Tips on Shrimping in Taiwan

 

#1 Use Your Time Wisely

You'll be paying by the hour, so the time you spend is very valuable.
As soon as you reel in a shrimp, quickly put on some bait and put the sucker back in. 

#2 All About The Bait

Free bait is provided, but it's not always the best choice.
Ask for a better bait (usually free), especially if they notice that you haven't caught anything.

#3 Patience Is The Key

However you want to spend that time waiting, it's all about being patient.
Socialize and drink some beer. Without even trying, a shrimp will latch onto your bait.

#4 Less Crowded

Go where it's less crowded, but not completely isolated from people.
I like to stay around the corners or move to an area where people just caught some for themselves. 

#5 It's All On The Wrist

The trick is to tug slowly. As soon as you see the floaty moving or going under water, usually a shrimp has latched onto your bait. Tug a little and if you feel there's some sort of hold onto your line, quickly yank it out from the water.  TADA! - you have a shrimp!

 
 

Grill them, order some Chinese food and down some beer while your at it. Night well spent!
