i am not a hardcore diver hunter, just a late season diver hunter. when they have a choice of my spread or a big raft it gets a little dicey.
there may be something not right about the way the dekes are sitting in the water, why dont u post some pics ect u can do everything right n shinny paint or boobers will cut u down
i have a couple hard core diver hunters in my area one from downstate but stays a couple houses down. they hunt a couple same lakes i do. after they have pounded the divers hard i get duck landing just outside my dekes. just out of range. most place divers just barrel right in. that may be what u got goiing
good luck n happy hunting
