Drop shot rig

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Tactics -

Drop shot­ting is a fi­nesse lure fish­ing tac­tic where a soft plas­tic im­i­ta­tion bait is sus­pended above the bot­tom with a weight at­tached to the end of the line about 18in be­low the bait. Un­like other lure meth­ods, this al­lows you to keep the lure in one area as op­posed to reel­ing it back across the swim. This is ideal for tar­get­ing any fish-hold­ing struc­tures such as over­hang­ing bushes or moored boats. By gen­tly twitch­ing the rod tip you can make the bait quiver en­tic­ingly.
