    I am new to jug fishing also, but have had some luck on the South end of the lake. I fish a cove behind my house and have caught quite a few blues in the 4 to 6 lb. range. I was fishing in18 ft. of water and was fishing from 2 to 4 ft. off the bottom. I use enough wt. to keep them from scattering everywhere. I know that most people fish shallow and chase them all over the lake. I set mine out and go back and check them every few hours.

    A lesson hard learned. If you fish deep water, put enough weigh on them to hold a fish. I had a bunch pulled into brush, I had to tie the lines around a boat cleat and break them. I now use a 2-4 ft. line in shallow water, or a brick on the bottom in deeeper water. I guess it depends on what kind of vegatation you have.
