Sillosock decoys

Has anybody used these? I'm thinking about buying a dozen or two and giving them a try.

I have used them and I personally think they are a great decoy. We have a few in our snow goose aresenal!

My friend owns several hundreds of sillosock decoys and I've used them in our hunts the past couple years. High winds to little wind, these work well. I give them a thumbs up. The only downside of these is they will collect water on a rainy day and you need to drain them or they don't work very well.

I really like the way they look in the spread. LOTS of movement

Thanks. I'm probably going to add them to our snow spread this year.

I know a couple of guys that swear by them. I guess the key to them is the fact that they look the same with 20+ mph winds down to 0mph winds. Unlike the regular wind socks that can mess up a hunt with little wind, these help!

Our crew goes to Saskatchewan every other year. We started way back in the day with Texas rags. We would all wear white and lay in the spread. We now have been useing sillos for two years with layout blinds AND an e-caller we made and absolutely smoke the snows. What a gas. I don't use photo bucket, but if someone wants I can pm them pictures of the last years hunt with the sillo's showing in the background. I am not affiliated, just believe in the product. BC

We go to Manitoba every year and need to upgrade the snow spread. So far, I haven't hear anything negative about Sillos. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to haul, which make them even more attractive.

For a sock they are a tad spendy, but sounds like if you want to shoot some birds it is the way to go!

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
