View Full Version : Fishing with jugs in Ga?

Can anyone tell me if it is legal to fish with jugs in Ga? I think it is but am not 100% sure. If so can you use them in State park lakes? Thanks guys.

Yes, 50 per person unless the regs have changed. Someone else may know for sure, but I think it is illegal on state park lakes, unless the park is on a major reservoir like Hartwell or Clark Hill.

The rule is a maximum of 50 hooks in any combination of jugs, set lines, trot lines, or rods and reels....Also, your jugs must be marked with your name and address....

I just checked the fishing regs, only trotlines have to be marked, and jugging is illegal on state park lakes.

Thanks guys. I thought it might be illegal on State Park lakes but the fishing is so crappy on these lakes, I thought I might try something different if it was legal.
