It would appear to be according to the WVDNR Fishing Regulations. On the other hand, trotlines and limblines are allowed in certain waters. I was hoping to toss out a few noodle jugs around my boat while fishing an isolated arm of a lake. The jugs would be attended at all times, and I would retrieve them all before I go. But it appears that jug-fishing of any kind is forbidden? Does anyone know if there are any instances where jug fishing would be allowed at all?
