Striped Bass Umbrella Rig

(2 customer reviews)


Capt Mack’s striped bass umbrella rigs are perfect for catching fish, both shallow and deep, especially when game fish are focused on bait fish schools. These rigs can be trolled super deep or very shallow giving you total coverage of the entire water column by using different weight rigs, weights, and jigs. These rigs also come with a depth chart explaining how to achieve different depths with your rigs by adjusting boat speed and distance behind the boat.

They are great for catching striped bass, hybrids, spotted bass and largemouth bass. They are highly effective in saltwater for Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Redfish, Rockfish and more.

This umbrella rig is ready to fish!

This is a great tool to locate fish and an excellent tool for spotted bass, stripers, Rockfish, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, and other game-fish. There is a wide range of connection points to create a simulated underwater school of bait-fish. Each Umbrella rig comes with a depth chart to ensure you are fishing the depths that you want. This rig can quickly turn a bad day into a productive day on the water!

Captain Mack’s Umbrella Rigs can be fished in depths of 1 – 25 feet when flat-lined or used at any depth behind a down-rigger.

For each additional ounce of lead you place on the Striped Bass Umbrella Rig, you can expect it to run approximately 2 feet deeper. To increase the weight, use heavier jigs and place additional jigs on each of the inner loops, or place egg sinkers on the line above the umbrella rig.

Depth control is the key to maximizing your results. The depth chart on the back of the pre-rigged Striped Bass Umbrella Rig header card will allow you to place the rig within a foot of the desired depth. Please keep in mind that any alterations such as: (line size, jig weight, boat speed, and wind speed and direction) can dramatically effect the depth of the rig(s).



An umbrella rig is one of the most effective ‘search tools’ you can have in your tackle box. A fully rigged umbrella rig simulates a school of bait fish that any underwater predator cannot resist.

    I am a striper guide on Lake Texoma, and years ago, a lot of guides, as well as “weekenders” used this method, with good results. Most guides used live bait, although artificial seem to catch the bigger fish. With all the increment weather this year, and because of the loss of our live bait, shad, most guides have gone to artificial. I became friends with a church member, who was using the umbrella rig from Captain Mack, got me using it again, and the results have been phenomenal. It definitely works, and I catch fish with them, big fish, and it saved my business which was suffered from not catching much fish. I have tried several other rigs, but not with the success as Captain Macks. If you do not like to catch fish, do not use this method, as the fish seem to see it as a school of food, and attack it. It has renewed my confidence in catching fish, and although I have just started using it, I feel I can rely on it all season. Some guides will refuse to use this as it involves trolling, but they will watch me, catch fish after fish, in front of them, so if you going to fish, use the best method out there. Instructions on the package, take out all the guess work, telling how to use it, at different depths. No better rig out there, as far as I am concerned.
