Jugging for bass. There is a pond with nothin but bass and some crappie in it. We have caught some good bass out of there but I was thinkin tryin that for fun and maybe get to catch some really big ones if it works.

I don't think it's legal to jug fish for bass, unless there's some exception on private water that I don't know about.

I think it is legal. If not, I can't find it in the regs.

Trotlines, Limblines And Jugs
Trotlines consist of a main line with drop lines
to which single hooks are attached. Drop lines
must not be closer than 24 inches. Nongame
fish, except paddlefish, may be taken without
limit; game fish, except catfish, may not be taken.
There is no limit on catfish, except only 1 fish
may exceed 34 inches.
Trotlines, limblines and jugs must be tagged
and/or marked with the owner’s name and
address. Trotlines attached to the bank must be
tagged on the line within five feet of the bank.
Other trotlines must be tagged within five feet of
either end, and floating trotlines must be marked
on floats. The holder of a sport fishing license
may use one or more trotlines not having a
combination of more than 100 hooks. Limblines
(including yo-yos) must be tagged above water
level and are allowed only one hook per line.
Sport anglers are limited to 25 limblines. Sport
anglers are limited to 50 jugs or blocks and each
with only one hook.
Trotlines, limblines and jugs must be run at least
once each day and are prohibited within 1,000
yards below any TVA or Corps of Engineers
dam.

Interesting, talks about trotlines but does not specifically address jugs

You don't get the fun of the fight jug fishing. But good luck.

It is not clearly written at all.

I always assumed the part about "Nongame fish, except paddlefish, may be taken without limit; game fish, except catfish, may not be taken" was intended to apply to everything in the title, trotlines, limblines, and jugs.

You're right - because of the trotline definitions at the very start, it seems to suggest that the part about game fish refers only to trotlines. I doubt that's what they meant though.

It needs to be re-written.

ABSOLUTELY no reason for that kind of remark.
