Smallmouth Bass Fishing with the Drop Shot Rig

The drop shot rig is deadly effective on smallmouth bass. This simple rig involves using a weight on the bottom and a drop shot or octopus style hook tied directly to the leader about 12 inches above the weight. A host of soft plastics work great on this rig which can be casted or fished vertical in deeper water.
