The Drop-Shot Rig is a ready-made rig to get you started straight away. Simply connect to the main line and off you go. The Japanese hook is extra hardened, ultra sharp and robust. In addition, abrasion-resistant fluorocarbon and a fast-sinking and environmentally friendly tungsten weight were used. Each piece is handcrafted to ensure high quality knots.
With the drop-shot assembly, the shad hangs vertically on the leader and imitates small prey fish. The most important thing with this fishing technique is the feeling for the right bait. The plucking movements should be very short and smooth. Furthermore, it is advisable to keep stopping the bait for 5-10 seconds, because the predatory fish often feel provoked and grab it at this very moment. If there are no bites after a while, the drop-shot assembly and lead are tightened a few meters and the whole thing repeated.
You can see the movements for a successful catch in the illustration. Have fun!
