunted over. I also have to give credit to Pat and his 2 wing men Dale and Matt, these PA boys can shoot and they did not hit my decoys. They did manage to keep my lab, Hammering Hank, my helper Scotty and Me hopping all day. We had started our day with plan "A" being scratched due to 40 mph winds. I told the boys no worries I do have plan B and C to go thru yet. After a couple mile relocation we were on our way. Plan "B" turned out to be ok to get on the water but a wash at the blind site due to incoming wind boiling the water in front of my blind. Plan "C" it was. I had set out the Taylor Decoys and some bufflehead decoys and started to cook up a nice breakfast of eggs and sausage in the boat, while the boys piled up everything flying. Pat, Matt and Dale limited out on Brant and we had to relocate for some duck shooting. The shooting died off in the afternoon after the tide dropped but the boys managed a couple ducks in the late afternoon. Thanks again to Pat, Dale and Matt for booking with Fins and Feathers Outfitters. I look forward to having you guys back in Snow Goose Season, we can put tighter chokes in and really test your shooting ability. Good Luck in Pa. Lock and Load boys lets shoot something....
