My personal preference is to never allow more that a foot of slack in the jug line. I have experimented in the past with allowing more slack and it only allow the fish to get tangled up on something. Just adjust the jug to one foot above the water no matter how deep your fishing. Hope this helps. John3:16

Retired .. There are a couple of answers . It depends on your jug type . Less slack is best because some of those cats will roll themselves up in that extra slack . With a plastic jug, you can take up most of the slack . Now on a "flagging jug" type design jug with the rebarb , you have to account for the waves so they don't premature flag it so you may want 2-3 feet of slack .

I think that I have been doing mine around a foot or two . I really don't care if mine stand up vertical . I can see them easier and I can tell if they have a fish on them because they sit lower in the water and sometimes even bounce up and down .
