I get a lot of fish deadsticking it for 30 seconds. I think a lot of times the fish will go for it and stop on the fall. Then hit it after it is deadsticked. I have seen this while sightfishing. So, I am not always so quick to reel the bait to a new spot.

You want to make sure you watch your line for a twitch and try not to have to much slack in it. A nice strong hookset is a must if fishing texas rigged. Wacky doesn't require a hard set. But, still a nice hookset with the proper hook will almost always get the fish in the boat.
