For a change, try and tag the hook with 1/2 a night crawler before placing on the shrimp. Learned that a few years ago and sometimes my bite picks up as much as 50% on the poles with crawler/shrimp compared to poles with only shrimp on, setting next to each other. Still not sure if it's the added smell or the motion of the loose crawler...disclaimer: I primarily fish the river.

Also helpful at times to split the shrimp down the middle or butterfly it, turning it into two pieces. May have to run the peace between your fingers or couple times after splitting. The goal here is to turn your piece of shrimp into a flapper rig giving it motion, instead of just a chunk of meat
The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but, attainable.
A perpetual series of occassions for hope.

I cure mine with steelhead nectar, firecure, or add firepower krill.

The nice thing about curing shrimp is that it toughens it up and adds color.

When i ise steelhead nectar I add kosher salt ans sugar and the osmotic pressure from the additives draws water from the shrinp and turns them into shrimp raisins.

I use 70/9O key west shrimp from Meijer, theyre a good buy and a nice convenient size, about the size of a nickel. a whole one is about right for murky water, if you want to tip a jig or yarnball hook you can cut one in thirds etc.

Cooked and raw straight from the bag works too.

I carry 3-4 different types of cured shrimp w me when im float fishing.
