I've done it before but using brighter colored soft plastics.. today was on a 5" finesse worm in a dark green with gold flake. It was a keeper but not a slab.. but still I was surprised. The bite was really subtle.. I was pretty sure it wasn't a bass but it explained several bites I got fishing that spot. It was on a ridge with lots of rock.. it about 20' of water. I was graphing tons of fish and bait on that ridge.. I caught 2 bass on the ridge.. drop shotting the same bait and also on a crank bait. Now I'm thinking about dropping a crappie jig down there some times!

this time o year many species will hang together because the baitfish gather.
