For an upcoming trip to some fishy waters while waterfowl hunting we rigged up some catfish jugs which are very simple to make. I thought it would make a great post to share on the blog. They are a fun project to make and work really well.
- Take an old crab pot buoy or anything else that is buoyant. I use old washed up crabpot buoys because they last forever, can't sink and easy to spot.
- Paint them a Really bright color that contrasts with water and shoreline.
- Tie 20 to 40 ft of heavy monofilament fishing line to it and attach a threeway swivel to the end.
- Put a 5 ounce weight on about 24 inches of heavy mono on one of the 2 connections of the swivel. Put a big hook on the other empty loop on the swivel.
- Make sure to write your name and address on the jugs or attach a tag so that you are legal.
