Lake of the Isles (MN)

Michael Rekas reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Drop Shot technique and WOO! Tungsten Drop Shot Weight - Cylinder Shape on Lake of the Isles. Additional comments from this report: "Fishing a drop-shot around shallow targets and the edge of grass lines has caught good numbers with a couple quality fish in between. Small roll casts and flips have got the job done, the tighter you can get to cover the better. "

Crystal Lake (84) (MN)

On Crystal Lake locate the deeper weed lines 10-15ft. Ideally locating milfoil or coon tail as the main vegetation. Using a VMC finesse neko hook, Texas-rig the plastic to be more weedless. Work the drop shot down the whole weed line until you get bites. Once you catch a fish there is a good chance there are multiple in the area so be sure to work the area over well before moving on. This should produce a decent number of fish with some quality ones mixed in.

WOO! Tungsten Drop Shot Weight - Tear Drop

$4.69 – $7.29

Reported by
Michael Rekas

Pool 1 Mississippi (MN)

Took a day trip to the river in mid-august to try and find some smallmouth. With the water being low bank access was much easier. The drop shot and shakey head were the ticket. With the water down and slow current fish seemed to be scattered. We caught them up and down the bank and fish seemed to be holding in the main river tight to the bottom. Dragging a shakey head or shaking a drop-shot caught small numbers, with the occasional 2-2.5 lber. Moral of the story is, don't overlook Minneapolis' urban fisheries!

Lake Minnetonka (MN)

Tonka has been rough for crappie because of my experience but the water temp was 58-61 in different parts of the lake so I decided to go fish very shallow dock pilings in small pockets hidden from main lake. With a good pair of sunglasses and being quiet with the trolling motor me and my partner were able to get in without spooking all the fish, I used a 14 inch drop shot leader to keep the bait high in the water so the crappie can see it and most of my fish were caught lightly shaking the bait to keep it up. The picture I took was a bass in the same pocket because all my crappie ended up in the live well LOL.
