Cheap saltwater line....

Postby chrispbrown27 » Tue Jul 25, 2006 5:58 pm

What I'm looking for is some cheap 200lb test saltwater line for texas rigging the decoys this year. Since I'm up in Illinois there isn't a big market for that sort of thing here. So far what I've found online is in the 100 dollar range for 1000 yards or so. Is that a good price?
Thanks in advance

Pretty close, just depends where you buy it.
Does your local home improvement store carry "clear" weedeater string?
That works great for texas rigs as well.

Dekoy line

If by texas rig you mean you wan to be able to bundle them up instead of wrapping, I would just by the plastic decoy line and tie good knots. I have mine all rigged with it and can throw 4 doz decoys in less than 5 minutes. Picking them up only takes as long as it takes to grab them all and then tie a quick overhand knot. If you meant something else by texas rig, please explain.
