I like 3 to 4 inch baits for dropshotting. Once I get to 5 inches, I prefer to texas rig or rig on a jig head.

  Mo Qwacker it's spelled El Gusano. Best worm mold ever made. I never drop shot. It's for sissies and crappie fisherman. Same thing.

DF Bro, a man can DropShot any Plastic.  Whether a standard DS Rig or my BKJ Rig.  I view a lot of DropShotting as simply a means to maintain a given distance off the bottom, respectively...the Presentations Retrieve (or lack thereof) might determine Which Rig to Use.

Covering a bit of water, the BKJ Rig can Weedless/Weightless TX-rig a Plastic with an EWG, and a 6" Finesse Worm fits well here.

Smaller, Nose-hooked baits, still or various retrieves, standard DS is killer.  4" or 4.5" Finesse Worms are Plenty Ideal, IMO, for this rig/presentation.  Super Stinger is also killer.

I wouldn't hesitate to use a 3.5" Ringworm, 4" Senko, Crosstail Carrot...

That was funny I'll give you that, however Guess who just got uninvited to the family fish fry  :P just because I drop shot , crappie fish, wear a pink tutu doesn't make me a sissy it's called food and fashion! I do like to drop shot! I prefer 2.5- 4 inch baits however if you drop shot a worm it doesn't matter. I've. Drop shotted 12 inch hand pours. It must move a lot! I use super soft. Hey Lamar our water is soft nananabooboooo  ;)

DF, I believe your in the bait swap and you will see what I sue for drop shot. I have had great success using 6in flukes in the grass on dropshot also. So don't have a "size" mind set. Do and or try what the situation might call for. Flipping a drop shot in deep grass works pretty good also.
