    Has anyone tried the Livetarget shrimp? Looks pretty impressive, wonder if it catches fish!

    I see this is old but I kind of hope someone from Livetarget stumbles across it...

    IMO, Livetarget shrimp are terrible. They look pretty real in the package. Aside from that, the action is weak, the hooks slide out with a hard cast leaving the shrimp to sit fugly on the hook and lastly - they fall apart, crazy fast.

    I've tried the big and small sizes. Just last month. Same problems with both. There are less expensive options that hold up better and catch fish so... Again, just my opinion and your mileage may vary.

    If you like a great artificial shrimp take a look at marker 54 lures from here in Texas. They work..

    My buddy Joshua Morris is the owner and inventor of these lures, great guy and great baits. I finally talked him into making a 3" hard bodied shrimp and I bought several today for sight casting.

    I used to use them under a popping cork and catch trout all day. Their eyes pop off and they look less realistic after a few fish, but that doesn't seem to bother the trout. If I ever decide to use a popping cork I always go with the live target shrimp underneath.

    I prefer the D.O.A. shrimp to all others. Very hardy and proven...

    DOA shrimp and Vudu shrimp work great.

    I'm pretty die-hard DOA when it comes to soft plastics. I'm growing to like the Z Man stuff though because it's pinfish resistant.
