Good on ya, Shamoo. your post inspired me to hit the lake today for a little dropshot action, too. Unfortunately, the beasts didn't want to play.

Oh, we'll... Glad to see a Basshole having luck. Go get 'em, bud!

Shamoo- man, I went back out on Sunday and dropshotted my tail off. I adjusted the tag length, tried different weights, hooks and baits. I even tried oldfart's Bubba Shot. No luck other than a skinny little critter on a wacky hooked Flick Shake.

I again congratulate you on your DS success. One of these days this short amphibian will have a little DS luck, too.

Thanks again Mr. Toad, The length from my hook to the weight is 22", I use a 1/8 round drop-shot weight, a #1 Gamakatsu split shot/drop shot hook, either a Robo 4.5" straight tail worm or a Power Team Lure 5" Finicky Tickler, The water I fish is shallow and weedy, Keep at it my friend, never give up. I'll cast out, let it set than shake the rod, i'll than put my rod tip around 10 Oclock, reel in the slack and pull the weight through the weeds with the rod using short upward tugs(pops) till I get to 12, than i start over again at 10. When the weight gets snagged I'll shake the bait, than pop it loose and weight for the next snag, than shake bait again. Go gettem Toad
