I've got a Stealth boat and was thinking I might get into a situation in which I need to longline my decoys. The water depth varies quite a bit, from 1' to possibly 15', and I'm looking for a solution to floating some diver decoys without having to get 20' lines on each decoy. Longlines seemed to be the way to go but I'm not sure if I should buy a rig (looking at Doctari and Rig Em Right) or make my own. Anyone have any insight into longlines? Thanks in advance for your help.

What is your current or tide?  If you are in a pond or lake should not be a problem.  The wind may move them around to look natural  on flowing water, I have found long lines tend to be just that long lines of decoys that don't look natural.  I have gone to using a series of parralel long lines to produce the desired group setting.  I use lines that are 100 to 150 feet long  with anchors on both ends.  Decoys have 4 foot lines with a clip on each to attach to the main long line.  I do put a 2 oz barrel sinker on each to send the line straight down and not be seen.  Hope this helps.
