I hope I don't look too stupid asking this question 'cause usualy about the time I start asking the answer comes to me and I think man that was a stupid question.

In the 2003 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, there are some General Regulations on page 13 ( as shown below). My question is with item 4.b. does this mean that a spinner or some other type of lure cannot be attached on the main line above the splitter for the dropper? This doesn't seem right because I've seen a fair numbber of rods rigged just so. Wow, I hope I'm not stepping on anyones toes here. I sure don't mean to do that or point fingers.

I just can't quite figure the intent.....

The intent is to keep the weight and the hook separated to thwart snagging. I do not believe you would have a problem anytime the lead is on a separate dropper line from the lure. Snagging while fishing a dropper/spreader is pretty rare.

Crabbait,
I must be dense, because if that is the intent why would they word it as such? :whazzup:
And not allow "hooks above the weight"? Wouldn't a spinner attached up the line be "hooks above the weight"? Also, just for clarification, I'm talking about a modifying a conventional rig for hog-line fishing.
