So last year I made up some texas rigs for some of my Decoys. It worked OK I guess.
This year I plan to get rid of the rest of my strap weights and convert the rest to J weights. This is so I can use some of them in deeper water if need be.
I bought the DO-IT mold for the weights and ordered the rest of the components from various online sources. I am going to try black surgical tubing and black shock(bungee) cord and see which I think will work best. I bought the Nylon rings and hog rings as well as the hog ring pliers.
I may leave a long tag end to connect to the weights in case the rubber fails. Any other tips for rigging this way?
I am mostly going to make them 4oz but will make some 6oz or maybe 8oz for the few Goose decoys I have.
Anybody else use J weights on their decoys? Any negatives to this rigging style?
Does it work well? Also do they hold well if I use them in the river?
