Strike King KVD Perfect Plastics Dream Shot or Magnum Dream Shot Softbaits
great dropshot bait
These baits are perfect on a dropshot for both LM and SM. I caught a 7.5 lbder on these and he absolutely choked it, and that's just one of many nice bass I've caught on these. I prefer the dirt color but also use the green pumpkin and morning dawn and all three catch fish steadily for me. You cannot go wrong with these baits. Only issue is that they are not durable at all. they break sometimes after one or two fish but I would rather use baits that catch fish and break than ones that are durable and don't catch fish. Well worth your time I can assure you

Best For Drop Shot
This to me is the best bait for drop shot. It is the one I always choose when using that style. Well made and some of the best movement. Just make sure you leave the flat side down. This causes the bait to deflect the water properly on the fall which keeps it perpendicular to the line and also causes the most action on the short tugs.

When the fishing gets tough and my tried and true tackle just isn't doing it I go on the hunt for around 5 new lures I haven't used before that look pretty trustworthy and non-gimmicky. I'm a firm believer in "simple works best" and with this lure the proof of the pudding lies in the eating. Safe to say those bass ate it up but good.
I've always figured drop shoting to be a bit of an industry gimmick. I mean weights designed to easily disconnect from the line upon snagging but are designed to be dragged through the terrain? Come on. This doesn't take a genius to figure out.
That said, this bait in Green Pumpkin and Ghost Shad have just slayed the bass I threw them at. Fished them on 8lb fluorocarbon with a 10" between hook and weight on a 1/4 oz drop shot weight. They live up to the hype and put fish in the boat.
While drop shoting is among the LEAST economical ways to fish, especially considering the cost of bloody tungsten weights, it is a proven system and yields results. These baits outclass the alternatives by a mile.
You really can't go wrong.

Went fishing last week and when the bite stop these came in handy, really wasn't sure when i bought them but glad i decided to use them I shared them with my buddy and he was impressed. Worked great try to use the biggest hook your comfortable with for Drop-Shot and watch what happens.
