Alabama rig

I was wondering how many hooks you can use for a Alabama rig on Lake pend Oreille. I was wondering if there's any lures you couldn't use on Lake Pend Oreille or any of Idaho

Answer: 

When fishing in Idaho, it doesn't matter if you have an "Alabama rig" or gear names after any other state - you can only have 5 hooks per line under your direct control.
I will say a "qualifying yes" to your question on lures.  Provided the lure isn't scented, they would be legal.  Scented lures would be considered "bait" and illegal in "no bait" waters.  The only other way a lure would be illegal is if the hook gap was greater than 5/8" and you were fishing for anadromous Chinook Salmon or Steelhead.
All of those lighted, vibrating, battery operated lures are legal for use in Idaho.
