Drop shot master and Elite Series pro John Murray thinks a lot of anglers overlook the effectiveness of the drop shot in and around heavy cover, and that’s a big mistake. Precision depth control and the ability to work the lure in place make it highly effective around stumps, docks, laydowns and other juicy bass-holding cover. John walks us through his upsized rod, reel, line and plastic for heavy drop shotting (Bubba Shot). This Gene Larew 8” TattleTail Worm rigged Bubba Shot was a key presentation that helped lead him to a win during the 2017 Elite Series Event on Toledo Bend. Let the underwater video of this cool plastic do the talking, and put this effective system to work on your waters.
