Drop shot fishing

 Has anyone tried drop shot style fishing. Weather looking good Tuesday / Wednesday, planning a trip out wide and thinking of giving drop shot rigs a go for some bait. 1 advantage I can think of is the rigs cant get tangled like a 2 or 3 hook rig on very light line does. Picture attached of a hook I tied using a very tightly cinched dropper loop > hook stands out horizontal to the line nicely. I reckon a small softy plastic hooked through the nose should work well


Don't spend all your money on beer, boats, and fishing. Save some to spend foolishly

Poss for bait lives ,but anything bigger your main line would get bitten off. IMO.
