    I use approx 30" of 3/4" PVC pipe slid thru an approx 5" diameter noodle, then glue on the caps after placing a 12" piece of3/8" rebar inside. I screw in an eye screw into 1 of the caps to clip a locking snap swivel which is attached to my dropper line. The purpose of the rebar is, when properly balanced on the noodle, to be a strike indicator when the jug has a hit thereby standing up. It saves you time checking all the jugs, you just see which one is standing and go get your fish. I also make up different length of dropper lines with swivels so i can custom set the jugs at the appropriate depth of the fish. I measure the length of the assembled line,roll it up and tape it with blue painters tape and mark the length of line and toss in a gallon zip lock bag. I hope this is not too complicated to understand. It is very efficient.

    That is a lot like I build mine. I like the weighted tip up stay up design

    I built 12 noodle floats with a tell-tale. I used 12" pieces of Pool Noodles and 24" pieces of PVC pipe Leaving 12" of the pipe exposed. Into each pipe I put a 10" piece of rebar. Then I drilled one of the endcaps to insert an eye bolt to attach my line. When deploying the noodle, I made sure the rebar was inside the noodle and would put the noodle flat on the water. It would float flat on the surface of the water. When Mr Whiskers took the bait (mostly chicken gizzards) he would pull the long end of the PVC down, which caused the rebar to slide to the end of the PVC and the noodle would stand up on the surface of the water. Sitting waiting where I could see my noodles I would then motor over to the upright noodle and retrieve it and its fish. I used them a few times and they really worked the way I thought. Unfortunately they were in my boat when I sold it and I let the fellow have them.

    They sure make it easier to know when you need to collect a fish or rebait a hook

    Clint - Mine are similar to yours except for the lengths. It is a no brainer to know when you have a fish on. There is more work to build these but the efficiency is well worth it.
