#2955, "Alabama rama"


  

          

So I talked to a certain friend of mine, you all know who who is out at Kentucky lake right now getting ready for the FLW fish off thing for the Everstarts.

He says it's Alabama rig fever out there with everyone scrambling to hook up every form of 5-way rig imaginable.

So in the spirit of new lure fever, I bring you, Alabama Rig Deal Spectactular!!!

First thing you'll need is a nice meaty rod. How about an Okuma C3 7\'10" X-Heavy for $98. Are you kidding me, $98 for this rod?!


Then you'll need a beefy reel. Curado 300E should suffice. Granted it's $249 but if any part of your setup is going to take a beating casting 5 or 8 ounces of contraption, it's the reel.


Now some braided line. TW has an endless array of it.

And then the jigheads. These Buckeye Heads are on sale, 3 pack for $3.89


I'm a fan of eyeballs, so I'd be inclined to go with the Big Hammer head myself. 3 plain 3/8oz heads are similarly $3.89


Now for some baits. The herd of basstrix clones seems to be thinning down these days. A pack of 5, 5inch original Basstrix in Hologram Shad will keep enough baits on your rig for the southern states and only set you back $9.99.


On the topic of not very sporting ways to catch fish in the south, did you know that in many states, using live trout for bait is legal? I've heard that in Georgia you can go in to a bait shop and select your live trout by the piece for purchase as bait. Using 5 lures at a time doesn't seem like much of a big deal after that. Ridic!

Now you know my love affair with Big Hammer, that's what I'd be pulling, er casting. A 4 pack of 5in Hammer tails runs $4.69. Superglue the baits to the heads and you can land a lot of freshwater bass. The money color as always is #13 baitfish


To spice up the mix, you might try the Keitech Swing Impact. These are nice baits. They do tear up, but they're scented, finesse, and swim great. Best of all they are cheap. An 8 pack of 4 inch runs $4.75. Crystal shad is nice


Last, you're going to need a rubber mesh net. Because the tangle that's going to unfold in a regular net is going to generate a lot of cuss words. This looks passable. Ego Rubber Mesh Net Large Clear 50 bucks.
