In your opinion what depths would you be placing a jugline in this time of year, the juglines would be only for during the day, no over night. Thanks.

Need to fish above the thermocline. I think juglines are fishing, sallysue wouldn't know what fishing was if it swum up and bit him on the rump.

All of my jugs are set at 5 to 6 foot. Fish for suspended fish in deeper water this time of year.

Put them on the ledge of a flat or along a river channel.

In deeper water say 20' or so I would put a weighted jug with a hook right off bottom then one about three foot above that then one about three foot from the top. When you run them you'll know where the air is by the look of the fish caught on that hook. You can adjust your depth according.

Keep them all at 14 feet or under...hooks any deeper will be below thermocline and kill them causing waste.

Is the thermocline the same in all lakes?

Thermocline is usually around 20 foot. In deeper lakes it will go on down to 25-30.

Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

Sorry, I tried posting yesterday or Saturday, but it froze & I had to shut down the browser page & lost all I wrote.

Thermocline runs about half depth to bottom. In 20' that would be from 10' down to bottom. 40' would be 20' down to bottom.

However, it may not apply to shallower water, such as 11 to 13' deep, as I've fished in the No Wake Zone coming out of Running Branch Marina & never encountered any problems in the summer. But I have noticed it in 15' to 16' deep waters.

If you are in an area of heavy traffic- skiers & jet skiers, they can stir up oxygen into the water. However, on the other hand, outboard motors have underwater exhausts, churning carbon monoxide into the water as well. Add a great volume of traffic during the summer.

One article years ago (7 to 15) shared of a guy rod-n-reeling for Big Blues in the summer in lakes during thermocline. He would use goldfish. He said since the thermocline was at half depth, he would set his hook just above or barely into it. He noted the Big Blues suspend themselves just above the thermocline level. And if the hook & bait was slightly lower, a big blue would make a dash to retrieve the bait then get back out of the danger zone
