Goin to RC.. gonna set some trotlines... is there a limit on how many hooks i can have in the water at one time? Only thing i can find on tpwd is one trotline cannot have more than 50 hooks.
A buddy just told me that he can only have 50 hooks in the water at any given time on his lake.. so what he does is takes 2 fishing poles and runs 2 trotlines with 24 hooks each.. that gives him 50 wet hooks at one time.

Anyone know where i can go to find this info..

Thanks for reading

His buddy is wrong. 100 hooks allowed, no more than 50 on any one device.

Good thing the GW didn't catch me when my tackle box fell off the boat. I had at least 347 wet hooks.
