Photo detail

The power shot is created much like a drop shot. A swivel attaches the rig to the main line. A 3/0 or 4/0 hook is tied to the leader down from the swivel and a weight at the bottom completes the rig. (Photo by Beckie Gaskill/Lakeland Times)

When is the best time to fish a power shot?

The short answer is any time. But it is not necessarily that simplistic. First, the question to be answered is what, exactly, a power shot is. The power shot can be thought of as a “beefed up” version of the drop shot. It can be a great way to cover water and will help to keep the bait in the strike zone longer.
