Hey guys we are getting ready to make a bulk order of longline clips, what size is everyone looking for, 5in? Swivel or no swivel.

I prefer 5" with swivel. I do have a few older rigs that are with out swivels.
You want the bigger clips, for when it is cold, makes handling with cold wet hands easier.

Thats what I was figuring, I have used as small as 3in clips before and it is just a pain when it gets cold.

I purchased the 5in with swivels from Docarti for around 68 for 100 clips.

Okay, I took a look at them they seem to have a pretty good website, and decent prices. I might be able to beat the price on longlines but I doubt I can beat the clips those are real cheap!

And we are located near Pymatuning Lake if you know where that is? It is about 20 minutes west of meadville.

Yeah! They just redid their website! I really like it! It was a little out dated before hand.

Thats what I did. I ordered clips from them and made my own lines.

Yea, it is pretty nice.

And I am still trying to make some deals with some manufactures to see the best deal that I can get.

I got tired of monkeying around with clips and now I just tie my droppers to the mainline with a bow line knot. A little electrical tape to hold it in place on the line and I'm good to go. The decoys never move from their place and a few rolls of elec. tape are about 3 dollars. Cheaper, secure and no more having to attach the dekes every time out...... :thumbsup:
