Incredible Shrimp Lure Test Results (Flounder, Snook, & Grouper LOVE It)


For the last few months, we’ve been on a mission to find the ultimate shrimp lure…

And we’ve finally found it!

We’ve been testing out different designs, sizes, materials, and even different jig heads for rigging them to catch big fish.

And judging by all the fish that smashed it on this short trip, we’ve finally got it dialed in.

Even with Otis making all sorts of commotion on the boat, I caught loads of fish in this trip that was under 1 and a half hours (all filmed on 1 GoPro battery).

In this video, you’ll get one of the very first glimpse of this lure in action.

Check it out below!

Hey Luke, I recently got a brand new Ci4+ 4K in a trade. I know you guys aren’t fans of Shimano currently. I know I will eventually have to change the line roller bearing. But I was wondering how you felt about it paired with that Triumph? I plan to use it for (1/2oz to 1ish) artificial at the Jetty and docks. Also… Might have to wait for the Bull Bay Custom 👀 if you guys are doing a heavy version. Thanks for all your help.

Thanks for the info and the clarity,Luke!! I will def give a Triumph a feel. I own a Tidemaster MHF76 and I love it.

I recently learned about a lower priced reel from Shimano if you guys wanted to test it. The Spheros SW Inshore. Sizes are 3K and 4K. 3K weights 9oz and has the Hagane body and gear. Sturdier stem over the Fuego? Reel retails at $120.

Good video, anxiously waiting for when you get that shrimp lure in stock. Question…why do you use 2 different pound test leaders? Why not just use the one heavier leader onto the braid main line?

Thanks, Greg

Got a quick question. When you are using Artificial paddle tails and shrimp, do you use Braided line with a Fluorocarbon leader?
Thanks, Donnie
