nice bass in the two pound range… bring him in here. Oh my gosh it is a heavy one look at that Oh you know when I drop shot I have shown this before But a lot of you are new to the show What I do is the bobber stoppers now with.. you know what let’s get this back in there now They are spawning so you can see how how fat this fish was. so let’s let him go. ready? let’s see if he comes up and jumps again well you can see that we caught him on the new bobber stopper drop shot there’s..I invented this three years ago and there’s not a lot of people that uses the only, I’m probably the only one that uses it in arizona but in our bass fishing seminars I taught this many times at the Bass Pro Shop doing this technique that’s a really neat … neat technique you know and maybe later I’ll pull out the bober Stoppers and show you what they look like we’re just using two bob’s stoppers but one on the hook on the new put her on hold it in place so let’s catch another fish and I am just using a bait caster on this one alright so I’ve got 12 pound test line here but the secret is I gotta swivel on this is connected to the 12 and I have 8 fluorocarbon as a leader so you can have as much thick as line as you want up top tie with a swivel put 8 pound fluorocarbon on their three feet of it , put your worm on, drop shot, you are set to go. So I have a robo worm red crawler on here. so we go through and see if we can get another fish. so we going to fleck out fleck this out in front of the boat.Like that, let that go down and hit the bottom. most of the fish are coming close to the shore right now as we move up the lake you will see that close fishing to the shore. it could be two feet up the bank or it could be fifteen feet off the bank so, so I’m targeting some of these little coves like this these little indentations like this right out there I’m just pitching right now just pitching right now not casting it if you can learn how to pitch your bait is so much better and it’s so accurate like every time I fleck one out there i’m looking ahead and what I want to do next so everyone says to me at the Bass pro shops where do you know how to cast were you where do you place that lure at how do you know what how are you doing it when you look at the bank and you see it’s sandy and all of a sudden you come to a rocky spot like this it is a goldmine this fish migrate to these rock because we don’t have we got some stops here but we don’t have a lot of Fish here so that rock in the water over there I’m going to pitch to that rocked it in the water coming out right up to it like that pull it off the rock I actually hit on there and there should be things like that that’s where they could be congregate you know and I’m just gonna I’m just dragging out where I’m not sitting there and shaking like this I’m just I’m just pulling it like a Texas rigged so I miss my drop shot just like a Texas rig.Now this is what happens to most people I take fishing and it happened a lot you have to get in the mindset that if you pull it in between you stop and you are resting all of a sudden you feel that tick or something abnormal is happening set the hook right a way the reason is when you feel the tick the fish has that bait in his mouth and he’s chewing on it if you wait to the second tick he spiting it out so so many people miss their bites so as soon as you,… there’s several ways to set that hook you know I’ll get one here in a minute and I’ll show you know cast it out let it go to the bottom sometimes ninety percent of the time if they see it go down there gonna take it ok just went over a rock I am just pulling along just kinda like a Texas rig or a jig I just pulling that sinker a long. I’m feeling all those little rock’s coming down the shore line just pulling it pulling it so if I got to there.And I pulled it and I stopped and i felt that tick you don’t have to rear down and set the hook hard these hooks are sharp you know All you got to do is go pop and you get one. we’re gonna just fish a little bit here and then when I get one on all Show ya I will just say Oop there a bite and then pop then I got the fish. So now I got the pressure on so when you see the little rock piles like this these piles come way out on the lake they come way way way out here so I’m looking at a big bunch of rocks out here which are magnets for the fish and I don’t know if the camera can see that or not but there’s there’s big ol boulders and stuff following the shore right on down so usually what you see on the shore coming out on the lake.Sense we just got a bite here let’s keep trying this I’m just coming down that nice sloopyl thing right there there’s my tap coming up another drop shot fish doing red crawer but you guys can see that you know how this works with this weight and the fish were it’s hooked the weight sitting right on the worm and right on the right on the hook you have no more tangles with this method at all so I’m just gonna catch him almost always right there on top of the of the fish like that so that they can be released you know for somebody else to catch so but good method I mean you don’t get stuck that much if you do you know the fish lights down now I don’t have to now I don’t have to untangle this mess I just have to straighten the worm out slide it back up with the bober stopper and it’s done. So well let’s get this back in Let me see if we can get him to jump Nope he wants to go down So we just going to reposition this worm I Texas rigged worms I don’t nose hook em So I am gonna take this and hook it back up 1/8 of an inch on the hook pull it up Remember the trick is make sure that worm is straight it’s gotta be straight to if If you got your worm all waded up.. there’s my bober stopper on the bottom might be hard for you to see.I will get a little closer. but it is black I am using a black one on the bottom and a red one on the top and it doesn’t matter if they’re both black it just doesn’t matter so I’m gonna slide that up and actually that’s pretty deep I’m actually catching them today I’m catching a little bit closer to the bottom eight inches so it’s basically what I’m doing just you know like this so let’s go out and get a few more we are fishing a point right now and if I can get the camera turned around I’ll show you guys right here on the corner on these steep steep banks like we’re looking at right here this a good summer pattern winter and summer pattern that I’ll throw that bait into 2- 3 feet of water and then I will pull it off if you look up the bank you can see how just vertically drops off on a 90 degree angle so and I’m gonna pitch this you noticed I’m using a bait caster again so I switch off between the spinning and a bait caster so I’m just gonna pitch that up to two feet from the bank now I’m gonna raise my line when you’re blind bows like this you know it on the bottom cuz it’s only going to drop two or three feet from turned the boat so you can see this so it it’s going down and I’m not shaken it cuz they don’t want a lot some days they want it shook like crazy and some days they don’t so I actually just pulling this real slow just pulling this off and just going down and it’s bumping the rocks and going down the sand I just keep working it down I am working it down to about 15 feet today it seems like after fifteen feet I can’t get bite you know so things like this where that rock is entering the water right there I don’t know if you can see that we’re goes down right and water that’s that’s a good place to hit like that right there bring that across because you got smooth rock and then you got rocks that are actually pile on that shoreline so we’re just going to let that go back down but you never know what you’re gonna find your fish you just don’t you know they can be anywhere like the two we caught were on the other side of the bouy over there so we got to over there.We’re going to venture back over that way and see if there’s another one i mean we’ll try it again it might be good maybe there’s two or three over there where I can get a get another one to bite it so I’m just gonna pitch that out nice and easy feel it a little line. lift up because as that bait sinks sometimes with about 90% of the chance you’re gonna get that bite.Nope.. Let’s try it again just gonna keep keep testing you want to test too and see how how deep you as you are coming down and feeling that rock now Where I just caught that last when there’s a lot of little rock down there about 4-5 feet off the bank so I’m just gonna go and down a little bit at a time it I’m not shaking it all I am just pulling it two ways to catch his fish on the drop shot some days they want it where you just kind of shake it like this you know what goes down and then there’s days that they just want that be just pulled down the mountain so I’m gonna get back out to 10 feet I’m gonna throw it back up again right up there. right were I caught that other one. and just see what happens just just can’t let that real slow remember they’re just coming out of spawn they’re just they’re not even spawned they’re moving up to spawn coming out a deep water a lot of them and they wanna move up the buck bass are looking for a place to spawn so so I’m only sitting in the nine feet of water.I’m pretty close to the bank now normally I like to keep my boat in 15 feet, twenty feet at least unless I am Fishing real deep so I look for spots to throw like i’m looking up there where it’s coming out on the rock up there so I’m gonna throw up there like that right there and I’m just gonna let that go down lift up my rod because sometimes when its bottom the fish is already on it. so I just kinda pull that down we could have caught the only two fish on the bank who knows. there’s a lot more along here thou. we came a long this steep stuff. I like Fishing this in the summertime see how steep it is.I like drop shotting it and Texas rigging. throwing jigs on this bank you know It is just a time when they after they spawn come up here and as long as the shad is here they’ll pull up on this bank but you know you can’t go wrong with the point coming down on the side of a mountain you know you don’t know where to fish either fish big rocks or fish points coming down that that’s that’s just a no-brainer right there so did you get that hook set. little sucker huh he is jumping He doing his acrobats for us Alright in the boat oh gosh that is a fatty whoops! Did he keep my hook? No hook in there.All right should we let this one go. Comin up at the back of the boat another nice fish boy they fight hard in the springtime like this Nice fish so if this drop shot method that you actually can screen around in like this and look were we caught them right there, there is my drop shot right there I will reach-in Wow If I can get my finger in there and get out the hook It’s a nice Bartlett lake bass pound, pound and a half. It’s a fun day I tell you when the springtime like this it’s great so let’s just let him go see if we can get him jump again he is gonna go down. we’re gonna give this We are coming to give this point just a little bit more because it’s so good and I have caught fish off this point you know so we’re just dragging and after off the ground there’s my tap let’s get him in we are go here in a minute but this drop shot has been so good today might be a little one but that’s ok no it’s a pretty good sized one oh my gosh that is not a bad fish look at that nice for calling our show anyway thank you for tuning in with Fishing with Gary Senft thanks to Opal Images Dave Jones thank you for allowing us to bring these videos to you tell your friends to watch we do appreciate you watching and we love bringing these to you Bartlett Lake mid-march tune in for the next one drop shot. .
