Like others, I think this would be fine if you're hunting hard bottom using like 5 decoys. But for the soft marsh bottoms putting out 30-50 decoys each hunt using a pirogue, I just don't see it as practical. I converted all mine to homemade Texas Rigs/Rig Em Right a few year's back and love it. A rice hunter with hundreds of dekes out won't pay to have these contraptions sit out in their pond all season long.

Novel idea, just seems it has limited practical application, especially considering the cost.

Hunting open waters on a windy day and using only 8oz will not cut it.

Thanks for the link. We offshore fish, so we have all the line, crimps and crimping pliers we need, and the decoys already have weights, so we will just re-use those. That is a great site for that though.

Do you have any tips or tricks you picked up doing that many? Anything that did or didn't work while you were rigging them?

Its not that bad at all, 4 of us knocked it out in a couple of hours between beers. I am not sure what weights you currently use but we did the same, as far as trying to use existing weights. The egg shaped weights are the way to go for sure. We went with the 4 oz and they work fine for us.

I haven't put eyes on the dekes yet since we are getting them through a co worker of one of my brothers, but I assume they just have strap weights. Is the any real issues with using strap weights for this?

No need for that expensive shite.

I can toss and retrieve my texas rigged decoys faster than messing with that.

They will work but seem to reach out and grab stuf they are not supposed to. We scrapped all straps for egg or banks type weights. You can buy the 6 slot molds for under 30 dollars and melt down the old ones. That was too much work for us and I think we ended up buying them for .60 or .70 a weight.
