I believe fishing rods are like women. "You can have as many as you can handle." Naw, I'm just kidding that sounds kinda bad.

I am not sure about the legal limits on the number of baited rods you can have in the water at one time; I have to check on that one. I think I have read or heard about it somewhere but I have no clue as to the number allowed.

I know certain piers have rules on fishing rods allowed per person. Like no more that 3 rods per person or something like that, but it could just be a pier rule but I don't know since it has been a long time since I have been on a pier. I guess they have those rules so people don't go on a pier with like 10 or 12 rods and cast them all out and take over a big area of the pier.

It used to be 3 rods in Texas, but I think they have took that law out, but I'm not 100% certain there is not a limit on them now, but it is not 3 anymore!!!

I think the best way to handle that question is RESPECT. If you are on a pier with others, keep it down to a fair minimum. If you are on the jetties and there are not a bunch of people out there, again, make a fair decision. If you are on your own, knock yourself out.

It's really irritating when you go somewhere and some guy has like four or five poles, he is all by himself and he is taking up most of the fishing area. That's not cool!

I read every word of the fishing regs and the only limit I can find is a freshwater limit of 100 hooks on a trotline. Anything else seems legal. I have read articles in the Texas Fish & Game magazine by Mr Crappie where he was trolling with 8-10 rods at once.
