Rigging Florida Flats Shrimp
Rigging a Florida Flats shrimp will keep your bait on the hook for those stealthy long casts across those grassy beds full of what ails you; trout to reds and other fish too. Using a Florida Flats rig on your live shrimp will also keep it virtually weed less when slow presentation is involved or under a cork in the grass or weed lines and it is a rigging every angler should know. Angling deep waters to the skinnies, reds, trout, Snook, jacks, ladies and on and on all eat shrimp. It is a main stay of their diet all year long. In the summertime, it is hot here in Florida and so too is the water. Fish are extremely aggressive, with the exception of the heat part of the day at around 2 O’clock, where they and sane people are seeking shelter from the sun in the cool of a mangrove, bridge or other overhead structure, underwater or not. For us not so sane anglers, we are out casting back into these cool zones and slowly, are making a “V” wake from the shrimp in maybe triggering a bite. In order to create this V-wake, one must rig it up Florida Flats style!
In rigging a Florida Flats style shrimp; you will be able to cast with more force without casting your bait to the fish and your hook under the boat. Using a 2/0 circle hook is best in angling reds to trout as it is wide enough for both and light enough to add a split shot right at the knot attaching the hook to the line, which helps in that “V” action the bait makes when pulled across the waters surface. Shrimp size, determines to what you are fishing for. Unfortunately, sometimes the bait shops have but only one size fits all.
Start by running the hook point right into the underside of the shrimp, near the split in its back tail, known as the anal section. After inserting between the back tails at the split, push the hook about half an inch straight into the meat cavity of the first section and bring it out of the shrimp, making sure you stay away from the blood vein running down the middle of the shrimp. Now slide your split shot between the split of the shrimp tail and you will have a shrimp that can never be thrown off as the split shot holds the hook in place. If you pierce this point, your shrimp will not be as active as if you do not cut this membrane. Much like the spot on its head, under the horn, the brain, if it is pierced you have a dead shrimp. Sliding the hook out of the shrimp, turning the point back towards the underbelly of the shrimp, insert the hook through the second shell plating, where as the point barely sticks out of the shrimps back. You want a slightly exposed point so as when the bite occurs, the circle will begin to turn on the initial strike, giving a better hook set and deeper penetration of the fishes jaw plate.

I am an entrepreneurial outdoors hands on writer with ecology to stewardship on my mind. We have but one planet, we have almost pissed it away, we need to change our habits before we, and ourselves change for the worst. “Respecting the environment is everybody's game, if you plan on playing in the future!" I speak my mind openly and without use of pseudonyms. My address and phone number are public knowledge. As well, my computer sites are open to the public and one does not get much more transparent than this. Open book policy and honesty are given away free, right here; all you need to do is read, learn and pass it on, another form of mentoring, teaching and that is why I have my websites. I have been angling since age seven. Commercial Captain, Trawler mate, Charter and pleasure; I have fifty years of fishing experience. Some people play golf and socialize where ever; I fish and write about it. Combine fishing and photography is both a past time and an addiction as well with our feathered creatures aloft. This web site is another hobby of mine, along with my various blogs and articles found out on the web. I invite you to use it at your leisure and am in hope we may learn yet another trick in catching more fish with fun to pass down on to others that too may wish to go fishing; “Positive Mentoring through Fishing, FISH ON!"
