How To Fish The Weedless Shrimp Rig Around Docks (LIVE Fishing Trip)


One of the absolute best ways to catch lots of fish is using this live “weedless” shrimp rig around docks.

Not only does it attract bites from almost everything like grouper, sheepshead, snook, and redfish…

But when rigged correctly, it stays completely weedless which allows you to fish areas with structure (and lose WAY less tackle).

Check out our LIVE fishing trip around docks to see this rig in action!

Spots are fine table fare! Never seen one on the west coast, but ate them for years as a kid when I used to vacation at my grandparent’s place on Singer Island next to the Sailfish Marina over near the Palm Beach Inlet. By the way, the Sam story was very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Great day of fishing. A lot of great information. Good job of releasing fish away from dolphin. Sorry Joe, didn’t enjoy your book review.

Hi guys, loved the video. The only thing I concern myself with is the fact that I have a 17′ tracker boat. and I worry that I will not be able to go into water’s like in the bay areas. I am a newbie with the boat. This is my first boat. Can you give me some good advice to boost my confidence? thanks, guys tight lines.

My advice would be to put hours in, become more familiar comfortable, and as you grow your comfort in operating the vessel, you will become more comfortable in less stable waters.

17 is fairly good size. I think the Trackers sit fairly high in the water. Definitely wouldn’t do jetty or something with a big channel for large ships to travel. Open waters would be too much. You should be able to maneuver most any river or waterway inshore.

Confidence will come with time and practice. Don’t exceed the abilities of your boat. Trust your gut, better safe than sunk. Safety devices are paramount. I always where vest when underway and clipped into the kill switch.

Your Tracker will work great for inshore fishing, tons of area to access. Enjoy!!!
