I finally, received written response from KDWP today regarding catfishing jugging in KS. Here is what was their response: Jug fishing is not legal in Kansas. Have a nice day. Tonya Hoeme Fisheries & Wildlife Division 620-672-0797 email@example.com I bet she has an attitude! NOW, here is the verbal response I received from KDWP - wichita regional office (1-316-683-8069) when I spoke with a conservation officer named Hastings. Is Catfish jugging legal in KS? NO, --- but read on However, what they are saying is illegal is using a jug (whatever size, type, color) with a line attached but not anchored. That is the key. Don't call them catfish jugs. THEY are setlines. They cannot have more than 2 hooks attached to the line and they must be ANCHORED. Anchored means attached to some object (i.e., tree) on shore, anchored with a weight in the water, or anchored to a tree out in the water. They cannot free float. You must also have your name and address located on them. Also, no more than eight (8) setlines per person and two rod/reel combo (unless paying the extra fee for the third line). Reality is that you are jug fishing, however, you are anchoring them. Makes my day, now I can proceed with buidling my setlines. Also, the size, shape and color of the bobber (jug) is not an issue in KS except that the material that was inside cannot have been hazardous.
