Changes are in the WindAuthor: Captain Mike Gerry | Posted: 04/21/2012
Once again it appears the tackle industry is moving on and some abrupt changes in tackle are here again! It started last fall with the Paul Alias win here on Guntersville with the Alabama rig, the 5 lure set up is changing the fishing world and the concept itself is only at its onset! That's right many of my tackle sponsor suppliers have ideas way beyond the deep running shad cluster look, from top water clusters to multiple worm looks and more, so keep your eyes and ears open as this is just the beginning for this rig!
Along with the Alabama rig there is also a new concept involving football heads, Punisher Lures has come out with a versatile football head they call the "Hail Mary," it allows you to work a deep ledge with a football head that you can set up in many different ways. The head itself is set up with a slip O- ring that you can put your own favorite hook on with a worm, creature bait, floating bait and more so you can give that ultimate deep water look that will just tear up the deeper water fish in the heat of the summer or cold of the winter. The big O-ring allows the bait to move freely and swivel and moves slightly with water current, this will once again add to or change the concept for the deep water ledge fisherman. In fact it will take the football head jig that so many have been successful on for so many years and change that presentation once again! The possibilities once again seem to be limitless and we will see many different concepts around this over time! I can imagine this football head set up with an 8 inch leader, with the hook being offset from the head and being dragged on the bottom with a floating worm attached, can you imagine how inviting this could be for a big bass sitting on the bottom in 20 ft. of water looking for and easy lunch. The only limits will be your imagination, and that will lead to many different ways to present this football head!
Change is upon us, and the only limits will be our creativity!
