    What are the redheads for? Just more red and white or do they frequent your waters? Looks good! I also look forward to the upcoming diver hunts. Whether ringers or blackheads show they inevitabley make up the bulk of our harvest.

    After all those years of MarkD advocating the net rig, we find out he's a long liner. Sheeesh.

    Aaaaarrr....mind yer nets or I shall cut them up wit' me saber.

    DR we catch fleeting movements of redheads here. They seem to be around for a couple days, maybe a week and then they are gone. I put them out for a couple reasons, it gives me hope we will shoot them; I like painting/looking at them; I think the darker colors (redheads) pull ducks better than the lighter ones. Watch ducks work to a group of coots (we put out 2-3 dozen), all black and they suck right in.

    I'd love run singles, but you should hear the caterwauling if I make the guys set individual decoys....and geese....OMG....forget it.

    I thought he was putting them out on the street since they have been pretty useless the past few seasons
