Drop shot rig is a popular fishing technique widely used by not only freshwater bass fishermen, but also saltwater anglers. A drop shot rig is that your fishing line running down with the drop shot hook tied like you normally would, but then you’ll run a leader from that with a small weight on the end, that allows the fishing bait to be suspended in the water column right where fish can easily see it. This finesse technique is highly successful in the pressured lakes.
How to fish a drop shot rig?
Dragging: Cast your fishing line into water and let the weight sink to the bottom. Once it hits bottom, simply retrieve it fast enough to drag the weight across the base of the water. By utilizing this method, you can cover more water and still get the chance to attract a monster bass.
Deadsticking: Wait a few seconds and you will feel a slight pull on your line when the weight hits the lake bottom. Then to slowly lift it off the bottom and let it fall back down again. Repeat this process and retrieve your reel at the same time. This is an excellent way to use when you know where the bass are.
