Can you use a chicken rig in the surf with 5 hooks on it?

Are you asking whether it's legal, or whether it's physically feasible?

legal. If it is legal I can make it physically feasible. :p How many hooks can you have on a salt water line?

my plan is basically just put live mullets on as many hooks as I can to fish the surf for red drum.

Oh, it's legal to use five hooks (or more) in saltwater. Here's the link for Texas fishing regulations:

I hope you're using premium gear because in the event you catch more than one bull red, it's going to get tested to the max. Have you ever caught a bull red? One 40 incher will give you a ride. I couldn't imagine two or more on at one time and each deciding it needs to go a different direction than the other. Keep us updated.

This is amazing! I can hook leaders in a chain one after the other and can have 20 hooks all baited with shrimp to go after croakers? laugh I see a fish fry for my family!

Used to use sabiki rigs tipped with fish bites or shrimp for whiting.

I did this with a noodle as a float and let the current of the 2nd gut (about 5 feet deep) carry it parallel to the beach. Caught a bunch of hardheads and that is about it. frown Only used 12 hooks though. had a heavy weight on the bottom with the float closest to the pole with 12 hooks in between.
