I'm sure you will get several dif opinions but here is a vid we put up a while ago with Gary on Delta bubba shotting... he will probably chime in on the link at some point as well... but this will get it started.

Gary summed it up. I'll add I used it for the first time during the spawn last year, and wow...so effective. Everything is bigger so you can fish in or near the thick stuff.

I use a dobyns 733 and a 7:1 & flip it like you would a senko. It's been known to work.

Bubba shotting is a deadly technique on Cal Delta. I use the Re-Barb hook only. It's a Gamakatsu hook that Robo Worm takes and puts a keeper on it. It's the best. I use a 4/0 the most. I also use heavy line like 20 lb test because I'll throw it anywhere. Some guys will use 12- 15 lb test because it's easier to fish really. But I'm a chicken :) to do this. My best to date on Bubba Shot rig is 12lb 2 oz. I did catch her at Clear Lake though. It works well there too.

Not to Hi Jack the post, but what rod action does everyone prefer? Hopefully Gary could pipe in as well.

I like a fast action rod for this. Many guys use a 3 power or Med/Hvy. I like a bit more power so I normally use a 4 power which is a heavy but it must have a great tip before coming into backbone. My favorite is DX 744C Full Handle. But, any of our 3 or 4 powers will work as I always build a little tip into the rods. I also like MM3 or any of the oxblood colors in 6" or 7". THX and good luck fishing!!!!

Best weight for Bubba Shotting is a QuickDrop, and besides all the small sizes they come in 1/2 oz, 3/4 oz, and even 1 oz. The teardrop shape punches a hole in the mats so the worm follows without fowling, and the shape allows the weights to come back out of the mat easily without grabbing weeds.
