East coast sea ducks
Ha ha Migr8r, We had a group go out with Adam, we did the same exact thing you did the 3 days. We still laugh about that trip. We did kill birds, but his rig is a joke and unsafe. There are plenty of good outfits that hunt sea ducks, stay away from old Adam.....
I had the misfortune of an Adam Smith adventure. Paid for a full day hunt that ended before lunch every day. While decoying birds was attempted, it wasn’t particularly productive. On the first morning he had us hunt in a disabled anchored boat, which apparently is illegal. Picked us up to go for black ducks only to drop us off on shore and instructed how to sneak over a hill and jump shoot them on the other side, I opted out. That was the end of day one. Days two and three weren’t much different. He just added a motorized boat ride to some swimming old squaws and told us to shoot, I opted out of that as well.
He is just a poor guide and with a little research, you can see where he has left hunters stranded in rising tide or his craft broke down out on the ocean. From what I have read, he is also unlicensed.
This is the actual boat he uses. Plywood sides and Great Stuff.
Please share your experience here when you get back. Odds are good I will have to go on a business trip out there sooner or later and if it is in the fall, I'd like to try something like that.
