BASS recently modified it rules for their BassMaster Classic and Elite Series tournaments to prohibit the use of the so-called “Alabama Rig” developed a short time back by pro baser, Paul Elias. It is a lure with five trailing wires to which five additional lures can be attached which is believed to create the elusion of a passing school of fish. According to its distracters, this rig drives bass crazy. So far as anyone seems to know it is perfectly legal in most states.
Pro bass Kyle Mabry of Birmingham has developed his own version of the Alabama Rig which he is selling under the name Yellowhammer. That yet another fish slayer so named just struck me as a bite funny by rammer jammer.
