Stakes are 18". Therefore, using them in your particular flooded field will not be a problem. You are correct. IMO, shells are the way to go. Shells are the FBs. They will have the same pulling power. They have an extremely realistic paint scheme. A good 5 m.p.h wind or more will make them move on the stake. My field duck decoy spread consists of eight dozen GHG Mallard shells, two dozen GHG Black Duck shells, five dozen Deadly Decoy Mallard headless wind socks, up to ten spinners, 12' vortex and a five position homemade Mallard Tree. Now, I don't run all of it at once. It all depends on my mood usually and wind speed. Self setup isn't always easy.
