The Snap and Glide was created by me, Capt. Joe Johnson, an inshore fishing guide, to imitate a live brown shrimp. I wanted to make the best fake shrimp I could so I started sculpting. I went through several prototypes before arriving at the conclusion that I couldn't have just one or two shrimp. I offer the Snap and Glide in four sizes, a 3" (Stealth tail), a 3.25" (Jr. tail) and a 4.25" - 4.5" inch with two different tails... fancy (longer tail/shown above) and regular (like the Jr.). The Stealth and the Jr. are similar, but the Stealth features a more slowly falling bait with a shorter wider body and a stealth bomber looking tail.
The Snap and Glide Shrimp is made from U.S. sourced materials like Pro-Cure shrimp oil from the Pacific N.W. and wild caught shrimp powder from Louisiana. It smells like a real shrimp. When properly rigged it moves like a living shrimp.
Add a dab of Pro-Cure Super Shrimp Gel and you've got a winner.
I recommend the Grip-Pin-Swim hook from Mustad #2 and 4/0 or the Owner Down Shot hook 1/0 and 3/0 for the originally intended "Snap and Glide" action. Model#G91768NP-BN
The Snap and Glide Shrimp is extremely versatile allowing for a variety of rigging options. It can be fished on a jig head, live bait hook, or any number of worm or jerk bait hooks.
When fishing the Snap and Glide a slow presentation is best. The lure will softly glide forward when reverse Texas rigged allowing it to be snapped backward like a real shrimp. Once the lure reflexes it will again continue it's forward glide.
To achieve a faster sink rate a pinch-on weight can be used. The forward speed as well as the glide plane can be controlled by the placement of the weight on the hook shank.
When Texas rigged like a worm or standard swimbait the Snap and Glide will drift forward naturally and weedlessly.
Use a jighead to plumb the deeper channels, troughs, and flats with the Snap and Glide. It's a great search bait.
The Snap and Glide Shrimp and a popping cork go together like biscuits and gravy. All of the above mentioned tactics can be used under a float with great success.
Procure more fish. Fish more Pro-Cure.
