  1. Gene, thanks to you, i not only had my best morning on the water, but i got my PB then beat that and got a 6.5lb with a drop shot.I live in Vancouver Washington, across the river from Portland, local lake isn't known for huge bass. I had all top water tied up the night before, then ran across this video. Decided to tie up a drop shot on my wife's rod. Never tried a drop shot, never see anyone use it at my lake. I fish the bank only, no boat and lucky if i land one in a day. Got there at before sunrise, threw a buzz, then a whopper plopper, a frog, then i tossed a swim jig, before i could close the bail my line was running. Pulled up a little 2 pounder. Then for about 30 minutes nothing was going on, lost my swim jig. Tossed a Texas rig, nibbles but no full bites. Then i decided to try the drop shot. I tied a straight shank with the worm lock to go weedless. Put a 4" yum dinger on with a 1/4 skinny weight. I COULD NOT KEEP THEM OFF MY HOOK. for about a full hour i was nailing them over and over. Then about 730am they quit committing and the temp was getting a little high almost 90. I was still getting bites but they were short striking. By far the best day fishing today, and i have you to thank for it! Might even call in to work tomorrow, use up some pto and hit the lake again πŸ˜‚. It's supposed to be 115Β° tomorrow, so early morning should be good. If you ever come up my way I'd love to fish with you. Best YouTube fisherman by far.

  2. Thank you! Great video on fishing a drop shot rig. You really make things simple and easy to understand. Any tips on how to tie a fluorocarbon leader onto braided line?

  3. Great advice! Thanks for reminding people to moisten the knot before pulling it tight, people nowadays think that this is old school. I'm 55 years old and because of my Grandpa's tip, almost never lost a lunker. Today, however, early in the morning at sunrise, I lost a 3 1/2 foot pike because I didn't set my drag right and instead of letting him wear himself out, after a 10 minute back and forth battle, I tried to bring him to shore. Fat chance! This old timer let me know how he got that big, making a last minute dash and snapped the line a couple of yards away from victory 😒

  4. Hey any tips for not getting snagged up on the drop shot every cast? Its always the weight that gets caught on something. I’m very new to the drop shot setup and I can’t seem to find the sweet spot for it yet
