Top Retrieves With Artificial Shrimp Lures For Inshore Fishing

It is no secret that using artificial shrimp lures for inshore fishing is an excellent way to trigger BIG bites!

Only thing is, if you don’t know how to retrieve these lures, then they’re basically useless.

In this video, I’ll share my TWO favorite retrieves I rely on to consistently catch fish.

Artificial Shrimp Rig:

There are two types of retrieves I rely on to trigger bites on shrimp imitations.

The first is for reeling in the most fish and the second is for targeting the BIG fish out there.

Everyday Retrieve

First, cast the lure out and let it sink to the bottom.

The type of fish we’re targeting here are flounder, redfish, and other bottom feeders.

Once the lure hits the bottom, close the bail and give the lure a few rod twitches.

Keep the rod tip high so the line is semi-slack in front of you.

That will allow the shrimp to glide forward instead of falling straight down.

Reel in the slack and continue that process.

The intensity of the twitches and length of pauses will depend on the mood of the fish.

If the fish are lazy or neutral, the twitches should be less aggressive with longer pauses.

If they are actively feeding, you can pick up the pace and aggressively pop the lure.

Make adjustments from there as the fish tell you want they want to eat.

For the most part, this is how I will retrieve an artificial shrimp lure.

Sightfishing Retrieve

This next retrieve is best when you see a tailing fish or a fish cruising a shoreline.

Toss the lure out and aim in front of the fish in the direction it is swimming.

This way, as you work the lure back to you, it will intercept the fish.

Let the lure sink to the bottom and then slowly drag it along the bottom.

You don’t want to bring the lure to the fish here.

You want the fish to find the lure.
