I would get some Old Squaw decoys and a boat if you do not already have one and your basic longline setup, And even a layout boat will help at times.
Good luck

Small rock islands out in big water. You will need a boat. Duckdon

80 feet of water, 3.5 miles off shore will help too

you dont necessarily need a boat or to be far off shore you just need to find out where they are hanging out in your area, i have had many sucessful hunts for oldsquaw off the beach in eastern long island......just gotta find them, and typically if youre hunting them from shore its going to be harsh conditions keep that in mind. good luck bud :thumbsup:
