Been running trot lines all my life but for some reason I can't get this jig line thing down

Made up a dozen of the nice noodle jigs with he internal weight to bouy up when a fish is on ( like that has really happened yet.)

Tried out at Ivie this past week and only had one fish on but pulled free before I could chase him down

Anyone have any suggestions to help out a jug newbie?

I tried a couple of depths 10-15 and drifts with no success

Whole/cut shad were the bait Is what I was using

Have the main line rigged like a Carolina rig for reference

That's how I had these rigged up this time

But even with one hook each, 12 jugs, and multiple sets you would think something would have showed up

I've always had luck running multiple hooks. Covering more water!

Do you have a fish finder to scan the areas you're dropping them in to make sure there's fish around? I just got back from Ivie and there was a lot of dead water, at least on the main lake side for catfish. Didn't make it up the river arms.

Once you figure it out you will love it. Gallon jug. I like three hooks. I open eyes of hooks add swivel and pinch back. Slide down line tie a knot with a little bit of a leader and do another 3 feet above it. I use 1/2 a brick for weight.been doing it this way for 14 years. Caught a 77 pounder on this rig yesterday.
