G. Loomis Drop Shot Rods

We make such an effort to keep baits on the bottom because that’s where a lot of the food is, but there are times when something a little more subtle is required. Sometimes you just have to put the bait in the fish’s way and let it wiggle. Drop-shotting puts the bait up off the bottom, where the fish can see it and keeps it there. They just can’t stand to have it hang there, vibrating enticingly right in front of their nose. The rods we use for this technique are special in their own right. The actions are extra-fast, but the tips are light so the angler can impart a subtle wiggle to the bait without a lot of wasted motion, but many times you just let it sit there and get good results. It doesn’t take a hard hook-set to get the fish, but rather a quick “lift” of the rod. We design the tip extra soft so that the fish can mouth the bait without a lot of resistance from the rod, but the magnum taper allows the rod to load up so quickly that once you lift it, the fish is hooked and 95 times out of 100 it will be hooked dead center in the upper lip.

We make two different power ratings… one for light line and open water situations, which includes a GLX version, and one that’s slightly stiffer for deep-water and brushy situations where you need a little more power to get the fish to the boat. For those anglers that prefer casting rods, we make two “fiber blend" models. All Drop Shot rods come with a foam strap - with our Skeleton Fish logo on it - to hold the rig in place on the rear grip for storage.
