Lair of the plastic worm

I put the fly rod away this spring, temporarily, so I could hone my conventional tackle skills. There's a small lake near the house full of largemouth bass, and I went to work with a drop shot rig, sorting out a technique that isn't as different from fly fishing as it might seem.

My preferred plastic baits are cucurbit-colored Yamasenkos — pumpkin, watermelon and green pumpkin.
