Bass Pro Shops® Drop Shot Worm
We designed our 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Motogp69 Best Drop Shot Worm? When it comes to soft plastics there is always a feeling out process trying to figure out how to best use them in the typical waters that I fish in Central Florida, but the Watermelon Drop Shot Worm allowed me to just have a good time without any feeling out process. If you are trying to work on your Drop Shot technique you might as well put on a soft plastic that is going to make the learning curve much smaller. My first day out with this soft plastic and my trusty drop shot set up led to one of my best bass days ever....and it happened over the Summer. For those of us that don't own boats you should realize how tough shore fishing is in Florida when the temperatures go way up, and I pulled in 6 bass in an hour with this set up. I can't wait to try this setup once season gets here, or I'm able to go out on my friends bass boat. My only issue was it seems there is a red eye missing on each of my baits, but perhaps since all of them are missing an eye they were supposed to be that way? Either way it didn't effect the fishing or results. October 18, 2010

A:nose hook the bait and work it slowly keeping the weight in contact with the bottom
A:I have had the best results by hooking it wacky style. I use a six inch trick worm type worm.
A:If you look on youtube you will find everything you need to know about a drop shot setup.
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.
Details:which color worls the best?
A:Black is the best color overall.
A:Any of the watermelon colors work great. I just purchased all of the kinds and just work each through the paces, and if I'm not getting bites I just switch color. More often than not bass love this rig so much it's just a matter of finding the right soft plastic. One day they wouldn't take this worm and I used a Fin S Texas Shad Minnow and I was back in fishing nirvana. It's the great thing about this rig is the ability to try so many different set ups quickly.
