Just to name a few, DOA Shrimp have caught trout, snook, redfish, flounder, tarpon, ladyfish, jacks, sheepshead, large & small mouth bass. Fishermen need only to present the lures with a natural slow retrieve to be insured of many memorable days on the water.
Fishing the DOA Shrimp

One of the most important things is to use a loop knot when tying the shrimp to your leader. Your leader should be about 24” long - either 25 or 30 lb test. The loop knot allows the lure to swim freely and it will look more enticing to a fish that is eyeing it for a quick meal. If you can use either 8 to 14 lb test line on your reel, using light line enables you to feel a fish strike your lure a lot better than if you were using a heavier line. A 1/4 oz. Shrimp is recommended for line up to 8 lb test and 1/2 oz. Shrimp for 14 lb test and over. Tying your line to your leader directly without the use of a swivel is best. If you want to use a swivel, use the lightest one you can.

Cast the shrimp out and let it slowly sink to the bottom. Then take the slack our of your line. When the slack is out of your line, move the shrimp as slowly as you possibly can. The key word is SLOWLY. If you are fishing in shallow grass, by holding your rod up high this allows the shrimp to be moved across the top of the grass in an upward motion and should allow the shrimp to swim across the top of the grass. After you move the shrimp about 12 inches, which on most reels is about 1 or 2 turns of the handle, give the rod a very slight sharp twitch. You want to make the shrimp do a little flicking motion, just as a live shrimp would do.

Time will tell
I have yet to use it, but how can it NOT catch fish? Everyone raves about these baits. They are very realistic.

Perfect for Snook in the Surf
My family spends a lot of time on the Space Coast each year and we love surf fishing for Snook. On the calm days, this works perfectly while bouncing slowly through the first trough. Snook can’t resist!

Awesome for inshore
Caught a few nice slot reds on these just free lining them or using a cork. They're supposedly made of shrimp bits so that's probably why they work so well! They're pricey but that's b/c they work!
ProsLots of colors to choose from All work great
ConsSlightly on the pricey side
