Known for thinking outside the box, Elite Series pro Terry Scroggins shares a secret that has drastically improved his hookup ratio while bass fishing with drop shots.

Most anglers were slow to adapt to drop shots when they were first introduced. As more top finishes were notched by anglers employing the technique, however, public acceptance also increased. Now, you’d be hard pressed to find an avid bass angler without a drop shot rig handy.

As more folks became skilled with a drop shot, professional anglers began experimenting with the rig to make it more efficient. Elite Series pro Terry Scroggins has found one such experiment that works for him: He ties his 1/0 Gamakatsu Drop Shot Hook with a snell knot.
