The Esky Shrimp is a favorite artificial bait among locals and guides in Key West because it matches the size and dimensions of Shrimp found on our flats and in backcountry mangroves. Shrimp are a favorite food for virtually every fish that swims. The Esky Shrimp is an excellent artificial bait for Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, Speckled Trout, Snappers, Redfish, and Flounder. Match it with an All About The Bait 1/8 or 1/4 oz Fish Head Jighead, 1/4 oz Cobra Jighead or AATB Rigging Kit. Works great in top, mid, and bottom water column. ***Available in Key West at Esky Rods in the Kmart Shopping Plaza.
The 4" SHMINNOW (Shrimp/Minnow) is designed to mimic both a Shrimp and Minnow. This is accomplished by building off of a standard Fluke but with the addition of the Esky Shrimp's tail. In original form the body mimics a 4" Shrimp. By simply trimming the Shrimp tail, it resembles a standard split tail fluke or Minnow. Also, by using a fluke body and the slits in top and bottom of the body, it is made to be rigged weedless using the AATB rigging kit. This creates a weedless, top water, very slow sinking soft plastic bait. With the addition of either the weighted weedless hook or standard jighead, the bait can also be used for mid and bottom of the water column. 5 colors: Original (Natural), Cranberry, Gray, Gold, and Glow.
