Default Is this rig illegal?

If I am fishing alone, and have a two rod stamp and I am fishing with two rods that have lures on them and then two rods that have side planers on them (only side planers, no lures) is this a leagal way to fish.

I'm pretty sure your perfectly fine.

If you are checked, you can show how you are not fishing with 2 of the poles as they are merely for the planers.

The rods attached to the planers are no different than a downriggger or an outrigger.

I think you could have 10 poles in the water as long as only two of them have hooks.

I understand the way a mast system works, however I would prefer to use rods. It has the same affect, but is takes up less space as I will have them in rod holders mounted on the outer edge of my boat. This makes the middle are open, and it is easy to stay away from the planer lines. I have thought this through, and definately prefer using rods vs. mounting a two planer mast system. I just have to make sure it is leagal. I do a little tournement fishing and do not want to break the rules.

you should be fine as long as there are no hooks, as for the law saying you cut the line, that would make them look stupid as you reel in the planer board

yeah if there are no hooks on the planers then it would be legal.

Are you sliding your releases and lines down the planer line? I know a lot of people do that because it means you don't have to reel in the board with all its drag and you can simply slide more releases down the line between the boat and planer for quicker rerigging.

Dan, Yes, I will be sliding releases and lines down the planer line. It is much quicker for rigging and easier to fight fish. I am sold on the concept as long as I am not breaking any rules. I am hoping one of the folks on here from the DOW will chime in and confirm my belief that it is a legal rig as long as there are no lures, hooks, etc attatched to the planer line. Thanks for the help everyone.

Im confused as to why you want to run planer boards with nothing on them?
