Striper Fishing Lake Texoma with Alabama Rigs makes catching kind of easy! Why do A-Rigs catch Striped Bass? The A-Rig is a somewhat new fishing lure that took the Professional Bass Fishing Tour by storm in 2010. Now B.A.S.S. does not allow anglers to fish A-Rigs, but Striper fisherman love the secret weapon! The five-arm casting umbrella rig makes a huge ball of bait profile that Stripers love! Add five willow leaf blades and you get a great bait ball profile with a lot of flash! The Yumbrella Flash Mob Jr is the best selling A-Rig and puts big Striper in the net! You will need some good jig heads and soft plastic swimbaits, and then you are ready to Striper Fish Texoma! Don’t use jig heads over 1/4oz. Remember you will have five jig heads, five swimbaits, hooked to a one-ounce A-Rig!
How to Striper Fish with A-Rigs
Do not overweigh the A-Rig! Using jig heads over 1/4oz will make the casting umbrella rig a work out! The A-Rig weighs 1oz and you add another ounce of jig heads, then swimbaits, that’s a heavy striper lure! We are finding most of our Striped Bass deep and hugging the bottom! The water is still very cold, so slow roll those A-Rigs! We are fishing in 20 to 25 feet of water and slowly reeling the A-Rigs across the bottom and catching some nice fish! Fish A-Rigs deep and slow until the weather warms up! When Lake Texoma surface water temperature reaches 70 degrees you can start speeding up the reel retrieve! The first part of April we will start using smaller swimbaits on a 3/4oz jig heads and vertically jigging slab spoons!
