Juggs!!!

So I'm trying to get my girl friend hooked on fishing, I think it can be done cause everything else I've made fun like hiking, horses, and hunting she becomes addicted. Needless to say she's not very cordinated with casting a fishing rod and last time we went she just got frustrated. So I'm setting up some jugs ( legal in ga) to go set out on some farm ponds and maybe lake Juilette in a back corner somewhere for a few hours or so. So I was just wondering if anyone out there has been hugging before and what kind of set ups have you used. I done it a few times before but it always becomes a hassle to keep the lines organized when pulling them in. I also like the asthetics of good looking rigs. So I've been collecting 32oz gatorade bottles. I took a stainless steel hose clamp and slid a snap ring through one of the screw slots and put it down past the top on the bottle and tightened it around the thick plastic collar. I then tied on a 80# test nylon drop line to a swivel with snap. This way I can attach a variety of weights directly to the snap and run a clear mono leader of about 3 to 4 feet off. Anyone got any ideas on how to improve this or any cool comments?? I'm also gonna label all the jugs 1-# and tape reflective tape on the butt of the bottle cause I don't want to loose any, and cause more trash in our beautiful waterways!! The cool thing ab the idea I think is you can easily roll the drop line up and drop it in the bottle and screw the cap back on making for a streamline jug. I also do most of my fishing out of a canoe so there's not a lot of moving around keeping stuff organized. I think the ol gal would have fun watching jugs move across the lake with a cat on the line!!

Never tried juggin'. One of my sons does it a lot. I'll ask about his set up. Sounds like fun. Hope she likes it!

I've been once before on a small farm pond at night and it was a blast. Id love to hear how a more experienced jugger sets his stuff up. Like how long he makes his drop lines and what all types of terminal tackle he uses.

Im from MO and I have done juggin on the missouri river. The setup that I use and is simple is take one of those foam pool noodels (the hollow ones) and cut it into 4" sections. Then take a dowl rod the size of the inside hole and attach your line to the center of the rod. Then slide a noodel section on each end. (looks like a mini dumb bell) It works great because when you care taking them in you can rap the line around the rod and hook the hook into the foam sections on the end. Its easy and makes storying jugs easy. If you want you can attach a clasp to the center of the rod so you can set the depth of your line.

Nice idea! That sounds pretty cost effective too! Sounds like a good way to keep the lines organized too with out having them all over the place.
