Damiki 4" Pen For Dropshot?

Recommended Posts

Picked up a bag of these in a lot of assorted tackle. They look like an absolutely killer bait for a Dropshot,which is what I think they were intended for.

I rigged up a dropshot rig with some line I had laying around the house,and tried it out in my 55 gal Aquarium.

Im not digging the action. If tension isnt kept on the line,the bait sinks like a rock with no action. Also when I keep the line tight and work it like I would my rod in the boat out on the lake,I gotta say the action appears pretty unfavorable.

I like the bait,but other than a Dropshot,what could a 4" Straight tail(sinking) worm be used for with success?

Anyone else ever used this bait on a Dropshot with success?

Have you tried them out on live fish yet? What I mean is, just go and fish them. No action, sinking straight tail worms are a staple drop shot bait. Quit over analyzing, and go fish them. Take pics!

Ya know your right. Its strange how things are. Something that isnt appealing or natural looking to our eye,maybe totally tantalizing to the fish. Take for instance a old Creme Scoundrel worm,Straight tail,nothing fancy. Ive heard of putting a "kink" in the bait so that upon retrieval,it spins and rolls in the water a bit. Looks totally stupid to me,but according to old timers this totally works.

One of my favorite drop shot baits is a GYCB Shad Shaped Worm. It's a fast sinking, no action, little green turd. Bass love the stupid things!

I am fishing a bait called the Reins Bubbling Shaker for my dropshot and it looks very similar to the Damiki Pen.
