    I don't see why you couldn't use as many as you want, the lake is 2952 surface acres.

    Any Public lake with less that 700 surface acres you can only use 6 jugs. If the surface acres are more than 700 than you can use as many as you want......

    Dont forget to put your Name , Address , and Telephone number on your jugs........

    Last year's regulations had juglines explained with limblines and trotlines which seemed to limit to 50 jugs on lakes over 600 acres. This years regulations does not show a limit on lakes over 600 acres. I just assume that you can have 50 per person as long as each 50 is labled with "your" name and address. You may want to call 1-800-wildlife to be sure.

    Welcome to the BOC. Remember I believe there are now limits on the number and size of Flatheads you can keep. I don't know what the specifics are because I release everything, but just giving you a heads up.
