Drop Shot : Favorite Z-Man Soft Plastics ?

Recommended Posts

I am of the opinion that less action to drop shot baits in cold water is better - thus Z-Man soft plastics allow one to hold a neutral or vertical buoyancy without over working the bait . Examples for cold water drop shot from Z-Man would be : 4" Finesse Wormz , 3.75" Streakz Fluke &  3.5" Trick Shotz ... When warmer water is the norm and you want to work a bait more / impart constant action - then I will use Strike King , Zoom , etc. "normal" soft plastic composition drop shot soft plastics  . However for cold water the Z-Man Elaztech material is hard to beat to achieve a life like profile without over working your soft plastics ... Your thoughts and experience with drop shot soft plastics for cold water ?

I personally have liked the new TRD MinnowZ the best for a drop shot. The profile is really nice and it just seems to catch them better for me than the Trick ShotZ. It doesn't hurt that it can pull double duty as a Ned rig bait.

I’ve had good luck with the finesse shadz,finesse worm,and the fatty z worm.

90% of the time I have a ShadZ on my drop shot. I use it in both warm and cold water.

*Good suggestion - I've not tried the TRD MinnowZ before !

Mmmm I have not tried a Z man plastic on a dropshot... but seems like a hula stick might also be a fair option. The way the tail is will impart some secondary natural action without even hardly doing anything.
