I started the season with a whole rig of brand new dekes. Had a nice mix of foamers, plastics and even some hand carved cedar blocks.

Here's some pics of what one season does to a sea duck rig. :yes:

Do you fill your plastic decoys up with foam after they are shot, and if so how does that work?

Looks like you had them right in the decoys. That's why we have an off season, to get them ready for next year!
