I've never been able to make Texas-rigging work for me. From coils of line sticking up out of the water to the noise of hanging decoys banging against each other, to the accellerated wear from the loose decoys in the boat being stepped on by hunters and dogs. I like my decoys wrapped up and protected in bags. Of course, I've never been one to just toss out the decoys randomly. I like to individually place each one just so...and sitting on the water dry, not wet and shiny. Setting out (and, as far as that goes, picking up) decoys is a labor of love for me, not something I want to "get over with" as quickly as possible. But, that's just the way I am.
