What Knot Are You Useing For Your Alabama Rig??

Recommended Posts

Just would like to know what knot you guys are fishing on the A-rig. I did use the SD jam knot and it worked good on 65 lb. braid. Is there a better knot for this rig?

Uni has always worked fine for me.

I've been using the SD Jam Knot with Suffix 832 65lb braid for my A-rigs, too. Have not had any issues with it.

Pitzen, but I'm usually not throwing A-Rig on braid. Usually throw it on 25lb big game.

Its not hard, but you will loose some line everytime you retie.

First time I did it, it was. Then I just stuck a rubber band around the whole rig to hold the wires together. Much, much easier.

I'm using a double braid knot and half hitching the tag thru the eye and loop before I cinch it down.

I also take a split ring and attach it to two split rings and tie to that. Then I can switch between the different rigs I have quickly.
