I've watched steelhead take whole sandshrimp and repeatedly spit them out and re-take them until that big claw comes off...pretty fascinating. Sometimes if there are a bunch of steelhead in a pool and you throw a sandshrimp in the middle of them several will go after it. Pretty intersresting way to watch steelhead behavior if you are done fishing for the day.
I like to rig mine headfirst meaning the tail is toward your rod. I don't know if it makes that much difference but it's the way I do it.

Just a plain sand shrimp, no other color and a splitshot, used to bang Summer Steelhead for us, either drifted or plunked in the Siletz gorge. Wilson too.

Rigged them just like you said Stew. Always have removed that big claw too. They also like crawdad, their natural food scent or peeled tails if you can find them.

That is a good question...

As far as I can tell, the big white claws(males) are used to catch big nooks(usually)

Now the pink shrimp(females) catch more steelhead as long as they aren't too big.

So size of the shrimp has alot to do with it.

Some guys swear by the big white claw in high water conditions. The claw actually *Glows* which helps the fish see your bait more easily.

Now if you put *Marie's Shrimp Scent* on your baits, you will catch more fish no matter what!

Hope this helps some!

I would say that as far as bait goes I like sand shrimp better than any other bait. I just wished they lasted longer :depressed: I'm sure most of you are familiar with that "long forgotten" sand shrimp smell in your boat or vehicle :shocked: I like the way Marie let's you pick your shrimp.
