I’m getting in the weeds on this one but I was thinking about it yesterday after seeing what else was in my trout’s belly. There was a digested baitfish of some sort, and my shrimp. The shrimp was in it’s stomach so the horn and tail were facing out the mouth.
I usually hook the shrimp in last segment before the tail. I’ve found they stay alive for a couple casts and it gives a natural presentation. I also lose a good bit of fish when rigging this way since they seem to hit the head.
Do you guys have more luck hooking them near the horn?
