The umbrella rig has taken the fishing world by storm. When Paul Elias dominated on Lake Guntersville using the Alabama Rig the bass fishing world stood up and took notice of this new rig, technique, system or whatever you want to call it.Since that tournament, companies have been making their own version of the umbrella rig. Some with slight differences and some that have taken the idea to a whole new level. Get Hooked Baits introduced their own cast able umbrella rig known as “The Rig”.
Get Hooked Baits is pushing the envelope with their two new umbrella rigs “The Buzz Rig” and “The Spinner Rig”. The names give the product away. They are your normal looking spinnerbait and buzzbait with one big difference. Instead of a hook they both have three wires coming out of the body so you can attach plastic swimbaits to the lure.
The Spinner Rig combines the design of traditional spinner bait with the attention- getting design of an umbrella rig. The Spinner Rig features a coast-lock at the spinner bait blade, allowing you to change your blade in a matter of seconds. With the coast-lock at the blade, you can also add additional lure if desired. The Spinner Rig is constructed of 325 lb. corrosion resistant stainless steel wire and swivels which are 70 lb. test stainless steel. It comes in five different colors and cost 21.99.
The Buzz Rig combines the design of the traditional buzz bait with the attention-getting design of an umbrella rig. The Buzz Rig is designed to run three baits behind standard buzz bait. This allows you the opportunity to catch the fish that normally miss the standard buzz bait. The Buzz Rig is constructed of 325 lb. corrosion resistant stainless steel wire and swivels which are 70 lb. test stainless. It comes in black and white and cost 21.99.
Get Hooked Baits also has a cool pack you can pick up from their website. The rig kit comes with “The Rig”, 5 1/8oz “Shackeyhead jigs” and a 7 pack of swimbaits. The swimbaits and jig heads work great on “The Rig”, “The Buzz Rig” and “The Spinner Rig.
You can find both “The Spinner Rig” and “The Buzz Rig” at Landbigfish.com and Gethookedbaits.com.
