HEAVY HAULER RAFT O' DUCKS ANCHOR SYSTEM

Postby JEJA92 » Sat Jul 06, 2013 8:26 pm

Been looking for the fastest and easiest long line system for the price. Have had my eye on the Heavy Hauler raft o ducks anchor system. Has anyone owned or used one that has had any good or bad experiences with it? Or if someone thinks they know a better way to go when it comes to long lines. Thanks :biggrin:

I tar my own lines using white nylon rope in 100ft lengths using thinned down roof tar with mineral spirits $10 per line . To this I tie 12 inch droppers using your favorite tangle free plastic line on the side that connects to the decoy I tie a quality ball bearing snap swivel which I connect to the keel (some to the front and some to the back) . I usually put about a dozen per line at varying intervals like 3 about a foot apart then the next one 6ft away to avoid the tin soldier look. These stay permanently on the line. I use the tarp material collapsible lawn garbage cans to store them in . I use dog leash snaps on each end , I do take the weights off . To set a line I grab a weight from the wight bucket clip it to the dog leash snap drop it over as I drift down wind feeding out decoys as I go then snap on another wight drop it and motor back up wind for the next line. The collapsible "garbage cans" fold flat out of the way and its time to hunt. Doing it like this 10 dozen decoys fit in 5 cans and go out very quickly.

Doctari is the best in my opinion. They get your stuff to you really quick and their quality is second to none. We use their lines and clips mostly for sea duck rigs but for diver hunting as well.

I use them for divers down here in FL when Im hunting the large bays. I like em. I still have yet to find a system that is efficient in my boat to lay them out on the long lines and to keep them from tangling when they are done being used.

We set them directly back into slot bags. We start with one weight and roll all the slack around that weight up to the first decoy and all that goes into the first slot. Then the slack and the next decoy goes into the second slot and so on. Then the last slot will house the last decoy along with the anchor. Hope this helps.

Also I don't know what your using for anchors. But I use the old window weights. Lots of weight in a small package. Try fit into the slots along with the dekes better.

I use just 5lb dumbell plates. I dont own slot bags though for my decoys because I hunt out of my jon boat and there is limited space. I always detach the decoys from the main line when picking up and depending what kind of time I have I will just throw them in the bottom and sort em when I get to the ramp. Usually I put about 1/2 dozen on a short piece of rope with the snap clips until all of em are done, but even that gets tangled and clustered.
