Under the Horn
Shrimp have a hard, serrated protrusion that protects their heads. This creates a solid hooking point, but make sure to use light, wire hooks and keep the point shallow. Avoid hitting the dark spot (its brain) or you'll kill the shrimp. It's not a lost cause if this happens, but your bait will lack the motion that helps attract predators. This is a good rigging option for fishing under a cork or making short pitches to targeted structures like a pier or bridge piling, because the horn-hooking rig typically pulls free on long, snappy casts.
