Drop Shotting


Drop shotting works great for walleye, although, most walleye anglers never consider using a drop shot rig to fish for them.  Drop shot rigs will get your bait or soft plastics down to the bottom like a jighead, but this rig will keep your baits just off the bottom. When walleye are in a feeding mood, the drop shot rig works great.  There are times that walleye are inactive and a jighead will get more strikes because it gets the bait right on the bottom where many inactive walleye rest, but you can definitely use the drop shot rig and catch plenty of walleye.  At times, it may even work better than a jighead so you just have to try it out to see what is going to work best on any given day.
