You can bring as many rods as you want, but you can only put 2 lines in the water at the same time. Plus, it's not like your going to fish more than 2 rods at the same time.

Who can confirm this 2 rod thing as I though it was always 1 unless your in the ocean? If thats the case I've been fishing at 1/2 capacity frig!

Everyone should read up on your regs or stay off the water because page 5 of the regs clearly states the following.......check the exceptions though

I don't fish any of the great lakes however everyone should always check the Regs for the zone that they are fishing in since they are all different. Ignorance is no excuse for the law, however Lake Erie is one of those exception to the rule on page 5. Being a bass fisherman I hardly ever troll and when I do it's for pike and walleye and only use one rod anyways since it is the law on all the lakes I fish. :mrgreen:

good info. just a note that on erie common presentation when running planner boards is a plug and a spoon off of a three way swivel. plug acts like a sinker and gets you down to desired depth and spoon flutters above plug resulting in many double headers, but you got to keep moving to prevent getting tangled up. each angler has two rods with two lures on each and the trick is you keep your outside lines out a bit further so that when you get a strike your outside lines you avoid coming in contact with the inside and at the same time as you are fighting your fish you let out more line to your inside line and move it out closer to the board and now your inside line becomes your outside line and you have all kinds of room on that side of the boat to land your fish, thanks again for the info about the rods.
