It’s reef fishing time!

Most people think that you need live bait when you’re fishing nearshore reefs.

But it’s definitely not a necessity.

How do we know?

We just had an awesome trip to some nearshore reefs with Capt. Hollywood Johnson using just frozen shrimp, mullet, and ballyhoo.

We caught some delicious snapper, including a beast of a mutton snapper.

And in this video, Capt. Hollywood will show you the two rigs we were using to catch these fish.

You’ll also learn a tip for how to keep frozen shrimp on the hook longer, so you can catch more fish with them.

Have any questions about using frozen bait?

Or any suggestions for rigging frozen shrimp?
