personally, for as much drop shotting I do.. I CANT STAND drop shot weights. If you get them hung up at all it cuts your line and then your dropper gets shorter and shorter.. argh I find that frustrating. I just use water gremlin bull shot sinkers, they are a crimp on bullet shaped weight. I tie a very small over hand knot in the end of my line and it holds on quite well.

Check out the Mojo Pineapple ones. Long and skinny and don't grab onto much on the bottom.

I do use the Castaic Jerky J quite a bit, which is a minnow imitation. But I use the Mr. Twister drop shot worm(4" straight) and the OutKast Naughty Bug(sweet beaver) quite a bit as well.

Hiya -

Bull shot works fine. Personally I use Linker City Skinny Bakudan weights. Don't twist your line much and the clips don't cut your line either. I tried some cheap DS weights last summer - ended up tossing them all in the garbage for exactly the reason Deitz described - any little hang-up and they'd cut your line. Have to look at the line clip - if it comes to a perfect point (a v-shape) rather than a rounded point, they're bad news. The Lunker City ones don't cut line at all - even 6 lb Fluoro.

Really though - anything will work. Bullet weight, split shot, bell sinker...golf balls...rocks... smile

Cheers,

Rob Kimm
