There isnt wind or current and the small drop weights are just enough to hold them in place in the event of a small breeze. Your downfall on using a texas rig for a diver area would be boat traffic, tide, and wind. If a boat comes up the creek and starts creating a wake, or the wind kicks up, or theres some waves picking up your decoys- those longer lines are going to become a tangled mess. If the creek youre hunting stays pretty mellow with wind and waves though, you could be ok I guess. I prefer long lines myself, theyre pretty simple to pick up and put out even if you are doing it on foot.
