Ryan McMurtury used a double super fluke rig to claim top honors at the ABA Bassmaster Weekend Series Championship on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville this past weekend. McMurtury’s win was worth $100,000 and a berth into the Bassmaster Classic.
McMurtury fished the double fluke rig in one area throughout the tournament. As the weather got worse, his fish got bigger. He caught 18 pounds 10 ounces on the final day to clinch the win.
“When I saw (bass) chasing the shad, I started fishing a single (Zoom Super) Fluke. When I’d catch one there’d usually be several more following it, so I put together a double Fluke rig and started catching them two at a time.” – Ryan McMurtury
McMurtury also noted that color was not a big issue. He started throwing white Super Flukes but as he ran out, he used other colors with the same effectiveness.
