Well I'm experimenting with a new jug, but I'm targeting blues big enough to sink a noodle jug like it was a banana or something. I'm adding a base to act as a parachute making for a lot more drag when the fish pull it.

Jugs
If they are going to be anchored, you want about twice the length of line as the depth.

For free floating jugs, I used to use 3 inch thin walled pvc with spray foam as a float but it is a lot of work and don't think I would do it that way if I need to build . I would recommend 3/4 inch pvc which should fit into a swim noodle. Cut them about 10 inches long or so which should give you 5 jugs per noodle. Slide the pvc into the noodle and wrap them with white duck tape as tight as possible to give the noodle strength, make it white which is a legal requirement, right name and number and address and date on them. Drill a hole through the width of the noodle/pvc about three inches from one end. Thread a 100 pound black tarred string (you get it from walmart or academy but has to be the black tarred string not white nylon or non tarred). Tape the string to a small rod and thread it through the hole you drilled through the pvc/noodle. The pvc gives it strength which is why i add it plus cheap. Once string is threaded through the noodle/pvc, tie it directly to a trotline clip. Pull tight and start wrapping it and put a good 50 feet on it or way more than you need. If the string every comes off you will not use your jug because it is tied directly to a trotline clip and cannot come off. You can tie one or two hooks to the end of the jug and I do not recommend using any swivles or any three way rigs. Just put the top hook and loop the string with a 4-6 inch loop. Every once in a while a fish will twist but it rarely effects it and you can retie it in a minute. Swivles always made a bigger mess than it saved me on free floating jugs. Add a 1 ounce round weight above bottom hook. This system allows you to adjust your depth on the fly by letting out X amount of feet and then using the trotline clip to clip back to the string and set the depth. I eventually want to make a youtube video over this but haven't found time. This system works awesome and catches fish! I have made the flagging juglines and I honestly can not recommend them. The delayed reaction seems to cost me fish versus the fish grabbing a jug and pulling the whole float down. Just my two cents but hope it helps. You can fit about 10 of these jugs in a milk crate sized container. I'll try to make a video in the next few days to help give you a visual.
