FISH A DEEP SHRIMP
Few baits draw attention from feeding fish like a shrimp, either alive or dead. When you need to fish a shrimp deep, of course add weight to the line or the leader. This works fine for soaking or drifting, but often you get better results by casting and swimming the shrimp back. When the depth of the water dictates the shrimp needs to get down and you want to be able to still manipulate it on the retrieve, rig it on a jig. The tried-and-true Troll-rite was made for this, but almost any jig works if rigged properly. Run the hook point up through the bottom of the head and out the top, taking care to avoid the dark spot. Hit that and the shrimp dies. For a better retrieve, break off the tail to prevent the shrimp from spinning, and release scent.
