OK, it is time for my opinion on the Alabama or "Umbrella rig" question. It should be outlawed in every state in the Union! It is like the belly putter in golf. It isn't pure, it isn't true to the sport and good fishermen did fine for years without it. Its a "chicken shit" way to fish like the belly putter is to golf. Let's get back to purity and honor and doing the right thing. So to the powers that be; Ban it as soon as you can and lets get on to the fine art of outsmarting the fish with legal and fair tackle.
