Decoy rigging

6 posts in this topic

How do you guys rig your decoys? I have been using a 6 ft cord tied to the decoy, the other to a lead strap. Thinking rigging some on a 50ft line using the quick clips.

I like to have at least 12' of line on my deeks. What I do it take 12' of "No Tangle" brand line and I crimp a 8-10" bungy to it (basically looping both ends). On the end of the bungy I crimp on one of the flexible lead weights that allows me to form a U shape. Just wrap up the line, stretch out the bungy so there is pressure on the line and hook the U shape weight on the end of the keel. Works great and the bungy keeps it from comping loose. Very similar to the Ace style anchors.

You can buy cheap little bungy's like 4 for $1.50. I then purchased the 12 oz lead anchors and cut them in half so I had enough for a dozen.

My dad found some of those rig em right set ups for closeout last year and they work wonderfully. Too bad they are kind of expensive when they are not on sale.

This is what i used.

No Tangle cord

Crimps

6 oz Nuts

I crimp the cord to the decoy and then string about 6 foot out and crimp the end by making a loop for the nut at the end. I then use a large D ring and hook the end where the loop and nut is to the d ring for transport. When i get to where i am hunting i unhook the loop from the d ring and drop it in the water. When i am done hunting i pull the end where the nut is out of the water and hook it to the d ring. The decoys float behind me as i pickup the rest of them.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
