    I’ve seen the drop-shot technique mentioned here recently. I’ve never used it, and I’m wondering how to fish this way if anyone has some advice. Assuming it is straight down from the side of the boat over brush piles, what is the advantage of this vs. a traditional tight line with a weight above the hook?

    The biggest thing for me is being able to keep it in the strike zone much longer..I like to fish it 20-30 ft around brush, stumps, ledges…anywhere I find fish holding on structure..I like to see shad also..a good medium action rod is best…u can’t horse em n…that lil hook will tear out if it’s a good fish…i use vmc spin shot no. 2 hook with 1/4 oz tungsten weight…I use 6-8 lb test fluorocarbon on a smooth drag..really like zooms original z3 worm in morning dawn or prism shad….If u got a good depthfinders it shouldn’t take long to have some really good success…hope this helps..

    I see fish down at 30 feet a lot on my finder at PP. I always wonder if they are bass. I need to try the drop shot! Sounds like that is the way to get to them.

    Drop-shotting is something I want to do more of than I have in the past. I just bought 5/8 ounce Drop shots so I can try bigger finesse worms on the community holes. Hopefully this different technique will catch some of the fish that don’t bite the everyday lures.
