I have never used jugs and I am going to give it a try. Hopefully at the lake this weekend. I looked through the library and found some great ideas on building jugs and have decided to go with the design provided by Ben Luna(Gentleben) and Randy(RandyTX). Thanks for sharing your design.:big_smile: I still need to decide on the rigging to use. I was thinking about khale hooks or circle hooks but don't know for sure. Any suggestions? Also, I have no clue about type of line, sinkers, etc I should use. I need a crash course in Jugging 101 and I need it fast. I have to place a call to the Department of Game tomorrow and make sure about the laws and my interpretation of what I have read about using jugs in Va. Any heads up info from anyone that know about jugs in VA would be much appreciated. I was thinking about buying my Tn licenses and giving it a try on the Tn side. I haven't fished the Tn side since my Tn licenses expired back in the spring. I will be trying this at South Holston reservoir and the lake is at an all time low (except when it was drained to do repair on the dam many years ago). My usual good spots are now dry land and I am having to find new spots as the water level continues to drop. That is one reason for trying jugs, cover more area in a shorter time. The other reason is meat.:big_smile: The conditions are changing every weekend and a great spot that I found three weeks are is now dry land. I also would like to get any tips on fishing (searching) in such a fast changing environment. If I don't get to try them this weekend I will try them next weekend for sure. I am sorry if the subject of Jug fishing has been covered from top to bottom. I did a search and came up with a little information but I know there are those of you on here that don't mind sharing your wisdom with others and God knows I need all the help I can get.:big_smile: Thanks for any and all help.
