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!

Killer on trout!
Posted by Bill on Feb 7th 2017
The size 6 is just perfect for trout, and they take it in the lip almost every time. Hooks hold securely. I'm ordering more.

Love the shrimpo's! Catching fish without the need to bring any bait (spikes/waxies) haven't bought bait for a couple years now
Great Bait for finicky panfish

Great bait to use plain or tipped with live bait, They come in many different colors and 3 fish catching sizes.I like to fish the glow colors during the night. Flash the entire jig for 30 seconds, Send it down and hold on!

great gill getter
Always in the tackle box

I've been using the Shrimpo bait for a few years now, originally I purchased a handful of these after a couple of years cleaning walleyes and finding them stuffed with fresh water shrimp. I used them on one of my Lake of the Woods ice fishing trips and loved them. They are not the first bait I use but when the bite gets finicky these will put some fish in the bucket. I also have caught a ton of crappie and gills with these. This is the best jig / plastic combo I have used and is always with me wherever I go fishing.

well so far I have not been able to use this bait, however they look so much like the real thing that I believe that I will do well with them. I'm working on my boat right now and should be able to go sometime at the end of the week. I have some brush piles and the white perch are all over them. my fishing partner has been catching them left and right off of the piles. and these looked so much like the real thing I could not believe it. thank you for a great product.

I like them to land trout...

Shrimpo and Ratso both put lots of gills in the bucket through the ice. Hope they do the same come spring.
Consistently puts crappies on the table

One of my go to ice fishing jigs. Many 11"-12" crappies have choosen a shrimps as their last meal
Under ice or under lily pads
Posted by Gary on Feb 5th 2016
Have caught gills and perch consistently under the ice with these in IL and WI, tipped with a single spike. In summer, have used without tipping (black & smoke glitter) for suspended crappie on hot days in thick lily pads. Under a tiny round float just 12" down, toss it into lily pads, let it settle, and BAM! crappie on... no jigging, gets hit on the fall as if it was a larval glass worm or mosquito nymph. I live in Florida now and will see how crappie and bluegill respond here. I miss sitting on the ice.
