Hey folks........gonna take the boys this weekend and throw some jugs out for something different on a lake since the rivers are in major flood. I am making some Pool Noodle Flagging Jugs as found in the BOC Libray. I have been reading to let the weight hit the bottom, then add 2 feet of slack to the line before tying off. These would then be anchored jugs using this method. If there is that much slack in the line how is the cat going to pull the jug under enough to set the hook? Do you put your bait higher or what, say 4' from the sinker? I am going to run a single hook per jug to make things easier. I am thinking about some long line on a least a few of these jugs because I'll be jugging during the day and would like to hit some deep holes also but it seems like most of you use very short lines and fish in the middle of the water column. Any suggestions or advice appreciated. There are Blues, Channels and Flats on the lake. I used the MONSTER NOODLES from Wally World that take 1" sched 40 PVC to fit the hole, noodles are 12" long, PVC is 24" long with a 6" piece of 5/8" rebar inside to tip the jug. Cushioned each interior end of the PVC with dense foam to cushion the shock of the rebar and wrapped the top with reflective tape. 12 of them fit neatly in a knock-off milk crate style tub. They turned out pretty sweet thanks to the BOC Library!!!!
