With their downward facing, vibration legs and consistent level drop rate DOA Shrimp Lures have successfully fooled almost every species of fish that feed on live shrimp. 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.

Love DOA

DOA shrimps are my fav lures for inshore salt. I have a lot of the 1/4 ounce ones but Im going to try these 1/2 ounce ones out for a bit more casting distance and quicker decent in the water column.

I really like the way this lure looks. I expect great results from when I get to fish this lure.
I didn't give it 5 stars because I haven't had the chance to fish it yet; but again, I expect great results when I do!

perfect shrimp imitation
January 22, 2021
most lifelike shrimp imitation on the market. Super effective lure for myriad species. If you're not catching fish with these, you're either in the wrong spot or working them too fast.

cast and forget
December 17, 2020
best lure for just dangling out in the current. You can trail it behind a cork and catch fish without even moving it! For casting, its the perfect dock lure. The action is on the fall/less is more
  • catches everything!
  • has to be worked slow, doesn't cast well on it's own

an addicting lure!
July 6, 2019
first cast, flounder... second cast another flounder... completely shocked, I should have walked away with that. the right place the right time and definitely the right bait. 2.75" 7/16oz night glow shrimp.
  • very realistic
  • affordable
  • sharp
  • great action
  • definitely get the glass rattles!
  • gotta play with it so you can figure out how you want to fish the bait, take some time to watch it swim.
