The Castaic Baits Umbrella Rig is a great tool that helps anglers catch more bass. When bass school offshore, they often form in groups of hundreds of fish. Being the opportunistic predators they are, bass will attack schools of shad, and the umbrella rig looks just like a school of shad. During testing it was very common to catch multiple bass on one cast.
Professional bass angler Paul Elias used an Umbrella-rig to run away with the win at the October 2011 Lake Guntersville FLW Tour Open. (The entire top-5 actually used Umbrella-rig as well). Dan Morehead also used the Umbrella-rig to win at the Kentucky Lake EverStart Series Championship, as did Scott Brummett at the Bass Fishing League Wheeler Lake Regional.
