How to Drop Shot, tips and techniques for big bass!
In this video I go over some tips and techniques you can start to use to help improve your Drop Shotting game and put some big bass in the boat. I love to Drop Shot and it is one of my favorite ways to fish. Drop Shotting is so versatile and can be used in so many ways. From shallow bass fishing all the way out to 60 plus feet of water. I fish a drop shot often and I am always trying to find a way to incorporate that technique into a certain situation. The hook up ratio is great with a drop shot, you can use many different types of baits and soft plastics, you can mimic baitfish, gobys and crayfish easily with the drop shot. This video has some shots of the baits I use underwater so you can see what they look like when being drop shotted and I go over a few time tested soft plastics that I carry with me whenever I am going to be drop shotting.
Let me know what types of baits, rods, reels and line you like to use when you are drop shotting. I would love to hear about it in the comment section!

Travis Manson’s Guided Bass Fishing Trips
Who is SmallmouthCrush?
Travis Manson was born and raised where the giant Smallmouth Bass of the north live…WISCONSIN. He started fishing from the bank as at a young age and spent most of his childhood with a rod in his hand. Travis is primarily a self-taught angler that is always learning and experiencing this amazing sport of fishing. He started out fishing for walleyes and fishing in local walleye tournaments, but then in his mid 20’s, he caught the BASS BUG and has been hooked every since. He competed at the highest level in bass fishing on the Bassmaster Elite series for a number of years, until he ran out of $$ money $$. This led to a move across the country to the Northeast where he got things right again and is back on track, but now on his own terms. Perhaps he will make another run at the Elite Series if the opportunity allows. In the meantime, he is a fishing guide offering trips on the Chesapeake Bay for largemouth bass(year round), guided trips for smallmouth back in Wisconsin (during select times) and trophy smallmouth bass guided trips in Upstate New York (May-November) His Youtube Channel is named after his passion for the smallmouth bass and will be used as a platform for “how-to” videos, on the water instruction, crazy on and off the water topics and vlogs on the day in the life of a fishing addict! Hope you enjoy!
