Few presentations produce more bass in more places than the drop shot rig. That said, bass get conditioned to conventional rigging methods such as inline nose hooking and Texas rigging, and this is when California pro Cody Meyer switches things up.
Meyer shares details on the power of wacky rig drop shot rigging with sexy underwater video supporting his case from a fish’s eye view. Cody goes on to share his approach to leader length and tungsten weights, the optimal rod/reel/line setup and how to increase hooking percentages with the ‘reel set’ technique. Taken together, these pointers will keep you catching bass on heavily pressured waters and even behind other anglers.
