Live bait fishermen have been using a dropshot style rig for years but this style of fishing is a critical tool for any tournament angler to master for artificial bait use as well.  There isn't another presentation style that I use more.  It is  efficient, versatile, and exciting to fish!  While I use a variety of baits based on situation, without a doubt my go to is the XZone Lure Company's - Slammer.  It's like smallmouth candy!  It's perfect presentation entices the tough bite.  They have a variety of great color options.
