Otherwise I would use the throw the decoy out and use a fish pole to retrieve (use tanglefree or some other single strand line so the hooks don't get caught...) I have a few areas I have hunted like that and even had red fish hit the zara spook I used for bird & decoy retrieval.

I want to devise some way of throwing a half dozen or so decoys out from the bank and then be able to bring them back without ever getting into the water. Any ideas?
I have thought about attaching some fishing line to a small gang rig and reeling it in after the hunt.
Any ideas of how I could get the decoys out and back in without walking in thick mud?
