I see you have pulled ahead of me!!!! I'll have to get back on the stick and pick up at least 3 doz more hahahah. I am a weeee bit concerned with how many I can haul, worse case iiI have my buddy run a second boat....but we will get there! I'm getting pretty excited! One question for you. Do you use more weight to hold these shells than a standard floater?

I have not tried long lines yet. We are going to run one decoy with a weight. Tie the next decoy onto the tail of the first with 8' or so of line. I plan on running series of 2-4 decoys per weight. (I am afraid to drag them into place on longs is my reasoning.)

I called lowes on this product. They said it is made to fit 1" of pipe. They said it's around 5/8" thick foam. (May work on your little shells but I would get the 3/4" ID version myself as it will not hold as much water when you pick the shells up).

Looks good. DOn't be afraid to spread the big decoys out more and fill in with floaters. You can make 3 or 4 dozen look like a huge flock on the water. Leave a tail close to you and swing out a landing path right through the midddle of the floaters. The geese will hook and fly right up the cut and land in the trough. Also, place a pair of the prettiest mallards in the open by the path. That is where the mallards will land :thumbsup:

When you guys take these decoys back to the field for a hunt do you leave the foam on or remove it?

I've got more than 80 now so I left 2 dozen without foam, just for fields. When I need a big field spread I'll just use the foam ones too, in with Bigfoots. I don't think it will matter.
