Being a kayak fisherman, I have been considering leaving the cattin' rods on the bank and carrying some small jugs like the kits made by Wild Wolf Products, a long-time Catfish1.com sponsor (http://www.wildwolfproducts.com/). In this way I can deploy the jugs over structure that I am actively fishing, staying in the area of the jugs (within 50 yards or so) and never leaving them. I could then retrieve them quickly when I want to move on, or when another fisherman would like to fish the area too. I am wondering if anyone else has tried fishing this way. I have seen where kayak fisherman ditch the rods in various ways, such as using a string paddle similar to those used for kite string, but larger, to hand-deploy bait. The great advantage of jugging with these jugs (where legal) is that they are very compact (compared to regular jug methods) and you can cover a large area with just a few of them. I am interested if anyone else has explored this kind of fishing.
