Picasso V Rig
The Picasso V-Rig is an alternative to the standard umbrella rigs with an appearance and application more like a spinnerbait. The V Rig is quite versatile, allowing anglers to fish from shallow to deep simply by changing the size of their jigs heads. The V Rig is constructed using a more subtle wire - it's low vis, yet still extremely strong. The wire gauge enables fishermen to retrieve the baits at any speed and still keep it running true. As you can see in the images above, the V-Rig utilizes small willow leaf spinnerbait blades to add additional attraction. The size #3 blades come in 24k gold or bright nickel finishes that don't overpower the rig - instead they work in unison with the attached swimbaits to imitate a school of shad.
The key to properly rigging the V-Rig is to use equally weighted jig heads, whether they are light or heavy will determine the sink rate and what depth the lure is best fished at. The lighter the jig heads are more suitable for shallow water fishing - anglers can make the V-Rig operate in exactly the same way a spinnerbait would by keeping the weight of their jig heads low so the lure can be retrieved slowly around shallow water cover.The single V-wire allows this rig to drop very fast, so getting deep in a hurry and staying deep is not a problem with heavier jig heads.
The Picasso V-Rig is available with nickel or gold blades - in V4, V6, and V8 configurations.
