Are you not allowed one crab catcher one rod? I don’t see a problem as long as you’re not using more than once crab catcher or more than one rod. I usually take two rods with me, one for catching mullet, but don’t always use them both at once. A lot of people still use two rods, but it’s a lot better than a few years back when some of the asians would be using 4 or 5 rods each and the whole end of the pier was lined up with rods. Things should improve once the rangers start going up there. Someone told me they were already meant to be up there, but I haven’t seen any rangers since last summer.
