Drop Shot Rig - SpecTastic Recoil Rig
You have just got to know about the special drop shot rig set up as a SpecTastic Recoil Rig that the pros
secretly use in the tournaments.
Check out the picture included that shows what
you need and I even put a Rig together for you. What the eye is not revealing is the special patented
high tech fishing line
used between the weight and
Basic Equipment: Weight, SpecTastic Elastic Thread Line, Swivels, and assorted soft
Line: 10# 12 pound Monofilament
line or Fluorocarbon line
Rod: Spin cast 7
Install the SpecTastic Elastic
Thread Line, and I have had anglers trying to use a rubber band instead. This is a special line
that acts like a bungee cord and has 35# pound breaking point through the weight. You can use the tube
type weight or you can use a bell weight it is up to you.
I like the tube weight because
there is less chance of it getting hung up. Once the line is passed through the weight; attach it to the wire
through the pineapple hole and pull. Make sure that you bend the wire at the ends toward the tip so it will
not slip back through the weight.
All this does is catch on the
bottom and hold it so you can work your bait up and down. If you do catch on something on the bottom, it will
pull free. If not, put a little pressure on it and the wire will come through the weight and all you lost was
the weight. A lot of anglers like to cut the wire after you bend it; that is okay.
Up at the other end; attach the line to either a pineapple swivel, or the barrel swivel. Now set that aside for a
second and attach the standout hook. That is made by True Turn and different sizes are available.
Now connect the main line to
what ever swivel you used and then install what ever bait you want to use.
I recommend a small Crappie
Jig, Berkley Minnow, or 4 inch worm.
Now you are ready to put it to
the test. This can be casted or fished vertical. Never throw your dead minnows away again. This rig will bring
them back to life with a little help from you.
You do not want to over work
the bait. It does not take much effort to make the bait wiggle. I always tell folks to PRACTICE at home in the
pool or bath tub so you know how to wiggle the tip of the rod.
Here again you can add baits to
the main line just the way I did with the Crappie Recoil Rig. Remember
the SpecTastic Elastic Thread Line is the magic to this rig and you will see what I mean.

I did about Five shows last
year around the Mid-South demonstrating how to work this rig and won every fisherman over. We even took it to
Bassmasters last year and impressed the Pro's. Bill Dance ended up with about a dozen or so.
There are a lot of folks out
there using this rig, but will not tell you. They do not want the secret to get out on how they are catching all
We even took it to the Trout
tank when no one else was catching anything. We put on a Berkley Night Crawler then dropped it in the tank and
caught the biggest trout that was in the tank.
Needless to say everyone came
over to the booth and bought some as they watched what else could work on this Rig.
Now out of my secret tackle
box, I will let you in on a secret. Try switching out the stand up hook for a regular bass 4/0 wide gap hook and
a Fluke during the early Spring on a Bass bed.
Again practice at home but you
can make that Fluke stand straight up with the tail out of the water and wiggle.
This is one Rig the Pros
secretly use that I highly recommend you have in your tackle box.
