Collapsible leaf bags for pre-rigged lines.

Postby Driven51387 » Tue Apr 01, 2014 2:27 pm

I was at lowes this afternoon an ran across some collapsible leaf bags and thought they may work for running my layout spread.just wondering if anybody has used them with good success. These are PVC lined and feel fairly sturdy. I've got a small rig and trash cans are good but they take up an awful lot of room even when they are stacked inside each other. I could keep these out of the way much easier and keep the deck a lot less cluttered. Any thoughts? Sorry if this is a repeat thread

They are likely the same Ryobi bags I use for my loose decoys. I have three that I keep all the singles in.

I've tried running my longlines out of them, but the decoys get beat up pretty good. I personally prefer slotted bags. That said, if you've got a heavy enough mainline, they will work.

I have used them and really like them. yes they are cheap and sturdy. i did buy a tarp grommit kit to put a drain hole in the bottom of mine i routinely run 7 bags in a 16ft yukon. kind of cramped until the dekes are out then they collapse and stack in a corner

Thanks for the input guys They are the ryobi bags. I figure they can't get any more banged up than they do the way I've been running them. I'm gonna get a couple and try em out with my partner this weekend just to see if that is the way we want to go. I run 1/4 main line and it's pretty stiff stuff so I think the tangles should be minimal.
Thanks again,
T.J.

I use the Ryobi bags and they work great.

That's all we use for long line. We put the first weight in and just feed the line in with decoys attached. We leave the second anchor out of the bag or tie it to the handle. When you go to set the lines pull the line out and not the decoys. They will tangle if you pull on decoys. When you pull the line out of the bag the decoys will follow. We can put 12-14 decoys in a bag which is perfect for a 100 foot line.
