The Alabama Rig Test

There has been tremendous anticipation for the first FLW tour event with regards to the lethalness of the Alabama rig. With the Bassmaster Elite tour ban, the internet has been abuzz with wild claims. Tomorrow will be the true unveiling of the Alabama rig. We'll see how accurate the hype has been. Last fall's mad scramble to obtain or make a rig didn't fully reveal the story. Now everyone owns one and is hell bent on using it.
Lake Hartwell in South Carolina might be the perfect location for an Alabama fest. Below normal pool and with very little cover is in the water, the bass will be accessible. Seasonal and lake factors will keep the fish migrating from deep winter areas to typical pre-spawn locals. Points, flats and ridges are ideal fishing places and ideal Alabama water.

Both Bryan Thrift and local angler, Troy Morrow, stated in seperate interviews with FLW outdoors that the Alabama rig will not win this event. Can they be sandbagging? They wouldn't be the first to fake the competition out with a white lie. Regardless, it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Stay tuned for all the Lake Hartwell action.
