    took 28 jugs on truman from 10 last nite till about 1:30 this morning using large shad in 20 ft on the flat and caught over 20 blues most around 12 ft of down stageing apx 70 lbs of fish, but again largest was around 8 lbs and just kept enough for a mess.

    Sounds like a nice night! You've got more energy than me - I'm way too lazy to catch that much bait and chase that many jugs:big_smile:

    Sounds like you had a good time - thanks for the report. I tried jugging at night a couple of times on Truman, it was a dismal failure both times...

    Thanks for the report and welcome to the BOC Shannon.
    Judith the kids and I really have a blast when we run the floater jugs. I just drive and they do the running and baiting, It's a lot of fun when you have several going down at the same time and it keeps them busy. We havent jugged in quite a while and may have to give it a try soon.

    Jugging is a lot of work if your alone-most people think its a lazy mans way of fishing...it ain't!!

    I very rarely trotline alone,too many bad things can happen/but jugging has been safe so far,just a lot of work alone.

    I've put jugs on a lake and had 'lazy' results, but I do most of my jugging in the river, and that keeps me busy as a man getting eat up by skeeters in a poison ivy patch.
