    I know this is a dumb question, but I can NEVER remember the rule. I'm going rockfishing and I need to know the California rules for hooks.

    I typically do a double dropper loop rig with two single hooks (or two single-hooked jigs). My question is about treble hooks. Does a treble hook count as ONE hook, or more than one hook?

    For example, if I used a large yoyo jig instead of the lead weight (has one treble hook), can I also add one dropper loop single hook to the line? In that scenario I would have 1 treble hook and 1 single hook. Does that comply with the California hook rule, or is that a violation?

    Thanks for setting me straight!

    You are golden. In that case you would have two hooks and be okay.

    It's essentially two hooks of any type.
