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

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
