Morning fellas...how many hooks are you allowed to use when throwing an A-Rig on Fork? Does it vary lake to lake? Thanks Scott

It varies by state, I know in KY you can only have 3, but on Fork I have never seen more than 5

I don't think the state regulates it.

Not regulated, take a look at the regulations manual TPW puts out. Very useful information and answers most all of your questions

Maximum of 100 hooks on all devices. You could technically put all 100 on a single line. You're gonna need a big rod.

That article is not correct. There is no hook limit on A-rigs in Texas.

I've thrown a 9 wire rig with 9 hooks.

But throwing it on Fork can be an expensive proposition the more hooks and wires you put on it.

Actually you are both wrong. 100 is the limit.
