Continued: Anderson: Alabama bass-fishing rig banned for FLW tournaments

Fennel, of FLW, thought state conservation agencies would restrict or ban the rigs over time. But that didn’t happen, and now that so many variations of them are on the market, and likely account for a significant portion of recent bass lure sales, restrictions might never be forthcoming.

“We didn’t want to have a knee-jerk reaction when these rigs first hit the bass fishing scene,’’ she said. “Instead, we decided to give them time and leave it to states to regulate them. But that hasn’t happened in many states where we hold tournaments, and we couldn’t wait any longer to take a stand.’’

  • An Alabama rig simulates a school of baitfish. As shown here, the rig is illegal in Minnesota. The rig would be legal here if it had only one hook.
