I like drop shot in place of jigging a lot of times for eye's. Do you guys have any baits you like for walleye drop shot fishing?

I use Drop Shot weights, and tie an Octapus hook on, have used both minnows and plastics.

Really, anything that you would fish on a jig. They all catch walleye. Even most bass drop shot plastics too. They key is having the bait the appropriate heighth from the weight. If the eyes are tight to the bottom, a 6-18" drop works. If the fish are suspended, I go 24-30" up.

Exactly D2.

I do it because its quicker to just tie a palomar. Also, to stay closer to the bottom with whatever type of hook I'm using.

basically could call a three way with jig dropper and plain hook or floating jig with live bait or plastic on the upper a type of drop-shot rig..

A regular octopus hook and a bigger fathead minnow or the good half of a crawler are held a little off the bottom weighted down with a chain of small split shot... Enough to hold the bait to the bottom but still let the fish suck in whatever is on your hook. Fishing with kids I sometime put two hooks and two baits on. Tie on the hooks with a palomar knot.

One of my favorite and most successful methods is drop-shotting with floating jigs/minnows on the 3 Lakes chain.
