    In Missouri do jugs have to be white? I was wanting to make some and need to know. I read the regs but didn't see anything about color.

    I don't think you have to worry about the color of your jugs. I am almost positive you can use any color that you want

    If you re going to make jugs with out anchors that just drift try using 4 or 5 different colors.This helps to point out the ones gettin hit when the action heats up and when multiple jugs have fish on.

    I have tried out just about every color, and the only ones I can REALLY see when on the water is the yellow jugs. Seems like white would show up the best, but by the time you have sunlight reflecting on the waves, the white blends in too well. I have no idea why the greens, blues don't work. Most Oklahoma lakes are a muddy brown color and the red jugs are really hard to see. Course, I didn't try that color on some of the blue water lakes. LOL

    Was at WW and they had some yellow ones in so I'll use the green for something else. I guess I can cut them adout a foot long and use them to mark fish before I set out my jugs.

    my jugs are blue and green because that was the only pool noodles dollar general had. If you watch at the end of swimming season dollar general sells their pool noodles very cheap.:big_smile:

    I'm kind of fond of the flesh-tones jugs...caramel is nice too. However, for fishing I prefer to use old bleach jugs with a strip of reflective tape for low light conditions.

    Thanks Dan you just got me in trouble:smile2: Was reading the posts and didn't know my wife was reading over my shoulder, and I made a remark to my self about the color of jugs and she heard me:smile2: She told me it would be three or four days before I could look at jugs again. Takes about that long for the swelling to go down in my eyes:smile2::smile2:

    I like my jugs almost any color as long as they are easy to grasp in and out of the water :crazy:.
