Bass Pro Shops Drop Shot Worm
We designed our Bass Pro Shops® Drop Shot Worm with deep water drop shottin' in mind. This enticing split-tail dandy is a dead ringer for a small baitfish and will draw strikes from a variety of fish. The Drop Shot Worm sports small eyes for a lifelike appearance, and its large, extra-fat head makes hook placement easy. Infused with salt and 8up scent.

The easiest way is to measure out the length of left over you want as a trailer for the drop shot weight. Make a palomar knot with the hook. Run the extra back through the eye of the hook one more time and then cinch your drop shot weight on any where from 8 - 15 inches down from the hook.
It is typically best to hook the worm or minnow very close to the head of the bait to allow it the best action. Just run the hook straight through the top of the head.
Fishing the drop shot rig is easy. Just remember to not twitch it as you move it, and once you have it in place keep the line tight and twitch it for about 5 seconds before moving it again...always keep a tight line, unless in areas where you can sight fish and can allow the weight to drop to the bottom and then pull it back up again.
