A Drop shot rig is used to target fish holding in deeper water (typically with soft plastic baits) where the hook is tied or crimped directly (in-line) above a sinker.
Why Drop shot?
– Pin-Point targeting of deep-water fish on structure.
– Holding baits in front of finicky fish.
– Take advantage of a soft-plastic bait uninhibited by a jig head and still fish in deep water.
