    Why Boo??? If it catches fish, why not? We are not using cane poles and string anymore. Well i'm not anyway. I just don't understand why its such a big deal. Its been a way of fishing for years. Friend of mine used umbrella rigs for stripers for years.

    To me there is no difference in the Arig and trolling or live bait. Should be banned from all tournaments.

    Personally I won't use it regardless. I find it completely immoral and takes all or any skill completely out of the equation.

    I remember when the LCD fish finders came out. They were going to be the end of fishing...total unfairness....ban them ban them. LOL. No matter how you look at it that thing is a artificial lure that you cast and retrieve on rod & reel.

    i throw it and it will wear your arm out. I have only caught two fish on it. But I did lose one last week on it. Just remember it will hook everything under water. rocks, moss,tress, weeds, oooo and some fish. lol

    The thing is you still have to throw it in areas where fish are....that is the main difference between good fisherman and most everybody else...they can locate WHERE the fish are!!!

    I fished this thing on KY lake back in January and had a blast and came home with bleeding thumbs. It will wear you out thats for sure. I used 1/8 ounce light wire jig heads with 5.5" Strike King Shadilious swim baits super glued to the heads.
