Okay. Thank you. The older gentleman at canadagua lake had orange juice cans nailed to the sides of his wooden boat and had a spoon on a leader in each one I had never been on finger lakes before and thought he was wasting his time until he opened his cooler. Lesson learned

Theres no hook requirement anymore. However your limited to 5 lures

Maybe this will help clarify the number of hooks (hook points) question:

 

 

                *********************************************

Freshwater Fishing Regulations

Methods of Taking Fish

Angling

Angling means taking fish by hook and line. This includes bait and fly fishing, casting, trolling and the use of landing nets to complete the catch.

  • Anglers must be in immediate attendance when their lines are in the water.
    • The use of set lines where the angler is not in immediate attendance is prohibited.
  • An angler may operate no more than three lines with or without a rod.
    • each line is limited to not more than five lures or baits or a combination of both.
    • in addition, each line shall not exceed 15 hook points in any combination of single, double or treble hooks.
  • Snatching, lifting, hooking and use of tip-ups are not angling.

          **********************************************

ie: a number 11 Rapala has 9 hook points (three treble hooks)

No. They were the half paper half metal ones I grew up with in 1960 s. He showed me a thin cable with a swivel every ten feet or so with a good size weight on bottom. He explained that as you let it out you would clip on one of the spooned leaders The called it a Seth green rig and said that's how they would figure out how deep fish were. He had an old lapstreak wooden boat and was probably eighty years old at the time

If it catches fish who can argue.  I remember those oj cans.  Perhaps a little oj scent is a fish attractant too. 😉

I have all my rolled up leaders with lures attached (single hooks on them) on fives blocks of styrofoam for each rig (usually run three or four of them). I usually have several sets of them with spoons all set up with rubber band around them so I can switch them out as desired. All the sets are contained in a waterproof zippered bag (softsided cooler bag).
