After a long Winter season, Spring is in the air and most of us can’t wait to bust out the shorts and sandals and soak up the sun.  Although the warmer weather is always welcome, for fisherman it means that some of the best fishing of the year is about to take place over the next few months. Fishing is always on the top of my list, but the winter months can be quite challenging for most, so rather than face the cold or tough fishing conditions many people hang up their fishing rods waiting for March to roll around. ...

The Drop Shot is probably one of the most productive fishing techniques today and one that works just about anywhere in the country no matter the time of year. Although this technique is considered to have originated or taken off on the West Coast, primarily in the deeper reservoirs of California, it is believed to have been invented by the Japanese.
