Lots of people only take a pop bottle and paint them orange. Then tie a srting about 2' with a hook. Then bait and throw them in the water. LOL

they way we did it
I went with a buddy of mine a few times and we used all different types of bottle's. Just tie braided fishing line around the neck with about 18" hanging down, put a 3 way swivel on one end put a short leader with a 3/0 circle hook with a crawfish on it and on the other end of the swivel put about 6" of line with a small weight.

Make sure your string has a weight on the end so your jug does not float away tie your hook a foot or two up from the weight. Brought my two little ones last weekend to do this...they had a blast.

spanky ,
You wait till in the morning you might not find half your jugs.
We run jugs all night picking them up when they get bit.
Not like a trot line, if a good fish hits jug its way down the bayou b4 daylight.
How about the rest , Do yall leave jugs out all night ???

I like to put a few small rocks in my jugs. That way when the fish hits and rattles the jug you can hear the strike and go look for it.

we actally use the noodles that you buy for swimming pools. cut them in small pieces and go. we put out about 50 last night and left them all night. we only caught 9 but there was a lot that had fish on them that had already gotten off.

yea we use the noodles too,that's the way to go b/c you can wrap the string around and stick the hooks in the noodle after!

if you jug with noodles, run line through middle of noodle, and
it will "stand up" when fish is one, making it easier to find

You can fish as many as you want but can't have over 100 catfish, with only 20 (i think) under the legal size limit. Jug lines would be classified under "set lines" in the LDWF's eyes.

A recreational fisherman may possess a maximum of 25 undersize catfish of a single or combination of all three species within the 100 fish possession limit. The maximum possession limit for catfish caught in Toledo Bend Reservoir on a recreational license shall be 125 fish which may be any combination of species of catfish.

BTW I like to use at least 2 liter bottles (and a good fish will still sink that) but run them every couple hours at least.
