Trolling Regs. Question

Can I troll off-shore with two lines per angler or am I restricted to one? I did some looking around in the regs. and can't find a clear answer. Thanks!

    You can troll as many lines as you want.

    but only on Weds, in months w/an 'R', in the Spring, using hook-less artificial lures, etc, etc...:banghead

    Just making sure. Thanks!

    So can you use multiple lines for any type of fishing?

    I think there are Regs re- 'unattended' equipment that can affect the # of surf rods you can fish, but that's the only similar Regs I know of

    Don't troll through boca grande pass in April, may or june with more than 3 lines in the water either. Another great rule the FWC implemented. In fact, if you do't want to get shot, don't troll through boca grande pass in April, May or June at alll.....
