Does anyone know how many hooks your allowed on your line to striper fish?
I use 3 on my leader,if you in the salt water its salt water rules. Any more than 3 spaced out you can,t cast very well. My mackerel rigs have 5 total.If this is a help? Give Fisheries and Oceans a call in Halifax when in doubt.

If im not mistaken, i beleive stripers fall into the sportfish category.

NOW-ONE SHALL • angle in tidal waters for sportfish with more
than 1 fishing line or with a fishing line to
which more than 3 hooks are attached
• angle in tidal waters for non-sportfish with
more than 5 fishing lines or with a fishing line
to which more than 6 hooks are attached So I guess that you can fish for flounder with 5 lines and striped bass with 1. Does this make sense????

[Sportfish in Nova scotia are Atlantic salmon, landlocked salmon, trout, and smallmouth
bass. Page 57.

Stripe bass should be classed as a sport fish.
