I run Texas style too.
Usta make a loop on one end for a carabeaner, run the line thru the deke, then crimp a weight on the other.
I hunt in moving water and my dekes were dead.
Changed it up a bit.
Now I have a crimp loop on the deke, and the carry loop on the other, with the weight sliding on the mono.
The loop on the deke made em come alive. Now they course left and right, like swimming birds.
