    We are on the fourth generation of jugs. We started with two liter coke bottles with string tied to the neck. Worked good but hard to store. The next idea was cutting up swimming noodles and running string through them worked great but bigger fish and time were hard on them. The next idea was gluing PVC in the noodle work good they stood up with a fish on but had two fish pull the PVC out. The one we have used for the past three years is 10" of noodle with 20" of PVC gorilla glued in it. We leave 6" out the bottom with the line tied to it and 4" out the top. We grab the PVC on the top and have landed fish up to 36lbs. with no problem. I will post some pics later.

    Why couldn't this topic have been in the high intensity forum! :smile2:


    I still use 2 liter jugs. Will probably do so for quite awhile at that. I like tossing night sticks in them and letting them glow as well as shoving some BBs in my jugs so they rattle. Tell tale of when I got a fish on in the middle of the night.
