Drop Shot, Carolina or Texas rig the Erie Darter for best results.
Comments: John i fish on james all of the time and destroy the smallies. I caught a six pound bronzie with the green pumpkin 4 inch. best dropshot baits in the world.

Comments: Andy, you better think again. I fish these on James and surrounding lakes and I know people who have been throwing these for 3 or 4 years now. They still work good though. I fish them on jigheads and texas rig with small weight. Skip these under docks and fish on, don't even have to move it.

Comments: I absolutely love this bait. The tail twitches at the slightest tip movement and the fish really key in on the profile. Perfect soft plastic for sight fishing.

Comments: This is one of those lures fish don't see a lot of and man am I glad about it. These are fish catching macines. Texas rig, drop shot, fish it on a jig head but my favorite is using it as a jig trailer. Best color? JC Watermelon.

Comments: These baits tear them up in the spring. When a lipless isn't doing the trick, I texas rig these with a light 1/8 ounce weight in the normal prespawn staging areas. The hogs love them! Only trouble is that they aren't very durable so you better buy up.

Comments: I love this bait, I caught 4lb, 5lb and 2 1/2lb bass with it. It's a killer texas rigged. My favorite color is copper candy.
