The next evolution of artificial shrimp lures, the Savage Gear TPE Panic Popping Shrimp is designed to more accurately mimic the different swimming actions of real life shrimp. One of inshore fish species favorite meals, the shrimp has largely been overlooked by soft plastics companies as they were unable to capture the essence of the real thing. In comes Savage Gear, the company known for their incredibly realistic lures that display both the appearance and actions of living creatures. Constructed from a durable TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) material, the TPE Popping Shrimp is very tough rendering it nearly indestructible no matter how vicious the strikes are. In addition to the stronger plastic formulation, Savage Gear incorporated a nylon mesh throughout the bait for increased durability. Although sharing a similar appearance to the previous 3D Shrimp, the TPE Panic Popping Shrimp possesses antennae and legs that flare out in a much different, more deliberate manner.
The neatest thing about the Savage Gear TPE Panic Popping Shrimp is the ability to switch up its action. The lure possesses a hook pocket running down the back that enables it to be rigged facing either direction creating two drastically different movements. Rigged forward - hook eye around the head - the shrimp falls backward away from the angler as if it were fleeing quickly from predators. When reversed, the shrimp is very casual swimming unsuspectingly along ready to be devoured.
Rigging the Panic Popping Shrimp is very easy. The bait was engineered with an internal belly weight allowing it to be fished with just the addition of a hook if desired for fly-lining or using the pop and cork technique. Anglers can also choose to utilize the Savage Gear Standup Jighead should they wish to fish it a bit deeper or toss it around bottom structure. To really get the most out of this soft plastic shrimp imitator, we suggest adding a dab of Pro-Cure Shrimp Scent.
The Savage Gear TPE Panic Popping Shrimp measures 4" in length available in many excellent colors.
