Ok so when I was out on the fox sunday morning I noticed two gentlemen and what looked to be an odd amount of lines in the water, so I went to check it out. Ended up being 2 guys with 7 rods with lines in the water. This was at the Fabayan Forest Preserve. I was under the assumption that it was two poles per fisherman. Am i correct? I didnt want to call anyone if I was not correct. But I thought it looked at little ridiculous. Plus they took up most of the one side of the island so no one else could fish. Any info would help. Thanks Guys

Two poles is the limit at a large majority of lakes and rivers.

RULES are subject to change ,the last info iv herd on this subject is you can use a troutline on the fox river with up to 50 hooks or 2 poles with 25 hooks on each pole or 50 poles with 1 hook per pole , but the rule is you better have your name & address on every pole after 2 poles , also the last iv herd is there is no limit on cats & carp on the fox river , iv seen this guys down at the boat club blocking the boat launch with all of their poles then they get mad when you launch your boat lol

I believe they were doing something illegal then because 7 rods with two guys is way to many. oh well next time I might say something...but is it really worth it? I can just imagine the look they would give me.

I tend to let the IDNR deal with these matters, I know of a guy last week said something to another fisherman about an illegal fish and that the fish shouldbe released and it turned into a fist fight they both were arrested, no i dont think it was worth it .

I think its two rods per person two. Maybe the wives were ka-bits-ing in the car. Though not legal, certainly arguable.

Yep, leave to the DNR. I thought they had a number on the license too.

Illinois River you can troll 3 rods.

If you consider the amount of water in Illinois, you'll see that regulation is only on a few locations. Check the 2008 fishing regulations under "site specific" to see that actuall rules. I didn't see that location listed so you would be able to use up to 50 hooks in total, it doesn't matter how many poles you have. The catch is, anything over 2 has to be tagged with your name and address.

Hope this helps.

SPORTFISHING LICENSE
A sport fishing license entitles an angler to
take fish, crayfish, turtles or bullfrogs within
limits denoted in the Statewide Creel and Size
Limits Table, except for endangered and
threatened aquatic life. It is unlawful to sell
any aquatic life, or parts thereof, taken by a
sport fishing license. Devices permitted by
the sport fishing license include: bank pole
and line, dip net throw line, trot line, buoyed
device (jug fishing), or other legal devices not
exceeding 50 hooks in total (except as noted
under “Ice Fishing” section). Also permitted
are legal-sized cast nets, shad scoops and
minnow seines for bait fishing. Smelt may be
taken in Lake Michigan with legal size dip
nets, gill nets and seines. Two untagged
sport fishing devices are allowed; each device
in excess of two must be tagged with the
angler’s name and address. If attached to a
tree, the device must be attached only to the
main trunk below the water line.
