Dan you might want to take a look at the "Things to remember tab"
"The JawJacker is legal in your state or province as long you dont live in Minnesota. In some states the JawJacker falls into their the tip-up category and other states it is counts as a single line. Call your local DNR office to be sure of how many JawJackers you can use at one time if your ice fishing regulations aren't clear on the matter. "
Mn there illegal,refer to the Minnesota regulations.I see the throw nets for sale here also.They were the rage a few yaers back and some people bought them.Again without checking the Minnesota rule book.On some other sites it was questioned why they are sold in places they are illegal.Stores are stocked with all availble devices,Stores big ones dont check rules and they are NOT illegal to sell but to use they are.Ignorance of the law is no excuse,Thats what they say.So do some home work before you spend on something that is not legal to use in your home state.It is confusing but its up to the buyer to sort it out.
Of all he things I ever done I aint never had too much fun
