Do you love big bluegill?
I've got a Perception Search 13. SOT, 13',sonar, anchor trolley, drift sock, milk crate with extra rod holders zip-tied to that. I typically troll open water, or fish the weedlines. Lures, flies, bait, etc. I've even rug jugs out of it.
Yes, I will run jugs every now and then. I only have 6, made from magnum pool noodle with a core of 3/4" schedule 40 pvc pipe. I can carry 9 jugs in my crate, but prefer to keep it at 6. This leaves enough room for a Plano box, so I can fish with rod-and-reel while watching the jugs, troll to-and-from, etc.
I've never gotten into any decent sized cats. Most of the small lakes take my kayak to don't allow jugs, and the few that do don't have any Blue Cats.
Sometimes, though, you just never know what's going to happen. Last year, I was bass fishing, throwing a Jitterbug to the weedlines. I got a huge hit, and my pole doubled over. A 5 lbs Channel had grabbed my lure.
A couple years ago, a buddy of mine was fishing for Stripers with crankbaits. A 30 lbs Blue grabbed his lure and pulled him around for an hour before he landed it in his kayak.
I kinda like the name Kudzu County , Mississippi LOFR
here in Arkansas we have names like " Possum Trot, Possum Grape , Weiner, Goobertown, and Oil Trough , named for a place where they rendered bear fat. LOFR
