Whether fishing for largemouth bass smallmouth bass striped-bass wipers or other game-fish the resemblance of shad or a school of bait-fish has placed the A-Rig in a class of lures that stands all by themselves. Before this innovation species such as bass have always received lure presentations of single lures: top water tackle spinner-baits crank-baits swim baits etc. For the first time in the freshwater angling world multiple lure presentations are now available due to the simple yet effective design of the American ingenuity provided in the Alabama Rig.
In general terms youre going to need a 7-8 foot fishing rod that is at least medium heavy power and with rod action in the moderate to fast action. Your rod blank and rod hardware should be capable of handling anywhere between 20-65 pound braided line and youre going to require a fishing reel that can support the additional torque and load of the retrieve (at least a 6:4:1 ratio). Choose a higher ratio reel for faster retrieves (like a 7:1:1) and be sure to select a reel that is nice and smooth so as not to tangle youre the individual baits in mid-air. Braided line is better designed to handle the intricacies of the Alabama Rig to include: casting retrieval hook set as well as fighting and landing your fish. Braid has less stretch is more durable and overall more responsive to the conditions you will encounter when using this particular fishing lure. Additionally using a heavier braided line will allow you to retrieve youre A-Rig in the event that you get hung up (because they are not cheap and the lure itself starts out in the $25 range and go up in price depending on the price of the lures your place on your rig).
