Z Man Fishing Products - The Drop Shot Rig

One of the most consistent fish catching rigs is the Drop Shot Rig. One of my favorite presentations for the Drop Shot Rig is the brand new bait Z-Man Trick ShotZ. Traditionally the way to rig this is with a nose hook it. But a better way to rig it to make it a little more weedless and more realistic is still to nose hook it, but take the Drop Shot hook and go under the chin of the Trick ShotZ and bring the hook to where you can just barely feel the hook. That will create a more horizontal presentation and all you to catch more fish.
