    Got the making for mine now. Have you tried yours out yet and how did they
    work if you did. Is there any changes that you would make now??
    Was able to buy the noodles at Dollar General for a reduced price of, yep
    you guessed it, One Dollar.

    They work good and there super easy to see at night with the reflextive tape on the top and the bright colors make them easy to see in the day time

    Another nice thing about them is ur lines dont get all tangled up cause u can stick ur hooks right in the foam i used to have a bucket of corks i put on the end of my hooks too keep them from getting tangled no more messing with 40-50 corks any more is nice also

    also the eye hooks on the end i tie my line too are threaded and have 2 nuts one on top one on bottom this way they will never pull out like the screw in eyes do. just drill a hole in the end cap for them. Thats another reason i used 3/4 inch pvc easier to tighten the eyes than the 1/2 pvc theres not much room in the 1/2 inch caps to get the nuts started and the 3/4 inch pipe fits really tight in the noodle

    They look good to me. My new noodles I just ran the line through the middle of the noodles, then through the foam on one end to make them flag on that end.

    Thanks PeZ for the info. If you'll come over to Canton Lake when it cools down a little we'll try them out.

    How much do the materials cost for each one that you make? Id like to try to jug sometime because i have limited fishing time on boats. I would like to watch and float jugs around spots accessible by bank and see where the honey holes are. Ive tried a using mountain dew 20oz bottles and 50pound test and a circle hook. I would throw it inside the creek and let it drift by my fishin spot downstream of the mouth. I dont want to do it anymore because it took off and got too far for me to snag back in. I was fishing with JW 3 weeks later on a boat and ended up seeing it snagged on something close to where we were fishing. Im glad i found it because i dont want to pollute the waters and more than they are and have the chance of a catfishing being tortured by it until retreived.

    pcv= .40
    caps .44
    eye bolt .10
    nuts .5
    line .10 for 15'
    hooks .20
    reflective tape .40

    So they cost about 1.69 each if you make 20 at one time
    Or about 34.00 dollars for 20 of them
    Its cheaper to make 20 than it is to make like 4
