I have the shore thing down and seen pictures of guys with blinds in the middle of lakes do well. Figured on trying something different by going out further. When I bought my boat guys said good luck hiding it. I have yet to not have a place to hunt.
Good work. You'll want to add veg to the bow as well. If there's anything natural you can use to blend into it helps greatly but I hunt wide open in mine and do well enough.
Is that rafia grass
We aren't allowed to use phragmites to brush with anymore. Locally we call it cane. Turns out it is highly invasive and it displaces native vegetation. We used to get away with cutting the tops off but not now. The dnr is strict on it now. Was excellent for brushing while it lasted.
I love the wooduck box! Very realistic!
This was a scouting trip I took and the dog blind on the front is grassed as well as the bow when I hunt from it. Appreciate you input!
I've never hunted in the middle of the lake but have thought about it more then once. There's a guy that does though that runs a boat hide that he tows out behind his walleye boat and then sets a huge raft of mostly geese with some ducks mixed in directly off the back. He seems to do about as well as the guys on the shore but I think there mostly shooting divers. For me it looks like a lot more work for not much gain but you never know till you try it right! every place is different so give it a go. The worst that could happen is you have a couple slow mornings but if it works you'll be glad you gave it a try.
Here's a view from our Bankes Goliath. This is about nine miles off shore. We run six lines with 15-20 decoys per line.
