    we seen a couple of younger guys (18 or 19 years old) jug fishing this weekend. they had a flathead that weighed 16 or 18 lbs. and couple of smaller fish. they were using duck decoys for jugs. it made me laugh for some reason. maybe some of you have seen this before but it was my first. i've seen stirofoam wig heads, noodles, antifreeze jugs.... but never decoys. looked like they worked well though.

    Hey I dont blame you that would make me laugh to, I havent ever seen anyone using duck decoys for jug fishing that some crazy stuff but apparently it worked because they caught some fish, but thats one crazy way of catching them.

    HEY DURING DUCK SEASON IT COULD DO DOUBLE DUTY.YOU WOULD BE FISHING PLUS ATTRACTING DUCKS BY PUTTING MOTION IN YOUR SPREAD.IF THE CATFISH PULLS THEM UNDER IT WOULD LOOK LIKE A DIVING DUCK.:smile2:

    i think thats a great idea. if the jugs get out of reach or site for a bit of time there pretty safe from fish thives looking for a free fish.

    think about it. cruising along the water and you see a duck floating most go right on by without thinking a thing. now a bobing bleach jug. some may stop to grab the fish.

    dont know if these fellas were that bright but maybe the decoys were camoflague for the underlying event.

    actually they were wood duck decoys painted red which made it that much funnier looking.

    I dont see why it wouldnt work??? just using something they already had around for something else, instead of having 2 seperate items!!!!

    me and the guys have discussed this, but have never done it. we don't run jugs too much, but if we do this year i will give it a shot.

    Never heard that one but I like the double duty idea. But in Texas they have to be white.
