    Met up with a group of guys from all over the country for some east coast sea ducking last week. This isn't third time to hunt with Reilly Mccue of rpm outdoors. He's just an absolute pleasure to be around and works his butt off to put you on birds. Due to the lack of cold weather, we saw about 1/100th of what we've seen on previous trips but still got what we were after.

    Set up the first day and took turns shooting outta the layout and off the beach.

    Didn't take long to knock out limits of big eiders with the 410s.

    We hunted for three days and it was pushing high 60s every day. The birds were really scarrce but Reilly tried several sets each day to make sure we got what we were after.

    I'm a big believer in giving praise and support to those that earn it.

    If you are looking for a great experience on a sea duck hunt where you can get eiders, all 3 scoters, old squaw, black duck, and others, give Reilly McCue a call at (802) 233-6621.

    I've hunted with Reilly 3x over the last 10 years and have seen his customer service and overall experience get better with every trip.

    I'm also big on realistic expectations. Not every day can be the best hunt ever. In an area where tides change out at 10+ feet per day and winds can produces seas that will kill you; your guides job isn't only to get you ducks, it's also to keep you alive and get you home safe each and every day. On the second day he held us in the bay on what seamed like an average swell. We only shot 8 birds all day. I just learned that a local commercial fisherman died crashing his boat into the jetties in that swell, that day.

    What I can say about Reilly is that every trip we get what we are after and get home safe at the end of the day. That sounds simple but it's a pretty big burden for a guy that takes a bunch of type A/ GO type personalities on a 3 day tour.

    Thanks to Reilly another great experience and I'm looking forward to taking the family up for our June striper trip with the red headed Viking.

    Beautiful birds and awesome photos. My few woodies pale in comparison but I'm enjoying being part of this thread.
    Had a couple successful mornings in the last week.

    Also noticed some activity on the pond the last couple weeks so I strung an 8 weight and tried some streamers for an hour or so. Landed about a dozen bass and then thought I got hung on a log for a while.
