+1. Most people call this racking to a secondary, and in my opinion it is rarely necessary. I only do it if I'm aging for more than 3 months or adding fruit or something. There's no use using a secondary as long as you're careful not to pick up sediment from the bottom when you're racking to the bottling bucket from the primary.
