If your fishing a texas rig do you peg the weight?

Do you think pegging keeps it from hanging up more?

Pegging the weight definitely helps you stay in contact with the bait. In heavy cover the weight and worm can easily separate and cause you to lose feel. If your weight is down the line on one side of a limb and the worm is on the other side it could prevent you from feeling a bite. Peg it.

I think he means the hook is "Texas Rigged" versus nose-hooked.

There's no such thing as a T-rigged drop shot. You are describing a drop shot that's rigged weedless instead of nose hooked. Drop shots have nothing to do with the posters question on pegging the bullet weight on T-rigs while fishing brush piles. Your drop shot weight that's 12" from the bait is also irrelevant to pegging the bullet weight on a T-rig to prevent the weight from sliding up the line. Different techniques with different pros and cons.
