    well, shake it quite a bit in early summer and the let it sit, and then i will pick it up slowly and drag it by lifting my rod tip, then i will drop it again and then i will quiver it, re

    @2004yamahar6 I normally shake the drop shot a bit less than the video, but I do shake it like that at times. Bass will move to the bait from the sound and sight of the dropshot rig bring shaken. Try to change from time to time and find what the bass like that day.

    I notice you shake the pole quite a bit. Is that a pretty normal practice? I have heard of barely moving, to moving it like you do. I jave been skunked alot from barely moving the tip and I am wondering if that is why.

    @NGUdOlLoFf shamono spinning reel

  14. exbassguide says:

    @NGUdOlLoFf I use Daiwa’s Team Daiwa Tierra Spinning rod, Model # TDTR 602MHFS, it is med heavy and has a fast tip. It is 6 foot 6 inches and it really fits my fishing style.
    THANK! Roger

    caught 3-4lb smallies on this rig with trigger x minnow

  16. NGUdOlLoFf says:

    what are you using for a rod and reel in this and what is the action and taper on the rod?

  17. echo1er says:

    @echo1er keep up the videos. Do you use any bait casters.

  18. exbassguide says:

    @echo1er I havse a canon camera, it is a powershot A11001S.
    Thanks Roger

  19. echo1er says:

    Nice clear video what are you shooting with.

  20. exbassguide says:

    @agentYJGP It works fantastic for summer smallies and it works good for l. m. bass in the summer! fish current seams and points for smallmouth. Fish pilings and docks for l.m. bass.

  21. agentYJGP says:

    does this work for summertime bass and for smallies?

  22. HATINTHEKAT says:

    good videos man, good tips, pretty thorough, not rushed and missing stuff, what are some other good plastics to put on a drop shot? could you even use a live nightcrawler?

  23. MegaLuisVEVO says:

    man dude that caught me some fish thank u

  24. exbassguide says:

    @devilstix411 Fish under the dock and try a three inch senko. there is less weeds under the docks.

  25. devilstix411 says:

    hey im fishing lake geneva off of the pier and im using a 5 inch small bass color worm and over there there are alot of weeds so i fish it with a texas rig drop shot. I can not seem to catch any fish even though im fishing very close to shade. I use a 2/0 hook, red, and with a 1/4 round weight. My technique is like yours but i dont seem to attract any fish. can you please tell me what is wrong. thank you.

  26. 82brummy says:

  27. GreatLakesBassdotcom says:
