Default catfish juggin

I was wondering what some of you cat anglers use for juggin. I want to have some jugs ready for Bull Shoals Arkansas in May, but i want to use something else as a float besides a bleach bottle. I want to find something different that will make it obvious when a fish is on.

Night juggin and beer chuggin!

why not just use a tipup like is used for ice fishing? Just fix it to float if it doesn't already float. I've never heard of anyone doing this though, maybe it doesn't work? Lol.

Bleach bottles and milk jugs are a lot cheaper! I've never jug fished, but set lots of limb lines and trotlines in SE Kansas as a kid.* What a lot of fun!* Definitely low-tech!

From the link that walking eagle posted it looks like the flagging jugs are just a pool noodle with some pvc pipe inside. Great idea and would be easy to make.

Antifreeze jugs I think work the best, because like that link WE posted they tip upright when there is a fish on.
Like all jug fishing please make sure you have cleaned the bottles out properly, check the jugs regularly, and label them the regulations require.

Yeah the site Walking eagle recomended is the site that inspired my first post. Im only going to be using these jugs for a week so i probably wont invest the $89.99 deal, but those look like some "NICE JUGS " they are probably worth it. I think that a pool noodle and a capped stick of PVC would do the trick also. nice to see some replies though considering that nobody juggs in colorado or do they....

If you are going at night throw a small/medium sized cyalume light (or chemlite, light stick, whatever you want to call it) inside your bottle before you cap it...you will be able to spot it very easily after the sun goes down---they will glow like chinese lanterns. only do this on remote water though, if there are people around they will be chasing your jugs all over the place out of curiousity...

Take two liter coke (soft drink) bottles and put about an ounce of weight (pouring in some rubber cement works well) in the fat end. Fix your line to the bottleneck and you're ready to go. They aren't as long as what's $90 but they do lay flat and then stand on end when you have a bite. If you want more height on the fat end, cut the end off of another two liter and attach teh two bottles end to end. You can then put cyalume sticks in the secodn bottle or paint it a bright color. you can make pobably 50 of the for the price of one of the others. Or just get some pool noodle and lengths of dowel from Home Depot. Poke a hole through the center of the noodle, thread teh dowel through and glue in place. Add an eyelet if you want. Good luck juggin', that's a great way to drink..uh I mean fish.

I have tried 2 liter coke bottles before but found that large cats can pull them under for a long time and is hard to follow them around sometimes. I think that thing WE posted may have the same problem.
There are not very many lakes in Colorado that allow juglines so make sure you check before you use them here.
