I grabbed a few earlier in the spring before they went out of season. Im done with them now unless I come across a giant one or something crazy.

I grab them by their tail when im bowfishing or walk along shallow streams at first light and look for them.

Also, you can set lines. Nylon rope, steel leaders and heavy hooks, with stinky meat. Beef neck is good, the harder it is for them to get off the hook, the better.

jugs no need for all the money spent to get steel leaders and such. i milk jus mason line and standard #5 or 6 hook and go to IGA ask for there meat rimmings which is free. very affective and hardly any money involved. been doing this way for 18 20 years

i prefer jugs because they just bounce it around and even if they get there claws into the mud the still cnt pop ur line cuz it just pulls the jug down were as using bank lines they can break ur line or straighten hooks. i go to our local IGA and ask for there trimmings in the meat department its free and works good. also chicken gizzards work good. i use 175lb breaking strength cat fish line used for setting bank lines for cats

How many feet of line do you put on your jugs?

There are a few ways to do it...air compressor, gold ol' fashioned filet knife...etc.

Watch some youtube vids if you've never done it before, or have someone who knows what they are doing show you. I'd love to show ya, but you are abiout 2 hours from me!
