Shield-lake dropshot

Recommended Posts

I have been focusing more on drop-shot for big, finicky smallmouth. I am wondering what other folks that might be fishing shield-lakes are using for drop-shot baits. I have been using 4" senkos and small trick worms with some success. Anything else I should try?

I'm gonna be trying a 3" YUM money minnow this weekend...looks ultra natural and has a very nice finesse action. Hopefully will have a report to post on it :D

Will the LLJ be in this report???????????????????????????????????????? ;)

 

 

3 1/2 FinS minnow or 3 1/2 Gulp minnow

 

 

... a semi-realistic minnow bait on a drop-shot rig???... whod'a ever thunk it???... now all we have to determine is what color?... white?... shad... chartreuse... or pink????

 

 

... has anyone ever thought of using a live minnow on a drop shot rig? :rolleyes:

Yep, 30 plus years ago. Then when I was 7, I stopped using bait, and started fishing like a man. :P

I'll try to snap a pic of her sitting down to a delicious dinner of fried fish....she's not ready to leave her precious baby behind, nor is she willing to let me bundle the little munchkin up and take her with us. :rolleyes:

the baits you are using are good. stirke zone slammers work great too ;) . i usually use a longer lead between the hook and my bait up to 4 ft . if drop shot doesnt work try shaky head with the same worms
