I have two vib duck butts I usually throw out if it's clam. If there is any wind, I don't bother. Most of my are water keel and seem to move enough.

We have 4 vibe butts that we'll use sometimes on a dead calm day, not sure if they really help that much but am sure they don't hurt.

surgical tubing works great. I have hooked it up to a tent stake it works great here. We don't have motion deke's and it was deadly last year.

A really wierd thing we did a long, long time ago was to put some peanut butter on the keel in the early season. Minnows will come up to eat it and quiver the decoy nicely. Amazing the things you'd come up with when you were much younger.

In addition to the "quaking duck butt" that I have, I have some 'wind-sock' type decoys that have the fabric wings out stretched....when there is a decent breeze, the wings flap a bit and it looks like a pair of mallards hovering about to land. The sit on poles out with the rest of the decoys.

set a stake 15 yds from the blind and tie surgical tubing to it.

tie decoy line or heavy monofillament line to surgical tubing and run it to another stake that is 40yds from the blind

tie a loop on the stake and run line through loop and back to the blind.

we pull and hold on the line until we have ducks that are interested and then release the line. It really looks cool, tlike ducks have just skiied into the dekes. the more surgical tubing the better IMO.
