Drop shot

bass fishing drop shot

Straight-shank hooks also work well on drop shots when rigging a soft plastic weedless. A light-wire EWG hook has been a favorite for many anglers over the years when rigging a drop shot this way. Advancements in recent years of the quality and size range of straight-shank hooks have created some great options for drop shotting, like Gamakatsu’s G-Finesse Worm Hook with Tin Keeper, for instance.
