Is this thing real or just a passing fad? I have tried it several times with no success but I am still learning about this new set-up. I see and hear alot of fisherman talking and using this thing but really dont hear them saying they are real happy with the results! Kinda reminds me of that 90s lure that was all over the Tv and the fishing shows I think it was called the Flying Lure System or something like that where the lure would swim away from ya and right into the fishes mouth! Yeah Right!!!!Well I'm a Jig and Pig guy and like to fish slow and with several years of fishing the lakes here in East Tn. I have learned that when the temp heats up in the summer and the water gets warm and the sun goes down the best results is slow fishing with jigs and worm. But I am wondering what ya'll think about this new rig?

I've caught one fish off the rig in guntersville. I see hundreds of guys throwing it but I've haven't seen nanny hooked up. I have friends that claim they kill em on it but I haven't had much luck with it.

I have had fair success with it. I haven't thrown it that much but we did catch 5 or so a couple weeks ago in our tournament on Old Hickory. Still haven't gotten down yet. But it will still be in the boat for the upcoming tournaments.

My son recently caught 65 pounds of Bass on an al. rig on Chickamauga 3 day tournament. Most were using them. He came in 13# out of the money.

I will never use one, at least I can't foresee any good reason to try, but that's just me. I'd rather throw a good ol zoom lizard

I'm speaking from a tournament fisherman's perspective, so keep that in mind. If I only "fun fished", I wouldn't throw it near as much. If you fish the TVA River system, from the Fall to the Spawn, you better throw it or you will get beat. I was stubborn when they first came out, but I got tired of donating money so I learned to throw it. On Guntersville, you can't win without it. Yes, you can catch em without it, and yes, you might stumble upon a big bag from time to time, but if you look at the guys that are consistently winning, they throw the rig.

The reason people see everybody throwing it and not catching anything is because it's not a bait your gonna get alot of bites on. But the ones that bite are the ones that it takes to win a tournament.

It's like any other lure, there is a time and a place for it. But one thing I have learned, if the time and place are right, and you are not throwing it, your not going to beat the guys that are. Also, this lure is not as stupid proof as what people make it out to be. Just like a crankbait, spinnerbait, or a stick of dynamite, there are little tricks that help to get you more bites than those that just chunk and wind.....

Well said and I agree! I too dont really like the A-rig but learned quickly to either throw it or get beat for the several months a year when it shines! As TT said, its not as easy as buying one and rigging just any baits and hooks and catching fish. There are many tricks, different style rigs, and bait selections that make your success go WAY up in different conditions!

This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It is not a miracle bait, but it will get bites when other similar baits won't during the right time.
