    I really cant tell if this is a serious question or not hehe :crazy:

    Not any different that when the old timers broke a willow branch off and tied the twine to it... Or the legendary vision of Huck Fin snoozing with the twine tied around his toe :cool2:

    sounds like a cool way to catch em.. you want real fun, then tie it off on a 10' john boat or smaller. feel like JAWS!!!! pulling the boat around. ahh..

    good luck

    Make sure to check your local laws. Some states are real strict about what you can use and how you use it. For instance in Texas a jug line is attached to a free floating device and can have a max of 5 hooks. Has to be orange(commerical) or white(non commerical). I dont know if what your trying to do would be considered a jug line, a trotline, neither, or something in between.

    if you are smart you will get you a 1 lbs bluegill and use it for bait. there are some monstersin the river. i know a guy out here who pulled a 63lbs and a 40 the next day. he was bank fishing down here in the lower colorado. sounds like it could work though. as long as there isnt a lot of noise in the boat while you are fishing.

    If you do catch a monster, how to you intend to land it? If the fish is fighting, pulling in line by hand will be no fun. Then again, this could be a new version of the "Nantucket sleigh ride".

    I would definantly suggest useing a fishing pole with a reel attatched. JMHO. Or, set some bank lines, and go check them periodically. A string with a hook, and weight thrown over the side of the boat does not sound logical or practical to me.

    Suit yourself amigo. If it were me, I'd definitely have a bungee chord or something similar attached to the line, so you'll have at least a little bit of give. If you just use straight chord with weight & hook, then something will have to give if you get a biggun on..... my guess would be the chord or the hook. Use a bungee chord, a piece of an old inner tube, or something.

    Good luck. Let us know how it works. I still think a rod & reel would be much more fun.:big_smile:

    Never thought of that, but seems like a good idea
