A vertical lead-head jig gives the Shrimpo’s Finesse Plastic tail a mesmerizing 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!
Our precious metal series Shrimpo features either a gold or nickel plated head with a soft Finesse Plastic tail in a wide variety of colors.
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, dead falls and vegetation. Slip bobbers are also effective when fish are suspended above weed edges, brush or cribs. Trout find the Shrimpo irresistible and 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.
When crappies, walleyes, trout and big ’gills are on a minnow feed, almost nothing out shines a Precious Metal Series Ratso. Choose a Nickel Head and Hook in Glow Brite, Glow Brite Blue or Smoke Glitter to match emerald shiners and fatheads… Pick a Gold Head and Hook and match golden shiners or mayflies. There are definitely times when metal rocks! Choose the right color body, head and hook and the Ratso can mimic just about any forage that swims.
