    I've noticed several people asking for advice on the best juggin techniques. I use the extra large swimming noodles. You got to wedge you a piece of PVC pipe through that center hole. Run your line through there so it can't rip through that stirofoam. Cut your noodle into pieces about 18" long. I use gorilla glue to stick strips of reflector material incase you run em at night.

    Anybody got any other good juggin techniques?

    The jugs I am using now are made of 3" schedule 40 pvc cut into 1' lengths with caps on them. We screwed metal eyes in the middle of the tubes to tie the drops on and put reflective tape on them because we jug mostly at night. This is kinda expensive but you cannot wear them out and I haven't found a fish yet that can keep them under.

    Heres ours. Even comes with a spool that allows you to store the line and adjust the depth. Add a glow stick to the molded in hole and at night there easy to see without using lights.

    Heres the pre made ones http://www.wildwolfproducts.com/assembledjugs.htm
    Also have our http://www.wildwolfproducts.com/tattletail.htm TattleTail jugs also. These are some of the best jug kits on the market.
    Easy to store the line when one gets finished using them. Also can store them easy when not using them also.

    I use 2 liter soda jugs painted bright yellow on the outside for high visibility at long dtheistances. I put 3 or 4 ounces of clean gravel or scraps of lead inside each jug; it keeps the jug from blowing so badly in the wind, and when a fish hits, the weights slide down into the neck and keep the jug in a tipped position. I cut a smaller swimming pool noodle into 1" thick disks, enlarged the center hole, then glued a jug cap into the hole. That lets me wind more line around the neck of the jug without it slipping off, and also gives me a place to stick my hooks for storage.

    I'll tell yall what else i've done for a quick fix at night. Go to Wally-world and buy some glow sticks. I cracked em open and slid em in my 2 liter coke bottle, tore the coke wrapper off. Then tied my line around the neck with my hook. You can see those jugs from a mile away with no flashlight.
