Hunting the creeks
« on: October 18, 2011, 02:06:03 PM »
Anyone out there hunt the creeks near the delaware river? Mantua, woodbury, racoon or rancocas? I have a canoe and understand the tides can move pretty swift but I was told it is manageable. Any idea on the depth at a high tide? Is low tide better for hunting or high tide? Any info is appreciated.

Is it that bad? Maybe I'll do the early season in the canoe and then just use it to retrieve ducks I the second season.

Check out the tidal change in those creeks,  the tide is ripping through there, you are asking for trouble  in a canoe

i've done the big timber in the past in a canoe. But don't go out if the winds are over 15 mph fighting the tide is enough to have to worry about havin any chop. i got myself a boat this year... Much easier!

I'm a pretty big guy and am not a fan of a canoe on a lake.  That being said I have hunted out of them, but you gotta be carefully with that much current and weather.  Not put yourself on a poster for a couple birds.
