I've been seeing a lot of jug and noodles tied to trees. At MTL this week someone had about 30 of em scattered along the main channel. I didn't get close enough to look at how they did it but wouldn't a big fish straiten the hook on one of those unless you tie it with something to give the line some give?? Surely a noodle jug wouldnt be bouyant enough to keep a big ole flathead or blue from bending a hook?? I made a bunch of noodle rigs and plan to float em one evening then when I'm ready to go home I was gonna tether em to trees to be legal. I planned on using heavy tarp straps as part of the tether to keep big fish from getting away....bad idea?? How do you folks do it?
