I was thinking! What if the main tether lines from jugs to anchor could be slid through the eye of the anchor and the jug handle, forming a loop. The main fishing line would be attached solid to the tether line loop so it could be raised to bait and check or lower to fishing depth by un-doing a clamp or knot on the tether line loop by the jug. Then pulling up on one lead or the other as you would a pully.

I never fished my trotlines that deep..and almost always fished them parallel to the bank. But it looks good on paper.

1) you don't want your lines below the oxygen line, cause then all you'll catch are a FEW blues. (this line is usually around 10 feet in the summer)

2) as a rule of thumb, fish will feed up, but not down.

Just food for thought.

Snowman,

After close examination of your set up I think I have discovered your problem...

Hey guys; I think you just helped me a bunch! Some here have said to set them up close to where the channel meets the flats. Well I think my deep anchor is down 35'. Thats why I am having so much trouble holding the anchor up to check and bait. I'm going to pick up today and reset in shallower water, unless by some fluke I have a good catch.

Whitetailer, whats's that alittle ice creature?:D
