The Pro Series Drop Shot Panfish Rig is designed for use with either premium panfish plastics or live bait. The super sharp hooks are free to spin on the main line, while the bead holds the hook at just the perfect angle for optimum upper lip hook sets. All you need to do is add your favorite soft plastic or live bait and a small bell sinker. Then you are free to jiggle, shake or thump it on the bottom for your favorite panfish.
These rigs also fish fantastic on a slip bobber rig, suspended off the bottom. The secret behind these rigs success is that you can impart subtle action to the baits and as soon as the fish touches it, you instantly feel it through the main line. It is also very difficult for fish to swallow the hook, making live release more frequent. Traditional crappie or perch rigs with 3-6" droppers or snelled hooks dilute your action and the subtle pressure of your finicky quarry.
Please note hooks used are Eagle Claw #4 Red Aberdeen, NOT red Matzuo sickles shown in Pics.
The Drop Shot Panfish Rig eliminates those problems!
