Savage Gear Lures


Savage Gear TPE Manic Shrimp

The Savage Gear TPE Manic Shrimp is a lifelike shrimp lure designed with an anatomically accurate profile and swimming action imitating small shrimp and crayfish. The TPE Manic Shrimp is perhaps the most realistic shrimp bait ever created. Designed from 3D scans of real shrimp, the TPE Manic Shrimp is incredibly detailed with every appendage carefully crafted to not only look real, but also possess a natural movement. Inshore saltwater sport fish see more specialized angling pressure today than any time in History. For this reason Savage Gear set out to make one of the most life-like shrimp baits possible in both looks and underwater movements to trigger these pressured fish into biting. we offer the TPE Manic Shrimp in the 2.5" size which weighs in at 3/25oz and possesses a slow sinking action. The TPE Shrimp is intended to be rigged with a shank weighted EWG hook in order to keep the bait level as it sinks and swims.

Manic Shrimp Features
  • Based on 3D Scans from a Real Shrimp.
  • Specially designed tail for life like kicking action.
  • Ultra-realistic paint jobs perfectly mimic many shrimp species.
  • Exaggerated legs and antenna for life like actions on the fall or retrieve.
  • The tail section is infused with Nylon mesh to help prevent tearing on the hook set or from short bites.
  • Rigged with a weighted ultra-sharp EWG hook.

Freedom Lure Jigs
