A-rig gets A rat­ing

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST/TELEVISION - — Staff report

The Alabama rig is a hot lure for win­ter­time bass fish­ing at Beaver and Ta­ble Rock lakes, but you won’t find one tied to Greg Bo­han­nan’s fish­ing line be­cause Alabama rigs are not al­lowed at Wal-Mart FLW Tour tour­na­ments. An Alabama rig, also called an A-rig or um­brella rig, is like five or six lures in one. The lure looks like the skele­ton of an open um­brella with a plas­tic grub or swim bait at the end of each spoke. Line is tied to the rig at the hub. The lure re­sem­bles a school of bait fish.

Other tour­na­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions have cho­sen to pro­hibit Alabama rigs in their event, but Bo­han­nan said they’re def­i­nitely ef­fec­tive.
