The Dropshot Weight and the drop shot rig is a valuable tool that helps the seasoned or novice angler, in all waters, clear or stained, deep and or shallow, moving and or still catch more fish.
There are many drop shot rig variations, but they all have one thing in common — the bait rides above The Dropshot Weight.
The Dropshot Weight is the most important aspect of this style of fishing. In drop shot fishing, the weight is basically the anchor. It takes your bait into position and it keeps it there, but remains functionally inert if used properly.
Whether it’s a little 2” live minnow or a 8” soft plastic worm, whether the weight you use to get it in place is 1/16 oz or 1 oz, whether the line is 4 pound test or 14lb, the weight is sitting on bottom while you manipulate your bait of choice with the rod tip on a semi-slack line.
Not only does the weight not affect the way the lure moves in the water, there’s no weight between you and the hook to interfere with your sense of feel when a fish eats your presentation.
