The Deep Drop Spreader is used while deep dropping and there is
very little current or drift. It measures 24” by 12” with long line release
snaps to attach to the main leader and a center snap swivel to attach the
When there is no current the line and the rigged bait will wrap
around each other which is a problem. The spreader will prevent this.
Using a Top Shot leader of 150 to 250lb test attached to the
main line, once the bait has been let out and the top-shot splice comes off the
rod tip you would lock up the reel and attach the spreader to the Top-Shot with
the clips on the spreader. Now with the weight attached you can let it all out
till you hit bottom much faster and without any tangle.
When you are hooked up and retrieving line when the spreader
reached the rod tip just snap the clips off the leader and start reeling again.
