    Why do you suppose there is a three fishing
    pole limit? If there's a limit on how many fish
    you can keep in general what difference dose it
    make how many poles you use???

    yep...

    Who knows the reasoning? I mostly fish with two anyway.. every now and then I'll toss in cutbait on a third.
    But if theres two people on a boat and one person don't have a Lic. and theres 4 lines in the water, someone is in trouble.

    Here theres a one pole limit ,UNLES you shell out 4.00 extra for a second pole. I agree if theres a limit on the # of fish you are allowed to keep,why should they limit the # of poles ya use,might let ya get home quicker and let someone else have your spot to get thier limit :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    I would think there trying to protect the bank fisher person . You if you use 5 poles thats about 70 ft of bank that one person takes up with 3 poles that should the up 50 ft thats giving you 10' per pole and 10 ' from your neighbor. That's the only thing I could think of. Just something to thank about. Good luck fishing

    You can have as many poles with you as you like. But you can only have three in the water
    at a time. Since you're not aware of this law
    it would probably be a good idea to get a copy of the fishing and recreation guide so you know the fishing rules and don't get BUSTED while
    you'r just trying to have a good time. -Wink-

    Way to go Josh. I feel the same way. When someone shows up where I'm fishing and realizes
    that I'm in the spot they were hoping for I'm
    happy to invite them to stay. I usually fish
    by myself. And I tell them it would be nice to have some company. I've met some good folks this way.

    I was told by a CO down in Aurora that if your RESIDENT license is in Indiana but your NON-RESIDENT license is in Kentucky, that you can still only use 3 poles on the main stem of the Ohio River because your resident license takes precedence. However, if you get into a creek or river on the KY side, you can use unlimited. I have my KY license just so I can fish creeks and rivers on the KY side. You may want to call the DNR and ask about this. Would hate to see anyone get a fine.
