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.
