So what type of fishing rod is required to cast one of these new contraptions and how do you fish an A-Rig? For starters youre going to need a heavier outfit to cast the Alabama Rig. Its not the weight of the rig (approximately 3/8 ounces with no lures) but depending on the size and weight of the individual lures can weigh in upwards of 3+ ounces (or the equivalent of a large West Coast swim bait or muskie lure). So if youre accustomed to fishing a lighter rod better hit the gym and bulk up those casting muscles or better yet just be sure your armed with a fishing rod designed for casting (and retrieving) this particular lure. So again what type of rod will I need? Well it depends on the lures your throwing the water you are covering and the technique your using but a good place to find the right rod for you is to design the perfect Alabama Rig custom fishing rod.
To satisfy these requirements in one rod is very difficult so rods are made which place more emphasis on one particular quality often at the expense of the others. A rod with great casting qualities will tend to be stiffer and will be less forgiving when fighting a fish so it needs to be used with a heavier leader - which may be more easily detected by the fish. A very flexible rod can be used to cast slowly and accurately will soak up the energetic activity of a small fighting fish but will not cast the line very far and will be unable to handle a large fish. A travelling rod that can be broken down into five or more pieces to fit in your suitcase will have to sacrifice qualities of flexibility or sensitivity. Compromise is often the key.
