Default 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.
