Drop Shot Fishing

Post by tootall on Tue May 25, 2010 7:16 am

Anyone tried this method for big perch?

Looks like it could be devastating...

sea fishing style rig, that one.

Used with multiple boomed hooks and ragworm. Does the business off the harbour walls.

It's a good rig worth trying though, I like it at sea and see why it wouldn't work on a river.

Edd right its a sea fishing rig but they have used it a lot in the states for Bass. Its used all over the place i have seen it used for zander and sea species such as bass and even pollack and cod. So yes it should work well especially off of bridges and places where you know Perch could be hanging out

Heres a question - why the strangely shaped attachment point on top of the weights?

Could i not just use say a 1/2 oz square pear lead for example?

I understand they are made like that so the fishing line slides up the fine wire point of the loop. The point pinches the fishing line and holds the lead in place without a knot that way if it gets snaged it pulls free just us a normal ball or pair lead and put a few over hand knots above it

not familiar with it so i looked it up, and i think either that or the kevlar stuff would work Wink

Cheers lads. Popped by the shop on the way home and bought a few bits to try this out - some little rubber grubs and these little 10cm shads by savage gear:
