I seldom drop shot with light line and finesse baits. I do use the technique for trophy bass. To power drop shot all you have to do is upgrade to a bait caster, heavier line, larger bait and a heavier weight. I drop shot with a 7' med/heavy rod, 14-20 lb line, heavy hook and a 3/8-1/2 oz weight. The same technique is used--keeping the bait deep but off the bottom. Finesse shotting will produce a smaller average weight of bass than power shotting. If you use finesse techniques and are catching small bass, try upgrading in the same area for larger bass.
