In Missouri you are allowed "Three unlabeled poles"... The rest must have your name an address on them. The best idea I've heard so far is to use those little address labels that charities send when they are looking for a donation.
Unfortunately, I threw mine away before I decided to learn to spider rig. :(

Other ideas? Ugly label maker tape? Uglier luggage tags. Duct tape and waterproof magic marker? (Ugliest)... Maybe I'll just break over and see what those stamp/lablel stores has to offer. Could peel off the mailing label from my tax forms :)

Wal-Mart has a package of labels. Just buy a pack. Then print them off on your printer.

Thanks, Red. By the way, I noticed the Hi-Tek website on your post...Are you associated with Hi-Tek... If so, you'll be glad to know the newly labeled poles will be in a set of Hi-Tek holders. :)

Have a great day and May the crappie bite.

Out of curiosity, what is the reason why you have to label your poles?

Ditto! I read the topic of this thread and thought maybe it was about being organized, you know, label a rod as "downrigger trolling" or "Planer-board Trolling" or maybe "Noodle Rod".... Was even all set to crack a joke and say I labeled mine "Fred, Barney, Bam-Bam and Dino"... Now I'm curious as to why the state would require labels on poles.

I bet its a law in Mo that after three poles your name has to be on them. That way if the warden walks up. He knows who has how many rods out?
Just a guess.

Yes in MO after 3 rods you have to have your name on them. With a total of 33 hooks may be used at one time.
