    Here Is some info I found out on jug fishing
    Also Include the links.

    It is legal in Kansas as long as it is anchored to something,which is the main purpose of the Floating LimbLine. It can also be used as a straight jug fishing device in states that allow it.

    JUGLINE: Juglines are restricted to no more than five (5) hooks per line and 20 juglines per person. A legal jugline is a vertical line suspended from a nonmetallic or nonglass floating device, drifting free or anchored and has:
    • owner’s name and address attached;
    • been attended at least once every 24 hours.

    Kansans might relate to it as jug-fishing (which is illegal in Kansas).

    It is legal in Kansas as long as it is anchored to something, It would take a big weight to anchor a jug!!!!

    I hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!
