Well this past weekend I went on my first Sea Duck hunt off Long Island New York. We had a blast!! But the best part was that I took my 3 year old dog Rocket. For his first "BIG" water hunt he did great.
The first day was very ducky with 3+ foot waves and rain. Rocket made 5 retrieves before we decided that the tide was getting to be too much. Dealing with the salt water, waves ad no land in sight was all new to him... and me. I had to handle on most of the retrieves because of his placement in the boat while we were shooting. Its a little different having to wait for your dog to be on top of the wave before you cast him.

The second day was very foggy with no wind. And I mean no wind or waves. It was too calm, but we did manage to scratch out 7. And again Rocket did great. He was able to mark all of these with no handeling involved.
