I like your idea, but why not just tie a treble hook on the end of the line of a regular fishing pole, and just reel it up to the tip of a firshing rod (with a reel) Use it to snag the jug line, and if the jug has a big fish, you have a rod to bend and a reel to fight it with...

Yeah, good idea. Never would have thought about that.

Just get an old garden hoe and break or cut the blade off, leaving the "hook" on the handle.

I like it. We've just been using the paddle handle.

I took a broom handle and drilled a hole in the end of it and screwed one of those hooks used for hanging a bicycle in the garage. Works great.

Same here, except I walked over to the lumber dept and bought a 5 foot dowel rod (1 1/2" diameter).

This is my "hoe" handle. It comes in handy at times for beating snakes back, pulling boat off a stump, and pulling grape vines down to pick the grapes.
