Jaw Jacker received an email today from ODNR that the Jaw Jacker is considered a tip up.

This means you can have up to 6 on the ice.

If you purchase some, then I would have Matt email you the email so you can print it off. You can just a ODNR officer in case he considers these as a pole.

This will help them out.

Matt, I have viewed your video and website.  Your jaw jacker device appears to work very well!
The definition of a tip up in Ohio is:
 
(AAAAA) “Tip-up” means a device consisting of a hook and line attached to a spring or other device which is capable of raising a small flag or other signaling device when a fish is biting or is hooked.
The jaw jacker device definitely fits the definition and would be legal in Ohio when used as a tip up.
If you have more questions, please give me a call.  Good luck!

That's awesome Dave.
If I end up getting a couple of these I would surely want to have something with me if the "man" questions it.

Thanks!

Thanks for posting the e-mail from the ODNR David. You guys in Ohio should have fun with the JawJacker this year. I should be on the ice the day after Thanksgiving. I can't wait to see and hear JawJackers going off again. It's better than Christmas morning. You guys will soon know what I mean!

I set this as sticke because a recent thread has been debating it.  Now everyone can find it.  Hope not a problem, we can un-sticky it later.

I only picked up 24 Jaw Jackers to see how they would sell. They were all gone within 2 days. I already have my order in for 250 of them for next year. Something tells me I should change it to 500............Mark
