Video: Drop-Shot Cod on Stellwagen Bank
Here’s a great video from Hogy on drop-shotting for cod on Stellwagen Bank off Cape Cod. This is a great technique that allows the angler to use light tackle for cod. The high gear ratio of the reel (42″ of line per crank) helps get the rig up in a hurry, making it easy to reel up and stay dialed in on the bottom. The great sensitivity of the braided line, fast reel and deadly Hogy lures combine for deadly results.
