I'm getting a new Drop shot mold. My plan this year is to start using drop shots more often. What is some good colors to make? The mold I'm getting looks kinda like the dream shot but has a little bit bigger head.

Really depends on water color heck I have caught them on bright pink in clear water 20ft deep and caught them in 10ft on perch colors really depend on how you are fishing and water color.

Those all sound like great colors, but don't forget the spill way point and the island by twin dikes at rayburn that's two of my favorite places to dropshot at that lake.

Bold Bluegill, green pumpkin, and morning dawn are all I use.

Green pumpkin.
Aaron's Magic (or the twenty other names of "magic" by other companies).

Maybe a black.
