A Shrimp With Attitude

I have tried and reviewed several lures including artificial shrimp lures but I am impressed with this lure very much. Actually there a two versions, a floater and a diver. Both have unique actions. Both versions have the line attachment on the tail and only one treble hook on the front. They have tensile around the \hook that mimics shrimp legs.

The diving version will plane under cover such as dock and when twitched swim toward the surface just like a real shrimp when it is pursued near cover. When given slack it will dive forward and downward back into or under cover. This keeps the lure in the strike zone much longer than most lures.

The floating version can be cast past the area to be fished. When reeled in or twitched it swim backward and down toward cover just like a real shrimp when it is pursued in open water. When given slack it will float up toward the surface. This keeps the lure in the strike zone much longer than most lures.

I have had excellent success using both lures on Sea Trout and Redfish. I even had a Flounder nail the diving version. I really like and admire the ingenuity that went into the design of these lures. The design provides a unique functionality that works to copy the swimming and actions of a very common prey item.

Unfair lures Company is a small independent company based in Sebastian, Florida. They don't sell or distribute through the mega chains like Walmart. Visit their web site to find a dealer.

I highly recommend these lures for salt marshes and flats with cover.
