    Leave them attached. Do what powder Keg said only unclip the last weight and leave it in the bottom, of the boat (keep a couple extras in the boat b/c its dark and they can hide!). If left on top makes the can heavy and can tip over. Makes a mess. ~12" droppers. Surgeons loop every ~6' on the #5 dyed main line. dropper gets a bowline to that. Bowline to a cheap big coastal lock swivel - to the decoy. Tried the rest this is the best!

    I use 18" drop lines. Dog hasn't had a problem. Yet.

    That is how I do it and I've hunted with folks that clip on the decoys each time they go out. It is a heck of a lot more of a pain in the you know what to clip on decoys each hunt. The way Jeff does it is so quick and easy. You can deploy several lines in no time. It's even pretty simple to do by yourself in cases where you don't have any help.

    Just my $0.02:tu

    No matter what way you decide to do it, just make sure you practice the deployment before hand. Sounds like you have some experience already but no matter how good the system is it can end up in a mess in the dark the first time that you attempt to do it. Good luck sounds like you have some really good suggestions. :tu
