Exactly, it's 90% locating fish and about 3% what bait you use... I know plenty people that do just fine with Vudu and Marker 54 Shrimp.. both are good. Do a search for every single thread TroutSupport has ever written.. start with the older ones... start there, always feel free to email me with any questions.
VuDu makes a great bait .so fish it Slow .. slower ..and profoundly slow .
. the old DOA .. â€œbang bang â€œ with the rod tip is over (unless you still toss DOA ) .. the flex tail has plenty of action so you only need a gentle tick , tick , tick of the rod tip .. pick the lure up ..let the lure fall .. almost like fishing a paddle tail
For under a cork .. pop it every 1 Mississippi ..but not your big bait â€œBOOMâ€ pop .. more like a gentle tic .. if you can barely hear the cork on the pop ..thatâ€™s hard enough ..every 1 Mississippi..and your leader should never be longer than 10â€ under the cork (thatâ€™s true for most lures under a cork FYI)
Granted this is all advice for forward motion shrimp lures .. and we all know shrimp go backwards ;-D
Also stick with natural colors at first .. the funky colors work if in specific conditions but shrimp are brown or white everyday
