Bowfishing & Duck Hunting the waters from Delaware Bay to Barnegat, NJ
Captain Mike has been duck hunting the waters from Delaware Bay to Barnegat, New Jersey for the last 18 years, both tidal marsh and offshore hunting. His knowledge of the waters and expertise with the boat and equipment allows for the most of each hunting trip. He is certified and licensed by the United Stated Coast Guard and prides himself in maintaining a clean and safe boat.
The boat is an 18' Bankes Freedom powered by a 75hp Evinrude E-tech. It is equipped with top of the line electronics and VHF's. The boat is designed to be hunted out of with an attached blind to provide comfort and safety to the hunters. We also have all required US Coast Guard safety equipment onboard. We are fully licensed and insured. All hunters will be required to sign a Release of Liability the morning of the hunt.
Hunts larger than three people will be hunting out of layout blinds tendered by our custom built 20' SeaArk skiff powered by a 40hp outboard. Depending on what species we are hunting one to three man hunts may also be hunted out of layout blinds depending on the location.
Due to the vast amount of marsh and open bays we hunt species of birds targeted and weather conditions the morning meeting spot will be determined one to two days before the actual hunt takes place.
West Wind Outfitters prides itself in giving our clients the full hunting experience. We cannot however, dictate weather and bird movement. Some days limits come easy and some days (although very rare) do not come at all. If the birds aren't working an area we do not hesitate to pick up a complete rig and move to another location. We don't just pick a spot and you are stuck there all day.
A USCG licensed captain is with you every step of the way from the time you step out of your truck till the time you get back in. We do not mix parties; your group is the only group for that day. And we do not take out multiple parties, drop you off and leave. To us that is not a guided hunt.
