I do not think Kansas lakes have the numbers to support jug fishing. Trophy Blue and Channel fishing in Kansas lakes is not very prevalent. Our Flathead population is great. If you allow another method, it will be another hit to the population. Plus I do not see any way they could police it. They can't police trout lines, limb lines or hand fishing as it is. The other concern for me is, if you have a boat with say 3 people in it. Each is allowed say 5-10 jugs per person. One boat has put out jugs and covered and entire section of the lake or river. That doesn't let anyone else fish that area. We currently hold the Flathead world record. Lets not start allowing everyone to catch fish every way possible and ruin it. I just don't see why we need another method of catching fish.
They already allowed noodling down by Wichita a few years ago. I still don't know why they did that. At least it is after the spawn. Most people around here didn't bother to look up the regs though. They just heard that noodling was legal, so they all go to the river every spring here and catch all the large flatties during the spawn.
