This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I make and sell Texas Rig Decoy Weights. The standard is 3ft Tangle Free line. Non floating and UV resistant; 4oz sliding weight, barrel swivel, and 300# carabiner. Mechanically affixed crimps.

    Price is $30 for one dozen. Two or more dozen $25 each. Delivered by US Mail
    NO TAX NO SHIPPING FEES!!!

    I will add pictures if I ever figure out how. These are as good as you can get, and $5.00 to $7.00 less than the chain stores and quality guaranteed. They are American made by an American TRAP SHOOTER! Check the packaging and you will find that the chains weights come from China. If you know what a Texas Rig Decoy Weight is, you know what they look like.

    Call Jim Porter 662-694-1415 or e-mail at jporter4570@gmail.com for details

    Do they work in swift water? Where I hunt there is a 6 to 7 foot tide change so the current it strong also its about 20 feet deep. We use a one pound weight for each decoy and they still travel at times. Wondering if this would work under the conditions we hunt in.

    Thanks!

    I can't answer for 20 feet deep.The advantage we have in shallow water 5 6 feet is you don't have to get your hands wet and also you don't have a big tangle of line.I'm not sure how you could use a Texas rig. How are you wrapping your cord up now.?

    Additional line is $.04 per foot. That is my COST and that is all I send along. My profit is figured in the base price. I see no need to screw my hunting buddies just because they need something a little different.

    For a 6ft set, add $1.44 to the base price of $30 for one dozen ($31.44) or add $2.88 for two dozen or more at a base price of $25.00 for a two dozen price of $52.88. I still cover shipping and handling.

    Let me know and give me a day or two for a special order.

    Thank you for your interest Jim

    Swift water--Thanks for your interest! I am afraid that I cannot be all things for all people. I am positive that a 4oz weight or a bunch of weights stacked on the line would not help you if a pound will not hold. The line would be ok as it is 350# test but I don't have weights that would help you.

    I sure would like to come hunt with you though. It sure sounds like a ton of fun!!

    Again; Many Thanks for your note. Jim

    Great price. Best rigs for quick deploy/retrieval. Let me ask, have you ever considered a fixed sinker and sliding line through decoy with a loop on one end? Instead of picking up the decoy that is fixed to the line and following line down to the sinker to retrieve, you would pick up with decoy with the loop already near the decoy. Clip on the carabiner and your done.

    Saves the swivel cost as well.. Hands down best rigging method as long as you aren't switching out decoys.

    On a second look, that's exactly what you have done, just nicer with swivels! Great work. If I didn't have more than I could count, I would be purchasing yours!

    You are right. I do as you say, I just spent a little more money to make them "less" likely to tangle and weights slide more easily.

    If you have some---fine! Please tell a friend. This is how I intend to finance my shooting next year. Thanks Jim

    I'm thinking the coot shooter could put a crappie Yo Yo like we tie to trees in the spring that we tie to tree limbs on the decoys. I'm not sure you hill billy's know what one is but it works on crappie I'm just not sure of the length.
