I am sure you have all heard the hype about the Alabama Rig. This rig is not a new concept as it is heavily used in saltwater applications, but as of late it is winning tournament after tournament.

These baits have been hard to find and the ones that you can find are so ridiculously expensive. Now Mann’s Bait company has become the Sole Licensee of the bait and will be producing it for the fisherman.
