Which would you recommend?

Would you have the sinker affixed in a stationary position, allowing the swivel/decoy to move up and down the line to adjust for tide movements?

Texas Rigging

Postby Cougar125 » Tue Jun 04, 2013 7:24 am

I find myself on delpoyment during this offseason, so I've ordered the stuff to make my own texas rigs for coastal hunting. I'm using 400#, 2mm mono with 2.2mm barrel crimps, 5/0 swivels, and 6oz pyramid sinkers. Like I said, I'm doing mostly coastal hunting where tides are definitely in play.

With the above stated, which of the following would you guys recommend?

Would you have the sinker affixed in a stationary position, allowing the swivel/decoy to move up and down the line to adjust for tide movements?

OR

Would you have the swivel/decoy affixed in a stationary position and have the mono adjust through the sinker?

swivel attached to the decoy. weight attached to one end of the line (look in my $11 texas rig how to thread) and loop on the other. this way the loop that you attach the clip to is at the decoy and not the bottom by the weight when you go to pick up the decoy.... so no wet hands and its easier to throw out decoys by hanging on the loop and giving a toss.
