Drop Shot the Banks and improve gear

Recommended Posts

Want to try and to some drop shot from the banks. Dont know if this will work but some of the banks i fish are kinda steep so i figure it would be a good idea to try. i have an 6'6" ugly stick with 15lb braid and a 10lb FC leader as well as a cabelas 6'6" medium rod with 10lb FC. will those work. they dont seem to be that sensitive of a rod for that kind of fishing. i mostly fish a ned rig, wacky or weightless texas rig. im also looking for a little more sensitive rod to possibly replace the cabelas one.  when i get hit i dont know anyting is one until i give it a twitch and there she is.

Check out Fox River Lures and Rods.  They are local and great.  Price point is around $100.  They have a pretty big local following.

Regarding your technique of, “when i get hit i dont know anyting is one until i give it a twitch and there she is,” there is not a thing wrong with that, sir.  Most often it seems like my strikes come on the initial fall.  Drop shotting works as well from the bank as any other lure or presentation.  Most of those pond fish have seen a worm fall straight past them to the bottom but with a dropshot, it stops right in front of them and they have got to eat it!
