I made me 6 jugs like the library instructions said out of pool noodles and pvc. Had to put white duct tape on them..texas law. Anyway, dropped my kayak below Mcqueeny netted a bunch of perch and went looking for big cat water. The guad changes alot from shallow to deep and there was alot of boaters around so I drifted over some shallow stuff and was all by myself. I found a real nice bend with huge rocks at least 10 feet down. set five jugs out at different depths. The sixth one wasn't rigged..guess I forgot. I didn't have any tarred twine in the boat so I rigged it with 50 pound mono. The jugs drifted around the bend while I fished DK's on a slip bobber. I motered to them and saw a huge shadow dart away from the mono jug. The perch was destroyed. Guess he got away cause the mono jug was way behind the others. I liked the bend alot so I motered way up the creek and set em down again...nothing. wasted alot of time with small channel cats and did one more drift with the jugs right at dark. I watched em as they drifted around the bend. I was tired and disgusted cause I work so hard and no bites. As I motered toward the bend I saw the top of a jug dancing around the outside bend. I cut the moterand paddled in to see an 8 pound yellow cat trying to swim down. He seemed whooped till I tryed to pull him in. I ended up letting go of the jug for fear of popping the 50 pound test. I collected the other jugs and came back and picked up the yellow cat he fought a bit more but was pretty tired. I was so amazed and proud..I let him go...Man I am so hooked on jug fishing. I only got bites on the jug with mono line. The water was fairly clear could this be why? Lots of work but it was fun.
