What size weights do you guys use for your Juglines. I will targeting Big Cats at Choke in the 20-40 lb range. Will be running 3-5 hook sets on lines in about 15-50 ft of water.
All advise is appreciated ! smile

Pieces of heavy chain work well. I usually use 2-3 pounds worth of 1/2 chain, about 6 links. They hardly ever get hung up.

Anything filled with concrete, bottles, cans ect. Bricks work well also

Just a tip If you are targeting large cats in open water you might want to use 2 jugs taped together. I have lost several 1 jug set-ups so i started using two 1 gallon antifreeze jugs on one line. I thought the first couple times someone was running my jugs and stealing them but after drift fishing near them and watching them go under to never be seen again I started putting 2 jugs on.

Also i would go with 3 hooks not 5. It becomes dangerous if you get a big cat on one of the bottom hooks. If you get him near the boat and he makes a run you might get a hook in you.

Whatever a house brick weighs is how much weight I use.

Thanks Guys- 2lbs-5lbs seems light- would think that a big cat could drag this off ?

It happens but you sure would get tired of lifting anything heavier into the boat time after time......

I use window weights and 1" round stock. Cut them to 12 inches and weld a chain on them. A brick will get hung in a tree.

Stop throwing them up in the trees and they won't get stuck. Just Kidding

The lake I fish was impounded in 1928 ie: No trees.
