There’s so many factors contributing to a successful drop shot presentation, with leader length critical among them yet still overlooked and under-analyzed. Elite Series pro Gary Klein explains the importance of rate of fall, which is directly tied to drop shot weight, and lure fall duration – the time it takes for the lure to reach bottom after the weight does. Some days the fish like it short, others, a long fall gets more bites. Klein explains another interesting point pertaining to tungsten drop shot weight shine and fish triggering (you need to hear this).
As a general rule of thumb, a long leader is better fit for fishing in grass and when fish are more tentative (longer fall period), whereas a short leader is beneficial for fish keying in on bottom forage.
