    What a great day Coastal Waterfowl Youth

    I made a post a few weeks ago that we would donate a trip from Reel Fowl Outfitters. Capt Mike Bell and Capt Anthony Grassi wanted to take some youths out on Youth Coastal Day Feb 9th. I received a message from John that his twin boys would love it. Along with Mike Braden Barnegat Bay Delta Waterfowl and his son we set out early Saturday morning. Well Saturday proved to be a fun day despite 30 mph NW winds. We managed to decoy a bunch of brant for the boys. They limited out after a few flocks and scored a nice drake mallard. My friend John brought his dog Maris to do the retrieving. After the hunt was over with plenty of laughs and good times sharing hunting stories, Mike gave the twin boys a pair of brant decoys to commemorate their first brants. Sedge Island Gunning Decoys. Mike and i committed after that hunt we will take kids out every year on Youth Waterfowl Coastal day.

    Kudos to you guys for doing that. Glad they had success.

    I cant say enough good things about Captain Mike and Captain Anthony. They were class acts all the way. It was very generous of them to give a youth hunt to my boys. It was a very cold day in the low 20s with high winds. They found a perfect spot loaded with Brant and set up great shooting opportunities for my kids who limited out on Brant. Their waterfowl and bay knowledge were impressive to say the least. They really went out of there way to make a great hunt for the boys and give them a lasting memory of their first Brants and first hunt on the bay.

    Thank you both for an unforgettable experience.

    Keep in touch for next season early Youth Waterfowl. I think we may do both North and Coastal Zone...Reel Fowl Outfitters
