A vertical lead-head jig gives the Shrimpo’s Finesse Plastic tail a tantalizing action that big panfish can’t resist. Not horizontal and not vertical, it’s the perfect blend of both jig styles! We call it “verti-zontal,” and it catches fish when other baits fail!
Imagine catching world-class panfish without live bait! It’s now possible with the Shrimpo. The secret is in its lifelike Finesse Plastic tail, which constantly moves, even when you aren’t jigging. Use the Shrimpo in shallow water situations when fish are actively feeding—or not aggressive at all. A jig and pause cadence is recommended. Use the size 10 Shrimpo for ’gills and a size 6 for crappies and ’eyes.
If you’re looking for guaranteed panfish action every time you go fishing, then the Shrimpo is for you! They’re best fished beneath a small fixed float and cast around piers, docks, deadfalls and vegetation. Slip bobbers are also effective when fish are suspended above weed edges, brush or cribs. Trout find the Shrimpo irresistible and steelhead will hang on to the soft plastic body longer than most baits. No matter the species you pursue, try rigging a Shrimpo to a dropper rig! Simply take a 4 to 6-inch piece of 2- to 6 pound fluorocarbon or monofilament and tie to the split ring of a Pro-Glow, Pro Series, Hammered or original Slender Spoon, terminating the other end to the paint-free eyelet of your favorite size and color Shrimpo! Presented vertically, it’s often just the thing to tap difficult crappies, big ’gills … even finicky walleyes. And for trout? Short of a live grasshopper drifted past a lunker lodge in the August sun, there’s nothing more deadly! Fished on a spinning combo (even a fly rod), the Shrimpo routinely outfishes fly guides’ favorite flies!
