    I am a avid jug fisher in Lebanon, Tn. And of course I always take a pole also, I started jug fishing just this past spring and have landed over 300 pounds of Channels and a few flaties. I would like to know what type of jugs other uses and then I will share my idea.

    well Don first off you should have posted this in the altenative methods section, you will catch less crap over it and will more than likely get more response. With that being said I have used juggs myself, I made mine out of them swim noddels and pvc pipe wit a piece of rebar inside the pvc so it will tip up.

    I make mine out of 2" heavy pvc. Cut it in 1 ft lengths and put caps on the ends. I use an eye in the center of the jug. I originally put the eye in one end of the jug but when it had a fish on it they would pull them under when you tried to pick the jug up, after moving it to the middle the jug dances around when it has a fish on but they can't hold it under.

    I just use 32 oz gatorade jugs. Poke a hole in the cap just big enough to stick some mason twine thru. Tie the line inside to a flat washer so it cant pull thru the cap and tighten it down. The other end gets a swivel, and then whatever hook/leader combination I wanna use. Its simple, but it works. Its also cheap, which means i dont feel bad if something happens to one of my jugs (i watch them, but stuff happens).
