Kevin VanDamAs much as I love power fishing techniques, you’ll see a drop-shot rig in my hands just about any time I’m fishing Michiana lakes during the summer.

In fact, it’s the best way to catch bass on natural lakes this time of year and one that I’ve done very well with on places like Klinger, Gull and even Grand Traverse Bay.

Bass will school and suspend just off the bottom over the deep grass flats of our lakes, so a drop-shot is ideal for catching them.
