This thread really has no place on this forum! (in my opinion)
There are plenty of other sites where this subject is being debated .
If you don't like BASS'S decision then start designing the next big thing to replace the A-rig

I believe it its the personal insults and name calling injected into your argument that Mark and Double are referring to. I suppose it is a good tactic when your all out of rational, fact based arguments for your side of the argument? Attacking the person with abusive insults to discredit them, rather than the subject itself, has no place here and is not welcomed. It only serves to discourage input from everyone on an open forum like we have here. Is this your intent?

Clint, yes I meant exactly what I said. I could say alot about what you have said and accused me of without even knowing who I am or what I stand for or even do for a living. But, I won't. Suffice to say if you really knew me you would not be saying any of the things you have accused me of being or standing for.
To the rest of you who have answered this post in my defense, Thank You. People like you are the only reason I still read this forum and occasionally post.
Ya'll have a good day.

Ok dont forget you asked for it. Its not only my right as a citizen of this country, but above all that, my GOD given right to state what my opinion is. So now that we have the first rational thought out of the way. Lets get down to the business at hand. If you make a ludicrous, unfounded, uneducated remark about something you have no knowledge of I believe someone should let you know about it. I doubt seriously if many of you that have commented on this subject negatively have ever caught your first fish on the a-rig. If you had used this new technique you would realize that your comments about it wiping out broodstock are completely unfounded. Which brings me to the point that I made in previous posts that the anglers that are getting this outlawed in tournaments are exactly like you. Ignorant. Not ignorant in math maybe, or spelling, or even how to cook, but ignorant to the lure. You are a hypocrite my friend. You make outlandish statements on your side of the argument, and expect everyone to high five you. I however being a fisherman in every sense of the word know the truth. I have fished this lure for over three months. I can back up what I say, mentally,and physically. I fished it today. We caught eight fish. Really wiped out the lake. I realize that you being from TN are a little butthurt because you cant use an a-rig with five wires. I hate that for you. I speak from experience with the lure, not maybe, or what if, or any of that jazz. I make lures for fun. I have a business that I run that pays my bills. I fish about 15-20 hours a week in the winter, and probably double that in the summer. You my friend have no dog in this fight, and no reason to speak. You dont have the first clue what fishing one of these rigs is like. So your facts are bullshit at best. You dont know a damn thing you havent read about this lure. If I discourage you from saying something unfounded and ignorant I would think you would appreciate it. Only the people that have used this rig should even comment about it. BASS knows dick about it. FLW beat them to the punch. I had already commented on that subject, and moving right along ive wasted thirty minutes on you. Get a real job, get off the internet, hell go fishing. Do something productive with your life. Fighting with me will only bring you mental anguish. If telling the truth is not welcomed here I understand. The funny thing is KNIFEMAKER hasnt replied once to me. If he has a problem with what I said im sure hes a big boy and can handle it hisself.

Might want to look before you post....I actually did respond to your post and would have sooner but I was off the internet making a living.

Ok I stand corrected. Knifemaker did post. While i was fighting with littleriver. Knifemaker I shouldnt have called you names. Sorry. You however dont know anything about these lures or you wouldnt make a ridiculous statement like that. Im sorry for the name calling. Took that too far. Got all wound up about this subject. Noone knows just what this lure will do. Including me. Wiping out broodstock however is a little extreme. Im pretty certain that most practice catch and release anyway. Have a great week and ignore me. Im irish,scottish, german hillbilly. My mouth engages before my brain sometimes. Im done here.

What were we talking about again?? Oh yes, the rig that catches ALL fish. No, but seriously, well not too serious if you know me. It's funny how fickle fishermen are, all we really want is a good day on the water. I mean, isn't that what this whole obsession is about, that's why I do it. And anybody that stands in the way of me and those pea brained little bastards is in trouble. I guess that's why fisherman over react sometimes, if we feel a threat, or maybe just a difference in opinion, about something we're so passionate about, we may be prone to overreact, at least I've been known too. Can't we all just sing cumbaya. Anyways, from now on I will only refer to the A-rig as, THE BASS DESTROYER. /:

You guys want to really know why the A-Rig Catches fish....Cause everyone is using it right now. You can only catch fish on the bait you throw in the water...A spinner bait does the same thing.. make the bass think its a school of fish.. make a spinnerbait with a bunch of blades and WALLA you got the next A rig with 1 hook. Just food for thought. I got a chevy c10 pickup truck lure that catches fish.. do you think If I win a big tournament on it Bass will outlaw it because its not a Toyota. Guess I better have back Tundra bait too. GET BACK TO WORK DIPSTICKs and go create the beautiful baits all of you create... If I offended anyone by callin you a dipstick I ment it with love.
XOXOXOX HUGS AND KISSES

Where I'm from the state law actually doesn't allow you to use any of the rigs that BASS just outlawed. It kind of sucks cuz I know I would smoke the fish on those rigs. Oh well i guess
