    ive been comming across alot of cut hooks on my trout lines. peoples bad about running peoples lines at mark twain.i even hide them the best i can. but sometimes i have to put jugs on the ends. what ever happened to respect amongst fishermen. whats the best way to deal with it....without breaking the law.....

    Are your lines tagged with your name and 100% legal to every letter of the law?

    I think people are more apt to mess with a line that is not 100% legal than one that is.

    i know what i want to do but i dont think i want to go to jail over a trout line. its hard to say what would happen if i caught them red handed

    I think that this is something that you just have to expect to a certain extent when you trotline,limb line etc. It would be great if everyone would leave everyone else's stuff alone but unfortanately they don't. I would love to not have to lock my truck or make sure that I have nothing in the back that people can steal.

    Short of putting out your line and staying with in site of it I don't know much you can do to keep people from messing with it.

    Ya mark em with a jug on a lake like that ya gona get runn. Tie ya lines 1 ft under water and use a window weight to pull em down deep right beside the tree you tie off on. Then use a grapple hook to pull em up to check em or a big 10/0 snaggen treble and a 5 ounce weight on a snaggen rod to pull em up. It should cut the theiven back from the line robben scum. Also be out there @ the crack of dawn and if you catch some one messen with ya line just smile dont say a word and take pics of them and their boat numbers and have a conservation agent meet ya @ the bank. Nuthen ses dont mess with my lines like a court summons and a $100 fine.:wink:

    What is the difference between a trotline, and a troutline??? I have always heard them called trotlines?

    Is a troutline for catching trout?
