Default Awesome weekend of juglining!

Started Friday morning. Had an old friend I haven't seen in years come down to try his hand at the jugs. Four hours later and we had 32 good fish in the boat, including a 34 pounder. Several 12-15, and the rest in the 3-4-5 pound range.

Louis with the BFOD (big fish of the day):



Friday's take:



Lunch Friday was fresh fish tacos:



Rinse and repeat for the next morning with an added 25 hook trotline. Another 34 pound blue and a few 5-8 pounders on the line. We picked up another 10 or so on the jugs for a total of 17.

Me with Saturday's BFOD:



Saturday's take:



Sunday morning my brother in law joined us for more shenanigans. His first run at the jugs as well. No huge fish today, but plenty of action. 27 total fish, biggest was about 14.

Scott with Sunday's take:



You know it was a good morning when the trash pile looks like this!



Preparing to launch!

Not one bit. Still the same as it was when I was 10 years old.

Simple. Section of pool noodle. Heavy duty tie wrap about an inch or so from one end. That holds a piece of trotline string about 12-14" long with a 3/4 or 1 ounce egg sinker on it. Three way swivel, with a 12-14" mono leader (50 pound test) to a 5/0 circle hook. If we want to anchor the lines, I use a trotline clip with the appropriate length of line and weight and clip it to the 3 way. We almost always use these free floating. Normal depth where we are fishing is between 3-6 feet, we are hanging the bait about 2' down.

I prefer to sit and drive the boat (and drink beer) and let the others do the work!

Cut carp and cut gizzard shad. Occasionally some live perch when we could get them.

Anyone have good luck with goldfish? our bait store sells them and figured it would be a quicker way than fishing for perch.

Are you baiting the area or just the jugs? How long are they soaking usually?

Great haul!

Not baiting. This area has some swift current coming into the lake. We pull up to the current, pitch the jugs out in the current and usually by the time they all settle out there are fish on. We generally donít sit still more than one beer. Constantly chasing them. If you leave them for too long they will get too scattered out and you loose them. When we started using these back in March I had made 32. We are down to 26 now.

Thanks! Maybe a direct correlation between beers consumed and jugs lost....what else is a beer but a redneck hourglass....

Goldfish are good bait, but they get expensive real quick.....
