Mann's Bait Company to Release - The Alabama Rig V

 

PRESS RELEASE

 

Mann’s Bait Company is excited to announce the release of the new Alabama Rig V. The Alabama Rig V is an offspring of the original Alabama Rig, but with the addition of attachable, adjustable teasers to enhance the bait school illusion.


“I designed it to simulate a school of small bait fish in a tight bait ball. It has adjustable snaps that can be moved up and down the arms to get the correct placement for the teasers. ,” said Andy Poss, inventor of the original Alabama Rig.


Said Paul Elias, professional bass angler, “I plan on having both the original Alabama Rig and Alabama Rig V rigged on the deck of my boat anytime it’s legal to fish with one in a tournament. Each one has its own application and both excel at catching fish in the cooler winter months. The new Alabama Rig V is perfect for when bass are feeding on tight schools of bait fish.”


An exclusive full length educational video featuring Paul Elias and Andy Poss fishing the new Alabama Rig V can be seen on Mann’s Bait Company website. The new Alabama Rig V is available in a ready-to-fish 32 piece kit at Mann’s Bait Company website. - Mann's Bait Company

Few lures can say they revolutionize the fishing lure industry. In recent history, the Lucky Craft RC series designed what has taken off as the plastic mold square bill rising where every major lure company has a knockoff. Another company that has to be included was Lunker City who had their registered Slug-Go duplicate in some form or another by every soft plastic lure manufacture. Now there is one more revolutionary lure coming out for anglers to fish with that is going to again incite the fishing tackle industry; probably to duplicate the original once again. The Alabama Rig® is the first of its kind without a real category to classify it in. Read entire Article

I'm usually right there when something new or unique hits the bass fishing news, but I missed checking the news yesterday and missed the breaking story of a new rig called the Alabama rig.  It's been out for a while, but I have never seen it and I am like most of the field at the FLW Tour Open on Lake Guntersville who missed the news are are sitting behind four of the Top 5 in the Event who were using this crazy new rig.  I saw the news stories on FLWOutdoors, BassFan and Rich's Bassin' Blog and had to post something.
