Rigging a drop-shot: advantages and disadvantages
This snap-in is used when fishing with a spinning rod. In this embodiment, no special equipment. Dropchot almost always guarantee a good catch, even in those moments when predatory fish do not show any activity.
In this gear there are 4 elements:
- Bait made of silicone.
To the main fishing line is attached to the hook with bait, is fastened to the end of the load. Distance from the sinker end of the fishing line can be changed. This gives you the opportunity of fishing at different depths. The Texas version of snap is effective among the various obstacles, allowing to fish even in dense thickets of plants or between a large number of snags. This rig is perfect for fishermen who constantly pluck the hooks due to various obstacles. This is the main secret of the big catch when using this snap, because predators are almost always hiding in hard to reach places.
The principle of operation
Dropshot is fishing from a boat in a plumb, or casts in the far distance. The sinker is made in the form of a torpedo, which is on the bottom, the bait is constantly in motion, with the trajectory down and up, it all depends on the movement of the rod. For example, if fishing is directed at walleye, the bait must be several times slightly to hit the bottom, then return to the starting position. Shipped in the form of a cylinder sinks to the bottom, the bait begins to play. At this point the fish are starting to bite.
When fishing with long balls, you need to make more distance from the sinker to the bait. The best results snap dropchot give when fishing in a vertical position, slightly worse result will be at 45 degree inclination. If on the river a strong current, and need to hang additional weights, otherwise snap will just wash away to the side. There are several types of liner that are used with this equipment:
- Transaction in which the bait touches the bottom.
- The transaction with great speed.
- For demolition.
Posting with great speed helps to quickly find where the hiding fish. Once the bait is thrown and sinker reached the bottom, need to do a few short spurts, after wait a few seconds and repeat the process, usually, the predator immediately begins to bite.
Ideal results shows wiring with touch, it is much slower. Once the bait is abandoned, is not more than 4 jerks, then the line should be relaxed to the bait lay on the bottom. As a rule, while the bait drops, start biting.
Broach is designed to find out what the bottom topography of this pond. Casting is a simple and slow stretching, the sinker should always slide on the bottom. In the middle should be a small pause, then continue. Broach with the demolition of virtually no different, just applied during strong currents.
The pros and cons
This snap-in is considered to be universal. To fish with her almost everywhere, even if the current is strong or in the water a lot of plants. In places where it is almost impossible to use a jig, dropchot works just perfect, due to the vertical loading. It does not matter and the depth of the reservoir. In addition, with the help of this snap pretty easy to lure the fish, which is going a little above the bottom, you can adjust the depth of 1 meter. Play bait a lot easier than with other snap-ins.
Of the minuses can be noted that the snap-in you need to keep in the correct position, it is not suitable for fishing at average depths and for long casts.
