duckmann.....Absolutely, flag, flag and keep on flaggin'!!!!! Scoter are even more responsive....unlike flagging for geese, I have flagged at scoter up until the shot......although remember, this is when hunting from a boat, not from a ledge or rockpile. I use a basic cottonduck canvas square on a dowel....have waved my hat too....just some sort of motion that is not human. I think it is 18" x 18"??
I am not much of a spinner fan, but I guess one of thoes floaters would work......can't hurt to try....if it doesn't cut it, bring it into the boat!
Thanks for the offer....I have several sled sets to go along with my full bodies. Easy to make the long-tails.....just do the same as with the scoters or eider.
I think we will need to PM soon duckmann!!!!!!!!
