A bill sponsored by Rep. Bud Heidgerken, R-Freeport, to allow anglers to use two lines and two hooks in Minnesota was laid over for possible inclusion in the Omnibus Game and Fish bill. Wisconsin allows three lines in open water, and North Dakota allows two lines. Anglers would still be confined to catch the daily limit
I just don't see a point to it personally. If someone can convince me of atleast one valid reason how allowing this will benefit fisherman and our resource I will jump on board but until then I am against it.
well in Iowa you can use two poles and in Mn. when ice fishing you can use two poles. So why not be able to use two poles shore fishing or in a boat if aplicable. The only thing is is that maybe you will not be out fishing as long as if you used only one pole. As still wether one or two poles you can only leagally take so many fish. but for me I still would probably use only one poleunless I was still fishing then maybe two for the simple fact of fishing in two different spots to see where the fish were bitting. then i probably would go back to using one pole. It is hard enough to keep an eye on one pole let alone two catch you on the flip side
