Deciding On A A Rig

Recommended Posts

Ok guys I need some advice. I am getting back into tournaments and Will be fishing Kentucky Lake. I understand you must follow the state laws depending on where you're fishing. That being said what is the best A Rig in your opinion? I have read where some people are having problems with the wires breaking. I personally have never fished with one before so if there are some good technique advice feel free to offer it :)

 

Thanks in advance.

The flashmob jr. works well for me and aren't that expensive compared to other rigs that come with blades. If you want, change the quick snaps out for split rings. Takes a little more time if you have to change hooks but i trust split rings more than the snaps after having a couple good ones come off due to them coming undone and/or straightening out.

If you decide to use one I recomend Shane's baits. They are the beast I have tried.

I second this question. Threw my old man's and it just seems way to heavy to throw all day. And I'm starting to shy away from them seeing as I outfished him using nothing more than a number 5 jointed shad rap in crawdad. Are they worth throwing cast after cast or should I just stick to what works?

Hog Farmer is a great one.  I like the picasso as well, and for something different I like the Krazy 8 by Hi's Tackle Box.

Fished a few different brands Yum is good I like Eco Pro but the one I've been fishing lately is Nichols Nick Rig 3 Umbrella Rig and its one of truest running A rigs I've fished,  it comes with 2 4.5 willow leaf blades 3 wires for your swim baits  I like that cause of the three hook rule in the FLW.

I really like the regular 5 wire one.  I've been thinknig of getting the 5 wire with the blades on it and replacing them with dummy baits at the split ring...  blades look great I just never get bit as well on them.

Fish the Yums but they will break eventually.  The Yellow Hornet A-rig with the blades is by far the most durable I've found.  Fish that one and the Eco-Pro but the wires on the Eco-Pro will break after a dozen fish or so and re-straightening the wires.  But has some of the best action.  All of them I fish with blades and all 5 wire with 2 dummy heads.  They seem to run better then the 3 wire rig.  Read the rules closely as some will only let you fish 5 baits and 5 spinners total.  You replace the spinners and put dummy baits on it could be outside of their rules (FLW Rules 5 baits and 5 blades, no more then 3 hooks or State Regs if less).

The Krazy 8 looks really good may need to try that one. The Nichols Nick Rig does really have 5 wires and yes you can put anything and everything on these things, read where someone on here puts Johnson spoons on his A rig heck I'd like to try that.

Another vote for Hog Farmers. Expensive, but worth it for a good one. I also like the Picasso's.

I don't throw them much buch the flash mobs work and can be had easily. The Picasso ones are also good. I was super interested in the paycheck one when I first saw it but just never got one. It's arms are semi flexible and you can like pulse it and get more movement out of it. I think they are way more durable also.
