Still, if it were me, I'd have a couple of blacks in the rig. I'd also go with a couple of those puddler packs. The key is to match your setup to what the birds in your area are doing. For example, like you, we get mostly mallards. But there is a pretty good percentage of coastal blacks, too. In addition we get a good number of wigeon and gadwall. Occasionally we might see some teal or woodies, but they're pretty rare. Even more rare are pintails. We've tried including woodies, teal and pintails in the rig, but it didn't seem to make any difference. On the other hand, the birds seem more at ease when they see blacks and gadwalls.
