Maine: New Regulations on Bait Fishing
 
State of MAINE: Effective 2013 it is ILLEGAL to bait fish for striped bass and bluefish with any hook other than an Inline Circle hook.

Maine specifies an Inline Circle hook as non-offset and the point at 90 degrees from the hook shank.
The use of Treble hooks when bait fishing is forbidden.
Lures: maximum two (2) treble hooks.

can you have other hooks in your possession and not use them or should you empty your tackle bag/box before you go hit the water?

Possession of other hook types is not illegal because there are other fish species, e.g. Perch. Just don't use them for baitfishing for Striped Bass and Bluefish.

Are Hi/Low Rigs and Slap Shot rigs available with the Owner hooks?
