Dropshot

A type of rig where the hook is further up the line and a weight is attached to the end of the line. A soft plastic bait is used on the hook, and it is suspended in the water by maintaining a tight line while the weight is on the bottom. This is a popular method for finesse fishing because it suspending the bait at the desired depth, allowing the fish plenty of time to examine it before biting.
