SHTF fishing supplies for catfish and trotlinesA few weeks ago I posted an article about fishing with juglines after SHTF.  One of the problems is organizing the noodles and trot lines so they are easy to deploy.  In an effort to keep everything together, I bought a 5 gallon bucket.  The bucket provided a way to keep the noodles and trot lines together, but it lacked compartments for holding hooks, weights, swivels and leader material,,,, and other odds and ends.  This problem was fixed on Fathers Day.

On Fathers day my Grand kids picked me out a lid for my 5 gallon bucket.  The lid is made by Plano, its 2 sided, has 6 compartments in the top tray, and the tray is removable for access to a storage compartment.  The compartments are large enough for hooks, weights, swivels,,,, anything that you might need for setting up a jugline or trot line.

Along with the trotline and jugline material for catfishing, I am going to include some supplies for perch fishing, and maybe some stuff for bass fishing.

So, your probably wondering how trotlines or juglines applies to a long term SHTF situation.

Lets say that you live close to a river, stream, lake, pond,,,, anywhere else that catfish like to hang out. Go out to the body of water, and just before dark throw out the juglines. The next morning, just as the sun is coming up, get a boat and head out on the water to collect the noodles.

In the case of a river, throw the juglines in the river just before dark, then launch something like a canoe, go down the river, collect the lines, then return home.

The goal is to let the juglines do the fishing, while your working on something else.

In a long term SHTF survival situation, its important to utilize all of your available resources.  Whether its gathering roots, harvesting fish, hunting, pulling weeds from the garden,,,,,,,,, your going to need to save time and resources when possible.

Post your comments in this forum thread about trotlines and juglines after STHF.
