Jug line lessons 2

Placement is also important. There is a zone between where the bass fisherman fish and the water skiers and jet skis run. This is the perfect zone for the Jugs as they will not get in the way of others around you and also seems to be where the fish are located.

This year I will not get to test my theory that late fall and winter are also good times to jug due to the water level of the Eagle Mountain Lake but someday with the blessing of rain I will try it.

Remember to only take what you will eat no need to go overboard. This year after getting our freezers set up with enough for the year we started to play fish for fun. And trying to learn how to bass fish. Supplies are getting down to where another Jug trip is being planned. We are looking at other lakes open near Fort Worth. Any suggestions for local lakes with a health population of Blue Cat would be appreciated.

That's a perceptive understanding of where to find the fish, and yet stay away from other lake users. That must have taken some time to figure out.

When I used to fish from the bank I would get upset at the thoughtless individuals who would boat up to my little spot and block my access and the speed boats zipping as close as they could pretending they didn't notice. There is plenty of room for all if we all could be a bit more considerate on the water. The zone turned out to be where the fish were so it works out good for me. Sometimes it's tempting to play catch and release with jet skiers though.
