    MY HEALTH HAS JUST ABOUT PUT ME ON THE BANK BUT I DO LOVE JUGGIN AND LOVE TO EAT THE BIGUNS. THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS I HAVE PUT 30 FOOT LINES ON AND JUST ENOUGH WEIGHTS ON THE BOTTOM TO HOLD THE BREAM DOWN THEN PUT MY HOOKS ON 14 INCH DROPS WITH TROT LINE CLIPS WHERE I CAN MOVE THEM UP OR DOWN. MOST FISH ARE CAUGHT AT 3 FEET THOUGH. THE LONG LINES MOSTLY SLOW THE MOVEMENT OF THE JUGS.

    Alabama is where I started jugging. Put the jugs in below lay dam at day break. By 10:00 am we would have 2 wash tubs full. Wern't no filleting then skinned every one. It would take the rest of the day to skin and bag what we had. There we could put the jugs against the dam here we have to start 1000 feet below the dam.

    Hey John,

    I use swim noddles my self, I cut them 12 inches long then slide a 24 inch pvc pipe through them. I cap one end and then cut a three inch section of rebar, insert into the pvc so that it will slide. I then attach a eye bolt to another cap and seal the inside of the cap, attach it to pvc end.I then attach a barrell swivel to the eye bolt add 5 ft of 50 lb test the attach a three way swivel with a 12 inch leader with a 5/0 circle hook. Then I attach another 5 ft of line to the third end of the three way with a 5 ounce bank sinker at the bottom. This keeps them from drifting, make sure when you set them out that your rebar end is positioned at the short end of the jug(opposite end of eye bolt). When a fish hits you can here the rebar slide through the pvc and it will make a loud popping sound. The jug will flag, I also put reflective tape on the wieghted end so that when it flags you can see them with your spot light at night.youtube.com/watch?v=im89sa-gfrk check out this youtube for my jugs.

    Hey Frank, is that your white truck in the background of your avatar? That almost looks like Walker's Landing on Little Emory.
