Always have been legal. Only the hook may not be spring loaded.

As long as it's tension on a fishing rod that sets the hook it's legal. The law prohibits spring loaded hook setting devices.

No springs=No problems

Yep. Perfectly legal. Just use the recommended rod. Some rods have exploded under the tension.

I have the Automatic Fisherman, have had it for years now. It works best in Lockport cause it is always going off there.
