While working the banks of a small river yesterday, (Mothers Day project), I happen to meet a fisherman on the other bank, his lack of small talk prevented me from questions on his rig. While he did say he was fishing 'Northerns casting I see 1. large pencil type bobber above what appeared to be four large almost florescent worms but the way they were suspended out and stayed untangled was strange. I have seen ice fishing drop a line with hooks/bait in a squared pattern of multiples, but not a large as this guy was using.
Heck, I can't find images in Google so I thought I would ask here. Also, the way he cast it held as if casting nets for bait, just a neat thing to see.


no man is closer to the beginning of all things than when he is familiar with a marsh.

Maybe a sal*censored*er octopus or squid type lure. I"'ve seen some wild ones.


Yes, caramel corn is a veggie.

Someone mentioned Alabama rig, don't know if it is a different thing but what you describe sounds like an umbrella rig.

Alabama/Umbrella rigs....I was under the impression they are not legal in Iowa.

You would have to remove enough good to bring total hooks down to 2. Many systems restrict Alabama style rigs.

I googled images and that rig you said sure looked like it
He knew how to use that too -casting out into the bend of the river, cranking against current and casting again, real interesting to see

They are legal just as long as it only has one hook on it. I use one that has the middle swim bait with a hook as the longest wire and then 4 shorter wires with spin blades on them so it looks like a school.

And , if you buy the license for an extra rod/ lure, you can run three.

The third line is exactly that, a third line. You are still limited to 2 hooks per line. Very specific in regs. As is umbrella rigs are expressly prohibited.
