Won Bass - Alabama Rig/Umbrella Rig
This is obviously a "HOT TOPIC" since the recent FLW events. I wanted to just make it clear what the WON BASS rules will be or have been in any Team or Pro/Am events in the future. Remember, our rules state that all DFG rules will also apply to any and all of our tournaments!
Per our rules:
Only artificial lures may be used. No live bait, cut or prepared baits other than pork rind or mammal
hide may be used. Fish “attractants and scents” may be utilized. All fishing
must be accomplished with one rod and reel combination used at one time,
meaning each cast must be made and line retrieved before another cast
may be made with another outfit. A contestant may have an unlimited number
of rods and reels on the boat rigged and ready to fish. Trolling, (the act
of manipulating the lure solely by maneuvering the boat under any type of
power) is prohibited. The intentional snagging of fish is strictly prohibited.
Per DFG Rules:
An angler may use 1 rod and 1 reel at 1 time from cast to retrieve. An angler may fish a bait or up to 3 baits at 1 time on 1 rod and 1 reel. The 3 lures may have up to 3 hooks on each lure. If you are throwing an umbrella style rig, then only 3 lures may have hooks on them at anytime, regardless of how many hooks those 3 lures may have on them.
Simple as that!
