Berkley Schooling Rig

Umbrella Rig

The Berkley Schooling Rig is a castable umbrella rig featuring five wire arms designed for attaching a swimbait to each ultimately creating the appearance of schooling baitfish. The Schooling Rig, from Berkley Fishing, is a rig designed in response to the overwhelming demand for umbrella rig lures that was initiated in October of 2011. The wide spread popularity of the multi-lure rigs spawned from the FLW Open event on Lake Guntersville in Alabama which saw the absolute domination of the A-Rig during the four days of competition which yielded giant weights. The initial craze led to a country wide phenomenon that was responsible for incredible numbers and size of bass from Clear Lake, CA to the shores of Lake Champlain, NY and everywhere in between. The Rig was here to stay.

Berkley took to the drawing board, but resisted the temptation to rush the production of their own version. Instead they made numerous prototypes which underwent meticulous research and development under the scrutiny of the top professional bass anglers. After innumerable revisions and modifications, Berkley released their Schooling Rig which has become an instant favorite of bass fishermen all over the country. The Schooling Rig is constructed with corrosion resistant stainless steel and 60lb cross-lok snap swivels offering sufficient strength and durability that will pass the test of time and big bass. The central head of the Schooling Rig comes finished with proven color patterns and 3-D eyes. Additionally, one of the neatest features is a control ring which allows easy storage of the rig when not in use.We offer the Berkley Schooling Rig in the Hitch and Pearl White Colors.

Berkley Schooling Rig Tackle Suggestions

Still, there are many unanswered questions when choosing to use this type of lure. First and foremost anglers may not be aware of just how to set up the unrigged contraption. Out of the package the lure exhibits a straight and narrow appearance that needs to be adjusted in order to be fished properly. The wires should be bent out evenly two give the appearance of a school of bait fish.
When fishing any type of Umbrella Rig we recommend the following gear considerations:

  • Rod: Swimbait rods that can handle 3-5oz - several rod companies are developing umbrella rig specific rods
  • Reel: Choose a reel with a high line capacity spool - we also recommend a 6.1:1 or higher speed reel that can adapt to the diverse conditions the umbrella rig thrives in
  • Line: 50-80lb braided line
  • Hook: Swimbait jig heads ranging from 1/8-3/8oz are commonly used when employing soft plastic swimbaits

Good a rig. Easy to store. Strong wire and not too stiff which makes more natural presentation.
