What is an Alabama Rig?
An Alabama rig, also known as an umbrella rig or a-rig is a device that allows you to use multiple baits at once. This design makes it perfect for mimicking a small school of baitfish.
Alabama rigs have a swimbait style head with thin wires branching out similar to an umbrella. The number of wires differs from rig to rig but the most popular variation is 5 wires. These wires have swivels and snaps on the end that allow you to rig hooks on the end of each wire.
