A link to some great information about how to rig an "Umbrella Rig".

Hopefully, I'll have some pictures of me with a big Striper soon! :)

Concerning the hook thing...are there any regulations that say that you can only drag a certain number of hooks on a particular bait? i.e. If you're pulling an umbrella rig with a hook dangling from each arm and a hook from the center, then you're dragging 5 hooks on a single bait. I think there may be rules against this... Will have to research a bit.

Have you ever heard of anything like that?

have you done your research yet ? There are no limits in VIRGINA waters and in MARYLAND you are only allowed 1 hook per rig......dont quote me tho- do the research so you know for yourself because the game warden dont want to hear " well this guy told me..............." :bangin:
