Good Evening,

I spotted a ready made trace in my local tackle shop last year, it was set up similar to hakkais with 3 hooks and these little shrimp like soft plastics on them. Anyway I thought the little shrimp would look better suited on a light jig head and gently danced through the blue yonder :) .

Anyway I bought a few traces and stripped them down and put a few shrimps on different jig heads. I only used the shrimp on a couple of occasions last year, but was wondering do any of you guys use anything similar on your adventures? Do you fish them differently to the larger soft plastics? And do you find them more productive over certain marks like sand, boulders, kelp, broken rock etc?


See picture below: ( its the one with the red circle around it)



Having a small technical issue here... :lol:

Shrimp ?

Sure.

Most active on our marks in the gutters on dropping tides hiding close to the wrackweed.
Bass sit out till the death waiting for them to get flushed out of the 'feeder creek' style
micro side gullies.

My main shrimp pattern is a fly pattern but i had good success with the DOA shrimp a few years back.

Close to heavy weed cover and near sustainable rock pools try drop shotting or a bombarda rig with a
team of plastic shrimp the last one weighted. fish in a stop go fashion. Drift and sharp (short) jerks.

DOA makes some awsome softbaits for saltwater fishing, at the level of some of the top japanese brands (and less expensive also).

I like the DOA shrimp to fish in estuary zones and I also like the CAL jerkbait, that one rigged with a Storm lip weight jighead has caught me some nice seabass.

Agree with the DOA shrimp patterns, come in different weights. Havent had much look over this side of the pond but they worked in the states.
Danny ,Twitched over the bottom in those Estuaries, maybe the ticket.

PM me your address , I will drop a couple in the post for you to try, as long as you let me know if they work. ;)
