How To Fish DOA Shrimp
The D.O.A. Shrimp is one of the artificial baits that every surf fishing angler needs in their tackle box.
The D.O.A. Shrimp will catch any fish that will strike on a live shrimp. I’m referring to Redfish, Tarpon, Jacks and all the other predator game fish caught surf fishing. If you can catch it on live shrimp you can substitute the D.O.A. shrimp.
Live bait should always be your first choice. However live bait isn’t always available and you always run out when the bite is on.
Fish the D.O.A shrimp on a fishfinder rig. Substitute the pyramid sinker for an egg sinker so it doesn’t bite into the bottom. Work it slowly through the strike zone you are fishing. Give it a twitch now and then to give it a natural action.
For more natural presentation, cut off the tip of the tail and rig the hook from the rear. Shrimp swim backward not forward the way it comes rigged. Use a Daiichi screw holder hook in a 3/0 or 4/0 size.
