Picasso Lures Finesse School-E-Rig

Alabama Style Rig

The Picasso Finesse School-E-Rig is a multi-wire Alabama-Style Rig that features a central connection from which five wires extend and end with snap swivels. After the mind-boggling display by Paul Elias at the FLW Tour Open on Lake Guntersville, the Alabama-Rig popularity has spread like wildfire. Although resembling something you would see hanging above a baby's crib, the odd looking contraptions have proven to be unbelievable fish catchers. Stories of hundred fish days have quickly gone from fish tales to reality after more and more anglers got their hands on the A-Rig. In just the following three weeks after the FLW Open, and additional three major tournament titles fell victim to the Alabama Rig.

The Finesse version of the School-E-Rig is a smaller, scaled down version of the original School-E-Rig with a total length of 5" and weighing just 1/8oz before adding baits. The smaller size exhibited by the finesse affords anglers a more versatile approach for multi-lure umbrella rigs. Anglers can cast this bait with less effort and more accuracy resulting in a rig that can be employed around docks, laydown trees and other structural elements. Additionally, the bait will perform better with the smaller size swimbaits due to the .035" wire diameter it possesses.

When fishing any type of Alabama 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
The original Alabama Rig has spawned a similar product from just about every manufacturer in the industry, but as angler have the opportunity to put more time in with the technique there are modifications being made to better suit their needs. One such example is Picasso's Finesse School-E-Rig which has become an instant hit in the Ozark region and other areas which present a large population of spotted bass.

The Picasso Finesse School-E-Rig measures 5" in length and weighs 1/8oz. We offer the bait in four different colors: Albino Ayu, Big Sexy, Gizzard Shad, and Shad.

Finesse a-rig January 27, 2013
Reviewer: brandon from AZ United States  
Use this rig with 3-4" swimbaits for spots and smallies. Its compact size gets bit when full size rigs don't.
