I have to start off by saying that getting the skunk off after 5 or 6 unsuccessful consecutive trips to Mission/San Diego Bay. I primarily use 3" swim baits, T-rigged flukes or other plastics and jerk baits. After I kept reading of the Drop Shot over and over again I decided it was time to test it out. Never had I fished DS, decided "what the heck" what do I have to lose? Set up is 10lb. Izorline, 2/0 worm hook and 3/8 oz. DS weight. Reel is a Corvalus 400 and 7ft Seeker rod. Plastics I used were 3" Gulp ghost shrimp in natural pattern and Gulp 3" new penny ghost shrimp. The new penny shrimp were VERY flimsy, after a few fish I would have to hook another on as they were getting thrashed. Started at around 4:00 pm at Fiesta Island. Landed two in about an hour and a half, bite shut down so I decided to head over to Ski Beach...nobody home so I decided to hit San Diego Bay. Fished on the docks next to Fish Market and the bite was hot! In total, landed 7 SBB and 1 Mack. Had 4-5 missed fish, figured they were all dinks that couldn't get the entire bait into their mouth. Ended at 10:30 pm. Retrieve was slow with a few twitches here and there. I am now a proud member of the DS Cult and I will definitely add this to the arsenal. Can't believe it's taken me this long to try this technique. Thank you to everyone on this message board. Definitely has helped me become a better angler.
