Tail Hooked - Tail hooking is useful in two situations: 1. after catching numerous fish, the pre-rigged hook usually begins to slip from its head position; 2. if a more aggressive retrieve is necessary, but the horizontal falling motion is still desired. In each of these instances, anglers can chop off the tail fan and thread the artificial shrimp onto the hook tail first with the hook point protruding upward. Baits rigged in this fashion can be freelined, fished beneath a cork or actively retrieved.
1) this is extremely durable, tough plastic and setting a hook through it, into a fishes mouth, and reaching the outside of the fish's jaw will be very difficult. I have tried...
2) Once you remove the pre-rigged barbed hook it will never go back quite the same. I have had the hook slide out during normal usage and super glue will work for a short time but it will slip out again.
My suggestion, for what it is worth, is to use a larger sized Gulp shrimp. I have used them with a small (worm type) slip sinker. I like a 1/8 or 1/16 ounce tungsten weight for the flats. I have also done well going wihtout a weight using a Gamakatsu "braid" texas rig hook with great success.
I hope this helps
In clear water try for a very neutral pattern, like rootbeer.
In stained water or in low light I use a color that offers more contrast. Some people swear by the DOAs with chartreuse tails. I like a lighter color with either silver or gold glitter.
In my opinion a natural pattern is always a safer bet when you are unsure what to select.
Good luck and try to work them pretty slow.
Everything hits it look at the photo even a tiny puffer wanted a bite
I fished this bait on the Texas coast almost every day for 9 mos... Hail to the King
There's only one way to fish DOA Shrimp.
Cast out far as possible real in slow.. Ridiculously SLOW!
DOA has engineered these baits with an internal weight to keep the shrimp upright when it hit's the water, if you buy another brand shrimp well Don't do that! OK
