    Legally, we are wide open here.

    As a practical matter, 3 are about all I can keep up with if they are biting.

    WOW 17 at one time all by yourself? The law in Ohio is only 2 rod and reels at one time.

    No limits here in Kentucky. I have 6 heavy duty bank rod holders and can put a big rod in each one. But I usually fish with 3.:eek:oooh:

    In Mo you are allowed 33 hooks in the water, that includes jugs, trotlines, and rod and reel. There is a 3 rod limit, however there is an exception. If you have all your rods labeled with your name and address you can have as many as you want, up to 33 if you don't have any trotlines or jugs.

    Technically, you only allowed to have 2 rods out here in PA.

    But sometimes when your off in some secluded spot far far away form civilization, I "might" think about an extra:wink::cool2::wink:.

    Here in Georgia it is unlimited, but I stick to 6. Usually 5 in the water and 1 needs some type of attention...............bait, repair rig, new line........... whatever needs doing.

    I believe that SC limits bank fishermen to 2 per person, while the boat anglers are allowed as many as they want. For flatheads, I generally run three if by myself. If a buddy comes then we fish 2 each.
