This year I have seen them rafting up right in the middle of pits, especially when we had the freeze up a few weeks ago. I tried running long drops on my ducks but at that depth I didnt have enough weight on. My goose floaters with 8oz weights ended up drifting down the pit.

Good try though.
Can you run long lines bank-to-bank?
Not sure. Part of the problem is how we currently hunt them and how I plan on hunting them in the future. With no dog to retrieve birds, we have to be able to get the boat out and around without fowling the prop. Next season I may take out a small 10' boat with a trolling motor that we can use to chase down cripples so I dont have to drop the blind and move my big boat around once it gets set.
