Catfish jugs and jug lines are an extremely popular and highly effective method of catching catfish. Jug lines consist of baited lines attached to a main floatation device, and they are designed to drift and attract catfish in various conditions. Jug lines can be fished shallow or deep, in river channels or flats, and in almost any wind condition. If there are catfish in an area, you can most certainly catch them using this method. 

Benefits of Using Jug Lines

  • Efficiency: Cover large areas with minimal effort. You cannot do this with a rod and reel setup. 
  • Cost-Effective: Reusable and durable, saving you money in the long run. 
  • High Success Rate: Jug fishing is a proven method for catching large numbers of catfish without the hassle of setting up a trotline or using many rod and reel setups. 
  • GREAT for Family Fishing: Jug line fishing is some of the most relaxing and enjoyable fishing that can be done as a family. Kids love picking up the catfish jugs to discover what's on the other end, and jug fishing is a great way to get kids interested in fishing. For example, check out the older video below. We decided to go out on a whim, and the kids had a blast jug fishing!

Best Practices for Catfish Jug Fishing

Always follow these best practices to ensure that you keep your fishing trip fun and legal. 

  • Check Local Regulations: Always be aware of and comply with local fishing laws. Some lakes may not allow jug fishing, so it's always good to be sure and check. 
  • Maintain Equipment: Regularly inspect your jugs and lines for wear and tear. You don't want a personal best blue catfish to pop off your noodle when you grab it! 
  • Use Fresh Bait: Fresh bait increases your chances of attracting catfish. If you need bait, we've got you covered. Don't catch bait by hand, you're going to want a bait fish trap
  • Spacing: Don't fish your jugs right on top of each other. Space them out so that they do not become tangled when a fish gets on.

Frequently Asked Questions About Catfish Jugs and Jug Lines

Q: How many catfish jugs should I use? A: It depends on the size of the water body, but generally, 6-20 jugs are a good starting point.

Q: What type of bait works best? A: Stay with what's natural in the lake if possible. Minnows, shad, and bluegill are all great bait for blues, flathead, and channel cats. If you need bait, catch your own by using perch traps.

Q: How long should the jug lines be? A: The length of the line should be adjusted based on the depth of the water, typically ranging from 3 to 15 feet.
