OVERLOOKED Drop Shot Rigging and Fishing Tips

There’s so many factors contributing to a successful drop shot presentation, with leader length critical among them yet still overlooked and under-analyzed. Elite Series pro Gary Klein explains the importance of rate of fall, which is directly tied to drop shot weight, and lure fall duration – the time it takes for the lure to reach bottom after the weight does. Some days the fish like it short, others, a long fall gets more bites. Klein explains another interesting point pertaining to tungsten drop shot weight shine and fish triggering (you need to hear this).

As a general rule of thumb, a long leader is better fit for fishing in grass and when fish are more tentative (longer fall period), whereas a short leader is beneficial for fish keying in on bottom forage.

Realistic Fishing says:

good tip!

Sam Van Fishing says:

I really like the idea of the bait chasing the tungsten weight. Will definitely keep that in mind when fishing a drop shot.

Nick Cavazos says:

I love listening to Gary talk about techniques. Regardless what it is he us talking about he is thorough in covering the small things.alotnof people don’t realize or think about making just a tiny change can turn a bad day to a good one or a good one to a great one. I’m bad about just trying something different. I’m going to start making an effort to make small changes at a time weather it be color, weight etc….good video.

BassGeek says:

Awesome tip. Leader length is always a question mark with the drop shot for me.
