Hello all. I've stumble across something in the Wildlife Code that might help some folks from getting a fishing violation. In the past I routinely used several rods out on the Mississippi River. If you read the code you will find that you are only allowed 3 (Unlabled Rods) for Catfishing. It also states that if fishing the Mississippi, or its tributaries you are only allowed 2 (unlabled rods). Lucky I didnt get a ticket. Now, its my understanding that if you label each of your rods with your name, address, and phone number that you are only limited by the maximum number of hooks allowed for trot lines and such. So, in theory you could have 33 rods and reals if they are labled. Can anyone elaborate on this for me. Thanks for your help. Good Luck Fishin !!!
