Can you please tell me how to make a catfishing jug and how to use it?

A catfishing jug is very simple to make. Get yourself a jug that offers a handle, such as an old milk jug. That is where you will tie your leader. The jug needs to have a cap too so that you can seal it up. Add some weight to the jug with rocks and sand. You want enough so that it won’t float all over the place in the wind. Don’t weigh it down too much though or it will sink.
Try to estimate the depth of the pond where you will place your jug. Then make your leader that approximate length. The first end of your fishing line needs to be securely to the jug. On the other end place a swivel and a sinker. Then you will build a second leader that is 12 to 18 inches long. Place the hook on one end and the snap swivel on the other. Attach it to the sinker, bait the hook, and throw it all into the water!
