We had a little longer than that due to the fog...damn weatherman screwed me again...LOL. Said wind was going to be west at 10-15 mph....obviously he was wrong! It was a slow morning, but we did scratch out a couple of bills...and we were facing southeast so, we didn't get the direct fireball....=)

I'd be a horrible gunfighter, I always end up with the sun in my face somehow.

I have never used a jerk rig before. Are they pretty easy to set up and use?

I made my own for about $10. I had some old rebar that I welded together to make a stake(lighter than an anchor for walk in hunts). I bought a bungy cord from runnings for a couple bucks and attached it to the stake. Then I tied 550 or paracord to the bungy. I just tied a loop in the cord where I wanted decoys to be tied on at. I think I made 8 loops so I can change it how I want. I use a small caribeener(sp) to attach the decoy to the string. Only thing I want to add is another weight or stake that I can put under the water close to me to keep the cord submerged when I pull on it.

My stake (anchor point) is my mojo stake. I have a small eye bolt attached below the water line. The string is approximately 100 feet. 33 1/3 yards is about the farthest out I like my decoys.

Only problem wih the picture. Mallards were piling in about 1/4 mile away. Same slough. Walk in situation. We picked up 90ish duck decoys, 12 honkers and two mojos into our sleds and set up where the birds wanted to be. By the time we got re-set up it was late. We still managed our 6 geese and 8 mallards but it took a while. Second set taken a couple hours later after the clouds rolled in. No panorama. Note the two juvie tundra swans that helped us bag two honkers. Swans were feeding among our honker floaters, bumping into them as they dipped. A cool sight. After we dumped the pair of honkers the swans just sat in the decoys for a few minutes. They didn't show any signs of distress until I emerged from the cattails to fetch the geese.
