I have done a search here on TFF in regards to the Berkley rules for the upcoming tournament.

All contestants must use Berkley and/or Sebile baits EXCLUSIVELY during this event.
• Spinner bait frames, jig heads, buzz bait frames, ect may be used only when broken down to terminal tackle where ALL skirts and plastics have been removed and replaced with ONLY BERKLEY PRODUCTS.
• All terminal tackle must include a “functional” full length Berkley skirt and/or Berkley soft plastic.

I know we are able to use Sebile products but what skirts are available? I saw back in 2012 someone on ebay had some, but if these are not generally available, ??? Do they sell them at the event? I would like to use a spinner bait and jigs, but I don't find ones on Tacklewarehouse?

Help me stay legal please!!! I don't want to be limited to plastics only.

I haven't read the rules
Google search for Sebile spinnerbait, Sebile pivot frog, and Sebile buzzbait to see the type of skirt materials available.

Lake Fork Marina will have a lot of old Berkley baits for sale. They have had some old jigs with skirts on them. You can remove the skirts and put them on your spinner baits. I was their a few days ago and they had some baits out for sale. Give them a call and see what they have.

They're coming out with a new line of hard baits designed by David fritts. They may be available during the tourney at some of the local shops. I just made my order actually.

Went to Allen Cabelas during lunch and lots of Berkley and Sebile discounted baits in the Bargin Cave. Check it out for those needing crankbait and jigs for tournament.

I have a bunch of stuff from last year.
we took jig skirts off & put them on spinner baits.
My kid cashed a check with a fish caught on a "clown" colored jig skirt spinnerbait.
the Berkley tent will have tons and tons of lures to be purchased.
