Fishing with more than one hook.
Is it legal in a tournament to fish with two hooks on the same line?
Fishing Methods and Gear Restrictions (Chapter 2, article 1) of the California Fish and Game Laws - you are allowed to have up to 3 hooks on a single line or 3 lures with 3 hooks each on them. To my knowledge most tournament organizations require that you follow the fish and game laws. I do not know of a tournament organization that has made their rules more stringent than the California Fish and Game Laws.
Hope this answers your question.
