A drop-shot rig makes an excellent presentation during those hot dog days of summer. A drop-shot rig generally consists of a small hook tied about 12 to 36 inches above a weight. On the hook, tie a soft plastic grub, finesse worm or similar bait. Most anglers fish a drop-shot rig with a vertical presentation around deep humps, channel edges, brush piles or other structure. Use light spinning tackle with 6- to 10-pound fluorocarbon line.
