In my opinion, the coolest looking shrimp lure debuting at the ICAST 2012 this year is the Unfair lure’s unfair shrimp.
It is a weighted hard plastic shrimp. Not only is the body realistic but the eye are as well. It even swims backwards just like a real shrimp.
Paul Reenen, the inventor of the lure (who is a very accomplished angler) say’s the shrimp sinks head first then when you give a jerk, the rises to the surface like a real shrimp trying to skip away from predators. This would be very very cool indeed.
There are 2 versions, a sinker and a floater each in 2 sizes.
1/4oz and 1/2 oz
85 mm and 110 mm
Retail is expected to be under $10.00
They did not have any samples to try out as they are waiting for their first shipment still. I hope to get a couple samples to do a a little real world test on them soon.
You can see the video of Paul explaining the principle in this video we got from ICAST 2012.
