If you’re an Insider, you have exclusive access to these new lures so you’ll want to know the best ways to retrieve them.

Spoiler alert: twitch, twitch, pause!

And there are many ways to rig up this lure.

Owner Twistlock.

Trout Eye Jig Head.

Mustad Grip Pin.

But with my preferred retrieve, I like to use a Texas Eye Jig Head.

The biggest reason why I use these jig heads is the articulating eye.

When the lure comes down and settles, the eye allows subtle movement of the shrimp’s body in the water.

There’s a lot of versatility for this lure even when it’s just sitting on the bottom.

For the twitch, twitch, pause retrieve, pop the lure up with your wrist in the opposite direction of where the lure is in the water and incorporate pauses.

Trout and snook will strike as the lure is falling on the pause.

And if you’re targeting redfish, slow down your retrieve and allow a little more time on the bottom in the strike zone.

slow, straight retrieve/slow-rolling it works great for redfish as well*

Nice Video Wyatt! My question is when would you use this instead of the POWER PRAWN? The PP has a great action tail sooo?

Slam Shady shrimp or Power Prawn?

I like this rigging method for that lure but was wondering if you think those Texas Eyes could also be used on the Power Prawn?

Good stuff Wyatt! I like the idea of using the Texas Eye on them. I’ve got some of those jig heads but really haven’t found a purpose for them in my normal routine. I’ll have to try that out. Thanks!

Nice T-tail catch! I’ve never been with anyone who caught, or bragged to have caught, a T-tail on a lure.

Wyatt, compare times you would use the slam shady EZ ShrimpZ versus times you would use the Power Prawn. Seems like two great shrimp imitations, and I have done so well with the Power Prawn, when and why would I want to switch to the EZ ShrimpZ? Thanks Corky.
