    That's my favorite catfishing method! Of course we do it redneck style LOL!! If anyone ever wants to go let me know and we'll hit the water. I probably do it different that most:)!! Everyone that's ever been with me will tell you ' You'll have a great time'!

    Got some jugs ready to use this spring if we get enough water to use the ramps in the lakes around here. What do you do different than most juggers?

    My trick is how I catch the bait.

    We didn't get to do alot jugline fishing last year, someone wouldn't let it rain down here in Tx. So the water levels got to low and they stopped all boats on the lakes around here till just recently.
    I'm looking forward to jugging this year though.:)

    I fish mostly Tawakoni and Fork , sometimes the Sabine River. Did real well last spring on all 3. Caught our limit most every time, catfish on Taw. and Fork and Whites on the Sabine. Tried Lake of the Pines a few times but didn't have much luck.

    Hey guys. Welcome to the board. The skips usually start running around Greenville around early to mid May, and are, as far as I can tell, are usually somewhere in the area until about September or so. Look for warm water inlets or fish jumping around dikes. Throw white or silver jigs or a sabiki rig.

    I used to jug fish a lot, but it got to where I was burning 8 gallons of fuel just rod and reel fishing, so I quit jugging, more or less. Still got some jugs, though. I usually jugged in July or August, but I've got some buddies that have been doing pretty good in May.

    Good Luck!

    I jug fish sometimes at the lake in whiteville do pretty good for the most part. I have some swimming pool noddles I made up insted of jugs like them alot better, they dont take up as much room in the boat and dont get tageled as bad.

    I do quite a bit of jugfishing, mostly in the current of the Arkansas River, or in the current in the outlet cove at the nuclear plant. I've tried jugging in lakes a few times, but haven't had much luck.

    Rip, we use white qt. castrol jugs. There easy/cheap to get (oil change places) and don't take up to much room. If we get a 35 or so lb cat on one it'll hold it down for several seconds but it normally will come up. We also jug mostly at night! Nothing like being on the water at night and hearing nature!

    Tony,

    I fish the Mississippi River 90% of the time, the Sunflower about 9%, and private ponds (for bait or bas...bas...bas...bait) about 1%. There is a discussion going on the MDWFP about whether oxbows are public or private, but I'm putting in at public ramps, so I'm not too worried! ;)

    You fishing mainly on the rez?

    What's your user name on the MDWFP site?

    I fish anywhere I get a chance, but mostly the Rez.

    Tony,

    I'm dudlbugr over there as well. Mostly reply on topics involving catfishing; a few on hunting and anything on trespassing. I think Dennis does a good job running the site. We'll have to get together for a fishing trip this spring or summer!

    I too used to love to jug! Listening to one of the jugs get struck hard is hard to beat. After a few of the guys on here got me to try rod and reel fishing jug fishing became a thing of the past! Watching that rod tip bend just keep on bending. Its just hard to beat that...............
