Lookout dropshotting is making a big comeback, and Berkley have released this little life like lure that is tried and tested for the Australian conditions.

With some of the best finishes we have seen on a plastic lure, this lure has integrated holographic foils that will attract every bass in the local area.


If there was ever going to a be combination of computer games and fishing, the dropshotting technique would be the closest thing possible.


Dropshotting is another technique making a comeback, and Berkley has a lure made for the Australian market that is already having huge success in the local impoundments.


Luke Draper has been nto Dropshoting for some time.

The first key with dropshotting is the slow presentation small plastics to schooling fish suspended or sitting close to the bottom of the lake. Use your electronics and find fish schools on your standard sonar, and present the lure with a lightly weighted dropshot weight right into the strike zone.


Work on your different types of retrieves and find out what the bass want, sometimes they may just bite as soon as the small meals arrives, sometimes they will need you to work the lure slowly up and down where they will attack it normally on the change of directions.


There is no right and wrong with this technique, you need to spend some time working out what your local bass need in your area. Once you do, you will have a deadly tactics in your arsenal that will catch bass all year round, and help you put bass in the well when others finding it tough to get bites.
