Shrimp Cocktail

Since almost everything in the sea eats shrimp, it's a good idea to have some of these patterns and lures with you when fishing. I've caught so many different fish on shrimp lures and patterns. These small crustaceans pack quite a large caloric punch so maybe that's why fish like them so much.

The D.O.A. Shrimp is one of my favorite baits to find fish. Remember, when using any shrimp lure or pattern, the key is to fish it S-L-O-W. For some reason, everything that swims seems to LOVE this color (Clear/Red Flake).

Chartreuse Sparkle is nice in dingy or stained water.

Grass Shrimp are prevalent on the flats in the summertime. They are small (less than an inch) but numerous. If you're on fish and can't get them to eat, try tying on a Crystal Shrimp size #4.

E.P. Shrimp. AWESOME when you can get it in front of shallow redfish on the feed. Let it sit on the mud bottom and give it a twitch as the fish approaches. Should trigger an immediate strike.

Not sure what this Double Bunny is supposed to look like but I fish it like a shrimp and the trout seem to like it.
