I have been working on a new jug fishing setup to make things simpler to handle and easy to keep organized. Its still in prototype stage but basically works like this: You have an air compressor reel that stores your lines. Each line has trotline quick connect swivels on each end, a weight, and depth stops. Basically they look like this: Trotline swivel>2oz weight>stop>>>>>>stop>>>>stop>>>stop>>>swivel>optional weight The jug attachment looks like this: Screw>>washer/epoxy/glue>>bottlecap>>>washer/silicone>>>wingnut Here is how it works: You take a line off the reel and hook it onto an anchor weight rigged up from a cast peice of lead with an eye screwed into it using the bottom quick connect. As you let it out, you attach your baited "trots" using more quick connects at whatever depth you wish to fish. When the line hits the bottom, you simply wrap it 2x around the screw on the end of the bottle and tighten the wingnut up to set the depth of your jug (the thin layer of silicone sealant on the inside of washer helps to grip the line), and let out the line all the way and unhook. The weight on the end of the line keeps the slack down in the water preventing you from catching yourself and d*** skiers. Anyways, like I said, its still in prototype stage and may be abandoned at any time, but I thought it might get everyone thinking for better ways to jug fish. I know what they say about reinventing the wheel, but if nobody tried to reinvent the wheel we wouldn't have steel belted radials.
