How Many Hooks Does Your State Allow?
I live in Oklahoma, which is fairly generous in its fishing regs compared to some of the surrounding states.
Here is what is legal from the way I read the regs:
Hooks - Type
14 - 7 Rod and reel outifts per person with up to 2 hooks each
100 - Trotlines/throwlines, no more than 3 lines with 100 hooks total per person
100 - Juglines; 5 hooks per line and up to 20 jugs per person
40 - Limbline; 2 hooks and 20 lines per person
20 - Yo Yo's
Grand Total - 274 hooks per person.
What does your state allow?
Missouri, except for the Missouri River is 33 hooks, all told.
25 hooks on a trotline in Kansas

2 poles.....3 hooks each.......Ohio
Not so sure.
Tulcat, I wasn't lyin to ya, but I am not sure I was right.
In Missouri, it's 3 unlabeled poles. I guess all ya want up to 33 poles if 30 of them are labeled. Trotlines are 33 hooks no matter how long or how many owners. 33 hooks per permit holder. But either the Missouri os Mississippi gets 50 hooks on a line I believe.

2 poles - 2 hooks each.
You can have one "trotline" with 15 hooks or 5 "trotlines" with three hooks each.
Thats Iowa's regs.
If I remember right, In Texas it's 25 on trotline and I think 5 on jugs. I dont do either anymore so I'm not real worried about that.
I only use 2 maybe 3 poles at the most with one hook on each so no worry for me on that part. LOL. Sometimes I will use 2 hooks on each pole when crappie fishing. I think its 2 hooks on each pole up to 25 total, poles hooks combine
I haven't got to fish in a long time so Maybe I need to re read the rule book to be sure things hasn't changed in my area before going again. I got Bad memory . LOL.
This was a good reminder thread for me to read the book again. Thanks
