Drop Shot Fishing With A Twist

If you’ve ever fished a drop shot rig, here’s a couple modifications that you can make that can help draw fish towards your rig.

It’s rigged with the lure tied above the weight so you can shake and twitch your lure while keeping it in the strike zone. The drop shot rig can be extremely effective at times.

It didn’t take long to realize, I had purchased these items because I had not thought through the reasons for making these purchases.
