Guest Posted June 11, 2008 Report Share Posted June 11, 2008 I've been messing with this dropshot deal for a while and finally figured a few things out. It's all about shaking the bait. It's not about hooks or rigs, it's the shake retrieve that sets it apart . Some how I missed this, maybe it's obvious to everyone else. Using a flexible plastic bait helps. I started with the Findbass minnow nose hooked but sassy shads work just as good and they're cheaper. Small plastic worms should work good too. The bait is nose hooked and shook on loose line. This makes the plastic shake like a dying minnow. Try it in clear shallow water where you can see it. This is probably a still water technique and it will be great in eddies in the winter. It's been very effective in ponds along the weedline. Now that it's nice out I'm looking forward to winter fishing to try this out.
