Jug Fishing 101
The Ultimate Guide To Jug Fishing For Catfish

Jug Fishing 101

Jug fishing is a great way of “passive fishing” and a much more effective alternative to fishing with trotlines. It's also much easier to fish with juglines than using trotlines. Plus it's a great way to get children interested in fishing.

In addition, if you are a rod and reel angler and are struggling to catch fish, jug fishing is a great way to learn how to pattern and catch fish and then become a better rod and reel angler from what you learn while jug fishing.

After a lifetime of fishing with trotlines I gave up rod and reel fishing and started jug fishing for catfish. It was easier, more effective and was much more fun. The problem I had was at that time, there were not any good jugline designs and there was a real lack of credible information.

In the 90’s I developed a jugline design based on a two liter soda bottle that would alert you when you had a fish. It was the most advanced jugline design of its time and just about every fishing magazine in the United States picked up this designed and started talking about it.

But I Still Wasn't Happy With The Fishing Jugs

I had a great design but the coke bottle jugs filled my 14 foot jon boat up to the brim and there was not any room to move around. My son and I could barely get in the boat because the coke bottle fishing jugs took up so much room.

So I kept tinkering around with designs and came up with a better solution. Through a lot of trial and error I perfected the design of a closed cell polyethylene foam catfish jug that was easy to store, performed great at catching catfish, and would alert you when there was a fish on the jug.

I started a small company and began selling these catfish jugs under the name of “Redneck’s Juglines”.

Over the years I sold tens of thousands of jugs to anglers all across the United States and to parks and wildlife and DNR agencies all across the country. They've even been used by Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for their surveys, they work that well.

Learn From a Pro Catfish Guide

My name is Chad Ferguson and I own and operate North Texas Catfish Guide Service and Catfish Edge. I’ve got a lifetime of experience fishing for catfish and over fifteen years of experience as a pro catfish guide.

In 2010, my business as a professional catfish guide and running the Learn To Catch Catfish website simply did not allow me the time to continue to manufacture the catfish jugs.

After years of making and selling these fishing jugs commercially I decided to stop producing them commercially and not only release the plans and instructions on how to build these fishing jugs, but also an in depth tutorial to get you started jug fishing for catfish.

This way I could still make these awesome jug fishing rigs available to anglers but could focus more on my guide service and website.

What Is Jug Fishing 101?

Jug Fishing 101 has a total of 3 hours of video and audio training that covers everything you need to know to make your jug fishing rigs and how to get started fishing with them.

Now, there's a lot of free plans on the internet that tell you how to make catfish juglines but every single set of these I have ever seen have provided bad information.

They not only tell you to use the wrong materials but they also give you bad information on how to assemble them and how to rig them.

After over 10 years of manufacturing and selling catfish juglines, I have perfected what works and what doesn’t, so you get the benefit of my 10+ years of experience so you can build juglines that will work and hold up, saving you time and money.
