How To Shore Cast Using Shrimp!
This tutorial is for the beginning angler on how to set-up your equipment to bait cast from shore. Today i'll be using frozen shrimp but will collect live bait (ie crab & glass shrimp) as back up. My main bait casting rig is a custom 13'3" IRW rod with a Shimano Ultegra 5500 CI4. My second rig is a Okuma 10'9" T-40X with a Shimano C3000 Stradic. I'll be casting using the IRW but latter on i'll also quickly rig the Okuma as well, both with frozen shrimp.
This tutorial will visually show how i rig my bait casting rig, better then pointing at a drawing. If you want to just view how it caught a Omilu (Bluefin Trevally) go to time frame 13:48 to see the action.
This method works with all live/dead baits from shrimp, fish, squid to crab for most species under 50lb (for bigger fish i'd add a rub line). In murky water i use cork to suspend the bait off the bottom for predators who visualize their prey. You don't have to use the same equipment that i employ but the technique i use does work. Use it as a template & vary it for your style, location & species you're targeting.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxvPRYv-c2s
