    Unfortunately, one of the only ways to stay legal nowadays with all the rules and limits is to just stop fishing.
    I don't see why a two J hook rig would be illegal.

    Multiple hooks defined:

    68B-4.002(9) “Multiple hook” means two or more fishhooks bound together to comprise a single unit or any hook with a single shank and eye and two or more pointed ends, used to impale fish.

    So I guess using a treble is illegal.
    How about a fishing lure with 1, 2, or 3 trebles attached that was bought at any store, and is balanced for that lure.

    multiple hooks are banned for certain species when using BAIT. No problem when used on artificials
