Alabama Rigs for Striped Bass Fishing.

The Alabama Rig™ or The "Arkansas A Rig" or whatever you prefer, is a lighter, cast-able version of the off shore popular umbrella rigs that has been used for years when trolling for striped bass.

Just like its heavier big brother umbrella rig, the smaller lighter "A" rigs you can buy, modify or make come with a 2 to 5 wire harness that allows for the use of multiple baits or fish attractors on a single line.

Striped Bass caught by Rodney Ply on an Alabama type rig.The Striper Guides on Lake Ouachita have used their own cut down modified lighter umbrella rigs for years.
 It was one of our methods we use to catch fish when they start cruising the lake.

Light modified Umbrellas or A-rigs can be cast or trolled on planer boards using your electric trolling motor as propulsion instead of fuel inefficient outboards creating no pollution to the lake helping keep Lake Ouachita one of the cleanest lake in the nation.

Umbrella rigs are illegal or have limited hook usage in many states.

Note:
State by State Umbrella Rig Regulations Vary.
Always check your state regulations and restrictions for updates before using multiple lure rigs.
Use of Alabama type lures is a rapidly changing area of the law and the regulations in your state may have changed
 or may be changing soon.
