I find myself limited in that I can't be gone overnight from home at this time, but can be gone sometime for several hours during daylight hours. My question to you is this: (1) Would be be best to place jugs on the lake in the late morning and check them throughout the day...then retrieve in late afternoon, or (2) would I catch more fish by placing the jugs out in late afternoon and then hoping that I will be able to check them the following morning? I really hate the thought that my jugs might not be checked within a short period of time! I've seen too many forgotten moss covered jugs!:sad2: What do you think??
