Andy gave me a couple of the rigs. I had sold my 2011 Triton and was waiting to get my 2012 Triton so about a month went by. I decided to fish the FLW Open on Guntersville. I rigged the Alabama Rig up with Mann’s swimbaits and stuck it in my rod locker. When I got to guntersville I started the first morning of practice fishing the typical guntersville fall pattern which was buzz baits and frogs around and in the grass. I fished from daylight until around noon and never got one bite. I was moving to another location and while idling under a bridge I decided to try the Alabama rig around the bridge pilings. I caught a 3lb plus bass on my very first cast and in the next 15 minutes caught a 5 fish limit weighing about 17lbs. I was able to secure several solid patterns on the Alabama Rig and went on to catch over 100 lbs of bass and win the tournament by over a 17lb margin. Read More>
