The top hooks on my jugs lines are catching in 8-10 FOW, top hook is 2-4', but I can't seem to get much luck on rod n' reel. I have tried suspending under bobbers at the same depth, but stil no luck. Mean while the jug 30' from me gets nailed. Please givens me some pointers. I'm new to chasing cats on rod n' reel, and any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

Are the jugs moving around with the wind. If so they are leaving a scent trail and covering more water.

They're not moving around, but I'm thinking of maybe drifting some santee rigs around the area just to see what happens.

I catch them drifting beneath bobbers in 30+ ft. I've tried being anchored or tied up and haven't had much success unless it's shallow water. It also seems like the less wind the better for me.
