Lifelike Shrimp Bait

Lifelike Shrimp

To create the ultimate bait in both appearance and movement, Savage Gear took 3-D computer scans of actual shrimp as the basis for its new TPE Manic Shrimp lure. With exaggerated legs and antenna, and a specially designed tail section infused with nylon mesh to prevent tears, this lure offers lifelike kicking and secondary actions. Rigged with a weighted ultrasharp EWG hook, the TPE Manic Shrimp is available in 21⁄2, 4 and 5 inches in a variety of ultrarealistic paint jobs. From $5.99; savage-gear.com
