Fair enough. Point remains, teal ain't really brain rangers. If you're bushwhacking in, I'd get em as light and cheaply as I could.yes, early teal. I'm sure I'll use them a bit later too, but early teal is the goal.
I don't use spinners or any electric dekes. Just floaters. I'm sorta simple and old fashioned that way.
I know you said you don't use spinners. But I would highly recommend getting a mojo dove for teal. Teal really like the fast spinning wings.Well I finally pulled the trigger and ordered up a dozen Higdon for $36.48 plus $5 shipping and a few bucks in taxes. Not too bad. I'll scrounge up some light weights and swivels and I have the line already. Unfortunately, the small ponds are drying up. May not be a lot of options.
