Those of you who use jug lines, how are you positioning the hook? Are you running the main line down through a egg sinker and then to a swivel, with a leader and a hook? This is what I have commonly seen and have been doing the last few times out.
Reason I am asking, is the noodles I put together have the sliding weight internally to "flag" when a fish is on them. Caught 7 fish yesterday and not a single one of them "flagged"
I was thinking about running the main line down to the weight and using a dropper leader for the hook positioning it between the noodle and the weight. So that way any movement will cause the jugs to "flag" and keep the bait just up off of bottom instead of dragging behind the weight on bottom.
Or am I over thinking this?
Got about 12' of main line right now and about a 18" leader and am fishing in the 10-12' depth yesterday Too deep? Too Shallow for this time of year?
