I started longlining my puddler decoys. It works awesome.the fasest way in the world to set decoys with the hastle of tangles.A guy on Ebay set me up with some kick but rigs for doing this. any body else tried longlining thier puddlers?
i have my mallards on longlines, (6 dozen) i use half a soda can full of lead on each end, and i use pop up leaf bags to store them, 2 dozen per bag. same type of bag as the drake pop up decoy bag. i'll post a picture later
I hunt small calm water and big rough water both with longlines.Its so simple its amazing I use lots of anchors and zigzag my decoys back and fourth leaving slack between the anchors to keep my spread from looking like a bunch of strait lines it seems to work well.yhose anchors you posted look a lot less expensive than the anchors I use I bought those easy anchors but I will say the ez anchors work really well in rough seas.but as for those bags I quit using decoy bags cause with the snaps on the decoys I clip all my decoys together in bundles this makes it easy to move large spreads of dekes from the tguck to the boat.
I HUNT RINGNECK WILL THIS WORK WITH THEM TOO? WILL THEY LAND IN THE BACK OF THE LINE OR IN FRONT? SHOULD I PUT MY COOTS IN THE SAME LINE WITH THE RINGNECKS, OR BY THEMSELVE? OR NOT USE THEM IN A LINE AT ALL. THANKS FOR THE HELP
I have all my puddlers on long lines style. Some are 2 to up to 6 on a line. I use mostly 12 oz mushroom anchor for up to 4 S Mags decoy with a soft bottom. I'd double that if a current.
My diver usea 2.5 lb mushroon style weight with a big wire loop. I like the mushroom as is tips over so it grabs the bottom.
