well done......do not feel you need ALOT of decoys to draw great gunning on the salt......especially since sleds offer superior visability!.....but you really can't overdo it either.......I have actually downsized my spread considerably the last couple years to only five or six lines and a total of about 40 blocks........I really feel that the same issue as with puddlers - - LOCATION, makes or breaks a seaduck hunt.

I really like the old-sqaws!!!!! They are a must to get any chance of decent gunning at those little rascals!

thanks guys, we went out today shot at one surf scoter, we werent really in the right place, it is hard with our size boat. i will hopefully be getting a boat this summer, it is hard to justify a little runabout boat when you are in college but, hey when an obsession over takes you there isnt much you can do. well hopefully the weather cooperates for next weekend, so we can end on a better note. thanks for the compliments and they looked great on the water.

yeah not a whole lot of birds kicking around....... this is my first year ever experiencing sea ducks. and i love them, it is a way for me to extend my season, make it last just that much longer. waterfowling has consumed me. we found a place that is holding a few eiders and scoters for thurs so hopefully we can get on them weather permitting! good luck to you and if you can post up some pics!!! i'd love to see your spread, and the trophy's if you get 'em! be safe
