I am interested in setting some jugs for catfish. Could you please explain to me your setup for jug lines? I am interested in setting some on the red river while on vaction in august. I was wondering if you use a weight. Also how deep do you set your lines and what size jugs do you use?

Fishing with jugs.
Thats a nice mess of cats. Where do you run your jugs? We cant seen to find any low water. We are having to depend on lines to catch the cats.

These were caught in a shallow lake off of the Diversion Canal. Night-crawlers were the bait. As far as the setup, I use 20 ounce drink bottles. Mine have 2 "drops", one is about 18 inches long with the hook, the other is about 8 feet with a small weight to keep the wind and current from moving them around too much. 2 tips----make sure you put a swivel between the bottle and the hook, and I put a ring of Gorilla glue in the bottle cap before screwing it onto the bottle. Lemme know if you have any more questions.

thanks for the info tboy
Do you think this setup will work on the red river. I was wondering about how much weight I should put to keep them from moving to much. I was thinking maybe 3/4 to 1 ounce.

Depends on the depth and current where you want to try them. I would go with a lil more weight, prolly 2 ounces at least, and adjust the length of the drop to the depth where you plan to use them.
