The above video clip walks you thru the “Supernova” that hit the Tennessee River Valley while I was on Kentucky Lake, for the 2011  FLW Outdoors Everstart Championship.   My practice partner, Troy Anderson, won the tournament on the Co-Angler side.  I blew up a lower unit on Day 2 and forfeited a month of practice and preparation.   I stayed after the tournament (got the lower unit fixed under warranty, thank you Yamaha) to spend some time throwing and exploring the Alabama Rig.   The Supernova continues, and who knows where it will take us and the universe of fishing.   Stay tuned for more, and updates around the Big Hammer and Retriever Rig Partnership, as we eluded to in the video clip.

Here is the gear we feature in our video clip, The Alabama Rig Supernova:

3″ Big Hammer Swimbait Tails

Big Hammer Jig Heads

The Retriever Rig

Basstrix Paddle Tailed Tubes

G-Loomis 966 & 965 BBR

Shimano Curado 300

Shimano Calcutta 400 TE

Power Pro Braided Line  (80#)

Big Hammer swimbait for the alabama retriever rig

    Runaway nuclear fusion fishing, great quote @12:45. Keep up the good work.

    • Casey, you were part of the cataclysm on Guntersville, and again on Kentucky Lake. Crazy how small the world of fishing can be, but also how big the universe of fishing can be. Looking forward to rocking out in 2012 with you.
