Default Who else likes to jug fish?

Z reminded me of one of my fav ways to fish. JUGS!

I have about 20 in the basement just waiting for fun and frolic.

We would drop them when heading out in morning then check them b4 lunch, then b4 evening.

Sucker meat on a size 2 baitholder caught some of the largest walleyes some trips. Always some nice catties and wipers also.

I used to see "jug fishing" all the time at Miramonte here in Western Colorado and wondered what it was all about. Come to find out it was just marking crawdad traps out in the lake. Guess jug fishing means different things to different people. By the way, even with the poisoning of Miramonte to rid the lake of smallmouth bass, the crawdad population wasn't hurt and it's still a great place for trapping them if you are into that kind of stuff.

Nah dont care to mess with them crawdads. Jugs we use are 1 gallon plastic bottles with 75 ft of 60lb braid and a 2lb weight . I hang a hook about 12" above the weight.

Try it on the ice for pike. When the jug hits the hole, hookset. Beats tipups or auto fishemens.

Made a dozen out of large water bottles. Painted them cone orange,added a little sand to each, so they stand straight up when a fish is on. Put them out at John Martin. Had a blast chasing them around the lake, with the wind blowing. Wouldn't say it was relaxing in the wind though. Channels, blues, all smaller sized. Cut bait.
