Whatever you want to call them... juglines... noodles... plastic jugs or pool float sections with a line underneath and the whole thing floats... couple questions.

How many is reasonable to put out? You have to watch them or they can get away.

How deep do you fish on a river? On a lake? I fish Red River and also will fish a lake.

Anyone have any revelations about how they have modified their jug rig to work best? I wonder if a Gatorade bottle is large enough to work. I use them for limb lines because they have a groove in the middle and it makes for a nice place to wrap the line when transporting them.

And do you place your weight or the hook at the very bottom?

What bait do you favor?

There are 1000 ways to skin a cat...there 1000 ways to fish a jug...I'm a rod and reel fisherman but I have run jugs with my dad many times on lake Lewisville..we use a modified pool noodle with a 3- way rig...vary depth from 4-20 ft until we found what worked...would throw out 10-15 jugs in a line, when one of your jugs get yanked out of the line go get your fish...when they are really biting, you can't run many lines. We used chopped bluegill to stay on the hook good. It's a lot more fun to catch blues on a rod. Good luck

The modified noodle is weighted with a piece of rebar inside the pvc end cap..not enough to make it Bob but just enough to get the noodle to start to tilt...the line rig is weighted lightly on bottom of 2 ft leader to 3-way swivel to 6" leader to #8 circle ...your weight should be heavy enough to hold bait down.

I free float mine to drift with the breeze toward the bank. One 8/0 hook per noodle from 4 to 8ft deep with 1 oz weight. When they are biting it's hard to even keep up with a dozen but I usually have 24 in the boat. I use perch and chicken breast. If you put them in the Red they gonna end up in Texarkana if some Okie don't find em first:)

We use those 32 oz powerade bottles. Use a 8 ft line and a 2 oz egg sinker about 18" from the hook. Hook is a 5/0 circle hook. Just set them out in a line and let them drift. Lot of times when they are drifting we go bow fish or crappie fish. Come back in a hour or so and check them. If you set them on a river, set them out and go down river and wait for them to drift to you. Pick up the ones that make it to you and go find the others.

Drifting them towards you in a river sounds like a good idea !

Unfortunately, there are people that will be glad to run your lines if you leave them. We were run off the lake by lightning one evening. Went back to get them the next morning, someone had already help themselves.
Watch and chase, have fun.

I printed out my name tags and laminated them and zip tied them to my jugs and noodles.
