Alabama rig makes mainstream news NBC

The Alabama rig made it on the mainstream news.

From NBC Channel 36

A popular fishing lure called the Alabama rig is making novice anglers look like experts, but also causing concern about illnesses and injuries users say the lure causes...

I use it and do well, but they do have a time and place. It's not magic. Just to play devil's advocate, So Quinn knows for sure, by looking at one sore on a fish, that it is caused by an Alabama rig? So all the sores and irregularities I've seen on bass over the years were caused by the Alabama rig too, before it's invention? Like I said, just playing devils advocate... And yes yes I have had fish get side hooked or otherwise but curious to hear responses..

Better ban Spooks, Jerkbaits and crankbaits. They tend to hook fish in the side if they are hooked in the mouth with the front hook. Happens way more for me with those baits than the a-rig.

I was going to say the same thing and yes If you take someone that know a lake like the back of there hand duh they are going to catch fish. And just the other day on the delta I caught a fish in his back with a jerkbait
