Drop Shot For Brown Trout

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever use drop shots for trout, especially brown trout in rivers and streams?  I've had them hit small rapalas so I think a lifelike finesse technique like a dropshot with a juicy soft plastic would entice some large brown trout.

Not drop shot but have used a river rig.  Similar idea....

Drop shot really isnt ideal in the strong streams/creeks/rivers where browns typically are. You may have more success with it in deep slower holes. Give the gulp 2.5" minnow a try, trout love them in streams.

Getting hung up in rocks is certainly a concern.  Luckily a lot of weights can be popped off after getting snagged, but I may end up needing a couple bags of them...

 

Just trying to think of some new trout tactics.

Imsure that a drop shot rig would work for browns, especially in lakes.  I have never rigged a drop shot for browns but i use a 3 way swivel rig with a rapala. The set up is very similar though.
