It does not seem that long ago

that he was learning how to jug fish with me.

And now he has his own boat

and practicing what he learned from his papaw.

Good job Garrett!

circle hooks

I prefer circle hooks for catfish.

The Mustad 10/0 is a good heavy hook.

Well it was not strong enough

as a big fish straighten it

and kept going.

Big Blues have moved in to shallow water

++++++++++

My ‘flagging jugs’ have been catching a couple of fish per day until last nite (1/4/12).

The 11 jugs with one circle hook each were baited with cut bullhead catfish.

One hook was baited using a small live bullhead.

The jugs were located in about 14 foot of water.

The blues weighed 11#, 11#, 18# and 21#.

One jug had disappeared from my fishing area and was found some

100 yards tangled in heavy brush.  The fish had got off the hook.
