Looking for Something Different
Every year the bass fishing industry comes out
with the newest hot bait, or the bait and presentation that will
change the industry. We have seen this phenomenon in past years go
from the likes of swim baits, and Senko’s to big jigging spoons plus
many more. In the last couple of years we have been hearing about
drop shot fishing, and for Guntersville this bait has had limited
returns. Now I believe a company Secret Weapon Lures (SWL), has
found an answer for the Guntersville grass, in a drop shot rig.
SWL has come out with a drop shot rig they call a “Recoil Rig” a
drop shot bait with a flexible extension that I believe could be the
next storm on Lake Guntersville; mainly because the Recoil Rig will
work in the grass and the long points and ledges on Guntersville. I
recently had the pleasure of fishing with SWL representative and my
mind couldn’t help but envision all the possibilities for this rig.
With the flexible elastic drop shot you can work in grass, it
wiggles the bait like a wounded baitfish and ought to be a deadly
weapon to fish during the spawn. You can’t help but visualize this
bait wiggling next to a spawning bed, or along the edge of a grass
line, or down 20 feet on a muscle bed. The presentations are endless
and the results could be deadly.
Those of you who have great patience for the wintertime fishing,
this presentation can be worked slowly yet the bait reacts with
intense movement. Rig a Comida or small 6 inch Mister Twister worm
to it and the movement will amaze you as you slowly move it over a
