Fishing with Sand Shrimp

Fishing with Live Bait & Natural Baits

Sand shrimp, also called ghost shrimp, are a popular bait for a variety of different fish.  These shrimp live in the sand, so many anglers will actually catch them with a shrimp pump.  The fish that you can catch with a regular shrimp will also eat a sand shrimp, so that’s almost everything inshore and several species of fish offshore too.

In freshwater, sand shrimp are a very popular bait for salmon and steelhead.  When the fish enter the river to spawn, the sand shrimp is one of the better baits to use.
