Bob, depending on the size of the pond, explosives might be more economical than bleach. All that rain on July 4 has probably left everybody with lots of extra fireworks - here's a win-win solution!

Plus, this way, people aren't setting those fireworks off at 11:00 p.m. in my neighborhood and waking me up. \:\)

Edit: explosives have the added benefit of being effective against jet skis, whereas bleach just makes the jet skis look clean.

Made me think. I baited limb lines and jugs with small bluegill many times back in high school. I caught cats, turtles, water dogs (mud puppies), and even a few gar. Even though bass love to munch on helpless bluegills, I never caught a bass that way. Wonder why?

I have fished trotlines and limb lines and some jugs most of my life. Never caught a bass on one. But then I usually used Octagon soap for bait.

Did you ever catch a jet ski? If you made a trotline with low-vis monofilament and set it about 4 feet above the surface, it just might work.

I caught a 6 1/2 lb LM in the mouth of the Blue springs holler at Watts Bar one night on a cut up bluegill on a jug!! Thats the only bass I ever recall catching on a jug myself!

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.

Sure does. I've seen guys use yo-yo's for crappie all my life - are crappie NOT a gamefish????

Ive never caught a bass on a jug either - even when using live bait.

That's what I'd do as well. I've never heard of going after bass using jugs, but heck why not. Sounds like fun. Good luck!
