I had the opportunity to pre-fish with pros Gerald Swindle and Cliff Pirch for the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open at Lake Norman.
With new variations on the original Alabama Rig coming out almost weekly, it would be impossible to do an exhaustive list of these fish catching contraptions. But we did manage to round up 29 of the more popular ones. Enjoy!
We've all beaten the winter blues and broken cabin fever. Proud anglers show off their proof that the bass are out there and ready to be caught!
