    Default Number of lines ice fishing

    I see in the Trooper reports that one person was fined over the weekend for having more than two lines in the water. I see the reg's state "two lines closely attended."

    But, then I have seen driving down some roads near lakes, guys have tip-ups out. So a person can have one tip-up out plus one hand-line.

    Anyone read this different for trout and salmon? (not talking pike and burbot)

    Default Yes

    Yes for pike and burbot you can have the same number of lines as the total number of total fish for that area.

    But, salmona and trout are different.

    I know it is two lines per person unless otherwise indicated in the regs, I don't think it matters whether it is a tip-up or an ice-rod, but you can't leave your gear unattended either way. That is how I read it anyway. Best of Luck.

    I have read lots of articles in magazines about guys ice fishing in the Fairbanks area for Burbot, leaving lines miles apart and checking them later. Off to the regs...
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Yes, I think you can have set-lines for burbot, but not trout or salmon, they'd be gone by the time you checked anyway, dirty lure-spitters.

    2 lines except in pike lakes where 5 lines are allowed
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
