One rod, one reel, one lure equal new bass tournament rules

If you're fishing the Bassmaster Classic this year or the Bassmaster Elite Series you'll have to do all your fish catching with just one lure.  And one rod and one reel.

Gone from the scene are the Alabama rigs, the single jig with five wire leaders leading to soft plastic baits that supposedly resemble a baitfish school.  Along the same lines, double topwater lures, umbrella rigs and drop shot rigs employing a jig as a weight all fall under the more than one lure category.

Remember, the rule change only applies to the Classic and the Elite Series competitions.  All the lesser events are still under the old rules.  Feeling they should be held to a higher and more professional standard the Elite Series competitors requested this rule change.
