Jackall or Robo plastics for drop shot

Postby Finnz922 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 11:41 am

The obvious answer is both, but I am looking to stick with one brand. OCD thing ](*,) . I currently use the Cross-Tail Shad, but was wondering if anyone uses the Roboworm Alive Shad or FX Sculpins.

What are your opinions and if you had to pick one brand which would it be?

Most of my drop-shotting is in 25' or less and usually slightly stained water. I just switched from my tried and true Daiwa TD-X Drop Shot rod to an Irod Air. Going from a Daiwa Sol 2000 to a Tatula LT Sterling 3000. I will also be trying YGK G-Soul SS112 Sinking Braid in 16lb with a fluoro leader.

The Roboworm worm baits float, (after you get the salt off them in a few casts), but I'm not sure if their other plastics float. It's something to consider.

If I HAD to choose one, it would be roboworms. Most of my drop shot bites have come on roboworms; if they're not liking the straight tail worm I'll switch over to the alive shad and vice versa. I've tried those FX Sculpins and have gotten bites, but I've gotten more bites on the straight tail. I've heard good things about the cross tail shad, but haven't a chance to try them out.

I use both and generally catch more fish on the Alive Shad vs the Cross Tail. Of course, there are some days when the reverse is true, which is why I carry both.

Just the small Roboworms for me, too.

But, I have had great luck, at times, on small Keitech shad-like baits when fish seem to have different "supper plans."

Just a bit of "OCD processing" and you will carry out at least two plastics and feel okay about it!
