I recently came across a product called Secret Weapon SpecTastic Recoil Cords. It's a small bungee cord that is attached between the weight and lure on a drop shot rig. The idea is that the stretchy little cord will allow you to impart more action to the soft plastic, without moving the weight. 

 

Seems like a neat idea. I personally wouldn't attach it directly to the hook, but splice in a piece of fluoro to make it less visible. So from the bottom up, it would be the weight, stretch cord, fluoro, then the hook attached to the main line. 

 

Has anyone tried this?

 

Thanks,

Josh

Nope.

 

Current is supposed to move the drop shot bait naturally.

 

Don' know if the bungee cord would do the same or interfere with the natural movement of the bait.

 

Take a whack at it and let us know what you think.


Ignorance can be corrected. Stupid lasts a lifetime.

I haven't personally tried this but I know when I'm fishing a drop shot rig less is more, and by less I mean less movement or action imparted on the bait. Like Sam said the current, even if it were miniscule, would generally impart all the action one would need to fish a drop shot rig effectively.

I agree with the posts above about the natural movement however I think the rig could be worth experimenting with. The traditional drop shot is a subtle presentation used to intice bites when more aggressive techniques don't work. Throwing creature baits or glide baits at a bedding bass however usually finds us trying to make a bait move or look a way that threatens the bass resulting in a strike. This is where I could see something like this being used on a drop shot or Carolina rig in an effort to create more movement possibly on a bait with more action than a traditional worm. The end result would probably be a new rig entirely and could be a cool idea. I say test it out and experiment and see what you find.
