How many hooks can I use off 1 line for whitefish?

In the past I have fished with a small weight on the end of the line and baited hooks coming of the main line. This was a long time ago and I cannot find anything about it in the regulations. I was wondering if it is still legal and if so how many hooks can I have off 1 line.

Answer

In Idaho, you can use 5 hooks per line (see page 51 in the 2013 - 2015 Fishing Rule booklet - middle of left hand column) unless noted otherwise in the exceptions.
