Drop shotting for bass has grown to be one of our most popular ways to use the sinkers. The drop shot sinkers are designed with a clip to easily attach the sinker to your line. Attach your hook to your line with a Palomar knot and leave at least 2 ft. of tag end (extra line). Thread the tag end of your line through the swivel of the sinker and pull it up tight into the wedge or “v” of the swivel to firmly attach it to your line, that’s it! If you get a snag that is impossible to get free the tension of the “V” on your line will cut the sinker off, but allow you to keep your hook and bait. Then easily attach another sinker.
What makes the sinkers so well equipped is it offers a gentle drop, get fewer snags and has a loud natural sound rolling on rocks. The gentle drop creates a flutter action as it sinks to the bottom and lands softly. This has turned out to be a very good way to catch shallow water bedding fish. Obviously, getting fewer snags is always a benefit and snags seems to be more prone when drop shot fishing because your sinker is constantly in contact with the bottom. The unique shape and low density of the sinker helps it to get fewer snags, so you can keep your bait in the water longer. This makes it perfect for using along rip rap banks that are known to hold fish, but can be difficult to fish. A great benefit that sets the sinker apart is the loud natural sound it creates when clicking against rock. The sound has a much higher tone than that created from other sinkers. It’s also a tone that is extremely recognizable to fish because it's very comparable to that of crawdads moving over and foraging rocks, which means feeding time! Good luck fishing and if you have any questions please let us know.
Very comparable to tying a fly or making a lure, it takes time, good equipment, the best material and attention to detail to craft each sinker. Each piece is Made in the USA and passes through about six different hands until the final piece is packed into the bag. The result is the absolute best sinker for a natural presentation!
