    Congratulations Jeremy. Me and my cousin won a case of them in a tournament last summer. I already had a bunch of jugs that I made so I gave them all to my cousin. I haven't seen them in action but he has used them and really likes them.

    got them today.

    a set of two jugs. comes with the jugs 1 lb weights in each, and swivels and hooks. i cant wait to try them. ive never fished weighted jugs. if they do well ill add to them to fill a bucket. they would be a perfect addition when fishing for eaters with rods. just toss a few of these out anchor close by and fish with rod and reel.:wink:

    thel look like there really thought out and are slim and look like the design will work great. hopfully i can get out soon and test these.

    Yeah, those jugs look pretty cool but they will not catch any more fish than ones you can build up yourself, but it's cool you got a couple for free. Those things are pretty expensive here at the Bass-Pro shop, about $12 a piece, which seems like a lot to me, especially when you can get some 6ft noodles at wal-mart for a few dollars, you can make 8 or 9 jugs with two noodles usually with stuff you can find laying around the house, old trotlines will work pretty good for jug main lines especially if they still have the swivels on them and you can pick up railroad spikes from around any railroad track to use for weights, just drill a hole in the spiked end and tie them on to the bottom of the main line. Jugs don't have to look fancy to work, as far as I know the catfish don't seem to mind how they look. Heck, I've seen weed eater line tied to jugs for the main line and it works pretty good. The thing I like about noodles is they take up a lot less space than milk jugs or coke bottles, and you can stow the hooks in the foam. Good luck.

    It's all about what works best for you. For my type of jugfishing, Bert's jugs just don't provide the long distance visibility I need, but I can certainly see how they would work great for some folks.

    i like the design. they are flat and will stack in a 5 gallon bucket and they to can hook the hook in the foam. and i dont know. they pretty bright.

    and without even being on the water yet ive figured out a new idea lol.

    if you have seen the vids they show how they flip from yellow to red when there hit hard or a fish is on. placing a glow stick in the red side basically turns on a light switch when a fish is on.:wink:
