Bubba Shot Swimbait?

Recommended Posts

I want to add a large soft plastic swimbait on the Bubba Shot and wanted to fish it deep on Douglas Lake with a vertical presentation.

Can you recommend a soft plastic swimbait(that doesn't break the bank) to put on my beefier drop shot rig?

I don't want it to float too high or sink too low.  I was thinking giving the magnum fluke a try, but I don't want to buy a bunch of baits to have them not work.  

Have you guys tried this before?

The reason for doing the Bubba Drop shot instead of fishing a regular swimbait set up is because I wanted a more vertical presentation.  

Does anyone see any problems with attempting this technique?  I was going to go with something like 40lb braid with a 8 or 10lb fluoro leader.

You can drop shot anything - it's a terminal rig, not a style.  I know quite a few that have been drop shotting smaller Keitechs, so I don't see why a big one wouldn't work.

There's some guy who fishes what he calls a "swim shot" in the midwest, I think he had a blog or something that I stumbed across. I've seen him use a mattlures hardgill on a drop shot rig, so anything is possible.

Keitech would also be my reccomendation

3x for keitech. I imagine that paddle tail would give you great action.

Reminds me of the old "pink buzzbait on a drop shot" joke. 

If it works...:P

Keitechs are good baits as are the lake fort tackle magic shad

I use 17lb fluoro for leader, a gammy 5/0 super line EWG, 3/8oz lead, and a 7" magnum Fluke. It's good for flipping docks and deep structure.
