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.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...
    • Knock yourself out. IMO, pro basketball is a terrible sport.         -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------           Here's what they think of the Gophers in Iowa.....

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
