What's your favorite drop shot bait?

Recommended Posts

Just picked up some ZOOM Meatheads to try for dropshotting.  What do you guys like to use?  (besides senkos, ha ha)

roboworm's straight tails are awesome, and like my friend Basspro48 said their FX series are cool too.  i like the ayu and transparent flake/shad colors. ;)

I like zoom finesse worms, the smaller zoom flukes and super flukes, yum crawbugs, 3" yum dingers, 3" "paddle tail grubs, and I like to use live bait on a drop shot too............small craws, 3"-4" shiners, and good old night crawlers.

I use many baits varing the size. Over here in Washington we have Sniper Baits. They work great both the bolts and snubs. I use these when I really want to  go small in tough conditions. When I'm nailing them and want a kicker fish I tend to lean towards either a Reaction Innovations Samllie Beaver and their Flirt Worm. These are what's at the top of my list when it comes to drop shotting. I also love the 4 1/2" Robo Wenie Worm in the FX series. My favorite color is Peoples Choice.

I don't use the dropshot a lot but, when I do, mostly in gin clear deep water like Deep Creek Lake in Maryland, I use a Zoom Finese in smoke-blue flake or a 6" watermelon or green pumpkin straight tail pencil worm made by Wasp. I have had a lot of luck on both. I use them on a 6'6" M or ML rod and 6-8# test. This set up has worked well for me on the channel drops and at the end of points in those gin clear lakes. Good luck.

I have not drop shotted a lot either, but, the only thing that worked for me was the 4" turtle back worm in black by gulp.  It is as close to a live leach as I could find.
