Also asked, what line do you use for Alabama rig?

Proper fishing line for the rig is equally important as the proper rod. I use the new XPS Advanced Braided line from Bass Pro Shops. This line is the smoothest-casting braid I have used. I tend to use two different size lines -- 50-lb and 80-lb line, and nothing smaller.

Secondly, what states are Alabama rigs illegal? States in which an Alabama rig with three hooks or more is considered illegal include New Hampshire, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Massachusetts, Nevada, Vermont and Maryland.

Also question is, what is an Alabama rig?

The Alabama rig is not a lure, but a device that allows an angler to deliver multiple lures on a single cast. The "Alabama rig" devised by Andy Poss and sold at TheAlabamaRig.com is simply a castable "umbrella" rig.

What is the best umbrella rig?

If you're fishing a really big or heavy umbrella rig, a 300-size casting reel designed for heavy-duty use might be best, but a standard bass reel is just fine for most purposes. A 6:1 or 7:1 gear ratio will get the job done. For baits, almost any swimbait will work, and small fluke-style baits can be good too.
