decoy rigging

2 posts in this topic

I found a good deal on some used diver decoys so I grabbed them. Now I'm looking at setting them up with line and weights and I'm wondering how many feet of line you put on each decoy and what style weight is the best. I realize it depends on how deep the water is, I'm just wondering in general how much line. Any tips appreciated.

Totally depends on where you hunt as you said. I use regular line and strap weights with about 12 feet on them with a few longer one's for deeper drops offs. If you hunt even deeper water you may need to "long-line" some so you can drop a longer anchor-line down with a heavier anchor. I like the tarred line or the PVC line by GHG or Tangle-free. Don't buy cheap plastic line or thin threaded line.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
