don't get carried away with it mallard. i rigged every single decoy i own with texas rigs and had a few float away(got them back) because it was too deep and no veg. so leave a dozen or so strap weighted. just my .02

After hunting a full season with the swivels I would not recommend them. I lost 7 rigs due to the swivels coming undone. they didn't break I don't think they just came unsnapped and when I threw the decoy out the line and weight went one way and the decoy another. I didn't loose any decoys but the rigs are on the bottom of the lake. I am gonna try something different next year.

I agree with mink, I had some rigged straight through the keel an some rigged with swivels, I lost 4 rigs cause of the swivels!! My suggestion is rig em straight through the keel! More permanent but at least you won't loose em!!

I had problems with the straight swivels but the black swivels with the turn up on the snap did just fine.

hey jaxx, how long are your lines by the way........jw looks about 6 to 7 feet


All of mine are 5 feet. I figure even if they dont touch, they at least grab that ahold of the grass. Texas rigging is only effective if you can walk to them, if you have to pick the up in the boat, you might as well go back to the chunk and whine method. :lol:



Yep, I agree. Plus if you have 15 of them with 12 ft of line. They will be a mess.

Works good on teal.

I thought I'd chime in here and give a little tip. I had the Idea last season to do something similar to what minkcreek did with the swivels. I instead used trot line clips. Mine weren't texas rigged but were the old wind up method with strap weights. I started to t Rig but went with this instead. Well It didn't work. I too had decoys float off due to the clips coming unsnapped and resulting in a floating deke and a lost rig. It wasn't even just when I chunked em either. We would be sitting there and one would come lose and just float off! It was a pain. The only thing I liked about it was the ability to change the rig from one decoy to another. So basically I didn't have all my decoys rigged. If I took 2 dzn one day I would rig that many. If I took divers one day and puddlers the next day I would switch the rigs. That was pretty cool. Too bad it didn't work out. I'm gonna be doing some t riggin here pretty soon.

I'm using saltwater snap swivels on my jeck line and haven't had any problem. Pretty heavy gauge with a pretty price to go along with it.

i cut all the snaps off and left the swivels. I looked and looked for a cheap alternative way to attach the decoys that would be secure. I have decided to just zip tie the swivel to the decoys. Zip ties are cheap and pretty strong. I will let you guys know how it works after the season starts and I get to field test my theory.

Just Wondering... Does any of this rigging work well diver hunting, since you have to be in the deep most of the time...?

we hunt a lot of divers over them but about 6 feet is as long as I would recommend making them. anything over that and I imagine it would be a mess.

I found a company who sells lead weights at a very reasonable price. The Grateful Lead Sinker Company. Their website is down at the moment but their phone number is (850) 962-5865. About a month ago i bought 60lbs of 6oz egg weight sinkers with 1/8 inch hole predrilled and shipped for $130. Its the same place that Doc's buys thier weights. After buying the weights, line, and crimps i had right at $1 a piece in each rig. They sell their weights for a $2.05lb, which makes a 6oz weight $0.75 a piece. cheapest i could find anywhere. Only took 2 days to recieve my shipment as well.
